Harry Styles’ stepfather, Robin Twist, has sadly passed away at the age of 57.
It is thought that he died earlier this week after losing his battle with cancer.
A spokesperson for Harry has said that “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 played an important part in Harry and his sister Gemma’s upbringing and the One Direction singer even played best man at Robin and his Mum Anne’s wedding. He also admitted that giving a best mans speech was “the most nerve-wracking” moment of his life.
The One Direction boys have also taken to social media to send their condolences.
