“I never have, nor ever will lie about Luke. I stand by everything I’ve ever said. Heart failure is what happened yes. By choice or not. His heart failed” Ben Chow
“The statement left on Luke’s IG page is misleading. Luke was not close with his family, we don’t know who posted it. Heart attacks can be an accident or they can be induced by a purposeful action.” – Fouad Abiad.

“If you choose… to do something, you decide it’s the end, there are ways to do it. Whereby you create heart failure, I don’t need to say much more than that.” – Ben Chow – 3 August, 2020
Luke was also very popular on social media thanks to his weekly shows with Fouad Abiad.
Fouad and Luke discussed every topic possible related to bodybuilding and life in general.
