His passing was confirmed in a statement on the official Pee Wee Herman page on facebook, which included a personal statement from Paul.
Please accept my apology for not going public with what I’ve been facing the last six years. I have always felt a huge amount of love and respect from my friends, fans and supporters. I have loved you all so much and enjoyed making art for you.Paul Reubens
