‘Euphoria’ Star’s Family Files Mesothelioma Claim Against Johnson & Johnson

Last May, the father of ‘Euphoria’ star Angus Cloud died of malignant mesothelioma after years of using Johnson & Johnson’s Baby Powder. Last October, the victim’s family, still reeling from the loss of their patriarch and the accidental overdose days later of the 25-year-old actor, filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the company that manufactured the product.

Johnson & Johnson Faces Mesothelioma Claim from Late Star’s Family

Angus Cloud died of a fatal accidental overdose shortly after his father, Conor Joseph Hickey died of malignant mesothelioma at the age of 65. Months later, Cloud’s mother Lisa, and his sisters Molly and Fiona filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Johnson & Johnson, joining tens of thousands of other victims seeking compensation for the damage they say the company caused.

According to the mesothelioma lawsuit, Mr. Hickey used Johnson & Johnson’s Baby Powder regularly from 1957 to 2023. They blame asbestos fibers contained within the company’s talc-based product for his illness and death.

Johnson & Johnson’s Continues to Battle Mesothelioma Claims

Speaking of the company’s continuing efforts to deny its role in victim’s mesothelioma and ovarian cancer, the family’s representative said, “Johnson & Johnson has gotten away with and continues to get away with misrepresenting their product even in 2023 — after numerous juries and courts have found their product causes cancer — they keep lying to the public and telling everybody it’s safe.”

In the face of over 40,000 mesothelioma and ovarian cancer claims, the company has discontinued the use of talc in its baby powder product and has been attempting to settle claims against it out of court. It also has attempted to place all of the asbestos claims against it into a new subsidiary, but that strategy has not yet proven successful.
