Harry Styles devastated following sad death of his stepfather Robin Twist
The singer’s beloved stepdad passed away this week after losing his battle with cancer
HARRY Styles has been left heartbroken following the loss of his stepfather Robin Twist.
The singer’s stepdad sadly passed away this week after losing his battle with cancer aged just 57.
A representative for Harry, 23, said: “Harry’s stepfather, Robin Twist, sadly passed away this week after a long battle with cancer.
“The family asks for privacy at this time.”
Robin helped raise Harry and his younger sister Gemma during their teenage years.
Harry was best man when his mum Anne Cox married Robin in 2013 and admitted that giving his speech was “the most nerve-wracking thing” he’d ever done.
He said: “I practised on my own for days beforehand, on the sofa reciting it to myself. I tried to make it have a bit of everything.”
The devastating news comes just six months after Harry’s One Director bandmate Louis Tomlinson suffered the loss of his mum Johannah Deakin.
Louis was left heartbroken after his mum died in December following a long battle with leukaemia aged 43.
