It’s our very sad duty to report that Peter Andre’s brother Andrew Andre, 54, has died after a nearly year-long battle against kidney cancer.
Andrew died peacefully in his sleep with his family around him. He had been responding well to treatment at Chelsea’s Royal Marsden hosptial, but passed away on Sunday night after his health began to worsen last month.
Peter’s official spokesperson has released a statement to confirm the very sad news,
“Pete just can’t speak at the moment. Everyone was at Andrew’s side — his wife, daughter, Pete and their parents — the whole family," The Sun quotes.
“Andrew woke up, looked around at everyone to say goodbye, and then fell asleep. He passed away in his sleep. It was very peaceful.
“This is the first member of Pete’s immediate family to pass away and he is obviously devastated. The whole family is in shock and need time and privacy to grieve.”
“They did everything they possibly could to help Andrew. It has all happened so quickly. This time last year he just thought he had a tummy ache. It’s terrible.”
Our thoughts are with all of Andrew’s family at this very sad time.
