Peter Andre has been crushed by the death of his brother Andrew, who was sadly killed following a year-long fight against kidney cancer over the weekend. He died after being released from hospital, and had his entire family at his bedside.
Michael Andre broke the news on his Twitter page yesterday, writing: “R.I.P. my beautiful brother. My brother Andrew lost his battle with cancer in the early hours of Sunday morning. We were all with him, holding him, till his very last breath. Absolutely devastated. So I thank you all so much for your kind words and messages you’ve sent. I’m sure he is reading them with me…. Thank you again.” Pete also issued a statement via his spokesperson about the 54-year-old’s death: “Pete just can’t speak at the moment. Everyone was at Andrew’s side — his wife, daughter, Pete and their parents — the whole family. 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.”
