With a broken and heavy heart, I want to share that the love of my life, my best friend and husband, Jimmy, passed away Wednesday morning.

He was not alone as I was with him along with a few close friends until the end.

He will be truly missed and no one can ever replace the love I have for him.

May he rest in peace.

We would like to thank his fans for their continuous loyalty and support. We will come out with a full statement very soon. We ask that you please respect the family’s privacy while we mourn the loss of this great man.”
