His friend Susie Stenberg, who appeared with him on The X-Life, revealed in March that Dennis was living in his car towards the end of his life.
Dennis, who Susie described as ‘the most loving and loyal person’, allegedly contacted her and told her he loved her on the night of her death.
X-Life, which ran for just one season on VH1 in 2011, revolved around extreme athletes and the women in their lives.
During that time Denise was engaged to dashing Canadian professional skater Pierre-Luc Gagnon for three years.
Their relationship issues went on camera and they decided to take a break in the season finale.
But they apparently got back together later and welcomed a son, Leo Wolfe, who is now seven years old.
On New Year’s Eve, this past year, Denise posted a heartfelt tribute to her son, whom she referred to by the nickname Lion.
‘To my Lion Wolf, you are the reason the sun shines in the sky, why the moon shines, full and the stars twinkle,’ he wrote.
The Way They Were: Denise was engaged to dashing Canadian professional skater Pierre-Luc Gagnon for three years during the show.
Baby Mine: Despite taking a break at the end of the show, Pierre and Denise apparently got back together later and welcomed a son, Leo Wolff, now seven.
‘Leo why the world are you good baby and magical. Thank you for being my son my baby! Love of my life, no one compares to you.’
In an interview with tattoo-themed magazine Incode, Dennis shed some light on his warm bond with his son.
‘I love being a mother! I have a beautiful 8 year old son named Leo Wolf, boys rule and he is the light of my life!’ she gushed.
‘We wrestle, I do my Russian wrestler accent and body slam the little mouse into the bed! Leo makes life better and being his mother is a gift!’
He admitted in the same interview that he had ‘gone through a difficult custody battle’, but did not elaborate.
Susie previously appeared on The X-Life as the wife and marketing manager of motocross driver Jeremy ‘Twitch’ Stenberg.
Twitch, whose nickname comes from his Tourette syndrome, is still with Susie and shares three daughters with her.
