One Direction Pays Tribute to Harry Styles’ Stepfather Following His Death

By  | 

2017 was going amazingly for Harry Styles. He released his eponymous first solo album, which debuted at #1 on the US Billboard 200; he reportedly had a new woman in his life, Tess Ward. What more could a successful 23-year-old musician ask for?

Sadly, 2017 isn’t entirely full of joy for the famed singer. Not only is he reportedly no longer dating his food blogger girlfriend anymore, but his beloved stepfather, Robin Twist, died earlier this week.

“Harry’s stepfather, Robin Twist, sadly passed away this week after a long battle with cancer,” revealed the “Sign of the Times” singer’s rep to People. “The family asks for privacy at this time.”

The late-57-year-old man married Harry’s mother, Anne Cox, in June 2013, with the One Direction member serving as best man, standing by Robin’s side at the wedding.

Though Harry has yet to speak out about the tragic event, his fellow 1D members, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne & Niall Horan, are sending their love and support, and expressing their own mournful feelings about Robin:

Our hearts go out to Harry and the rest of his family at this sad time.
