Tom Mann, the “X Factor” star, experienced a tragic loss last weekend when his fiancee committed suicide just hours before their wedding.
Dani Hampson, a 34-year-old publicist, had no evident health problems, according to TMZ, and the cause of her death has not been determined.
Dani uploaded a photo of herself and Tom, as well as their 8-month-old son Bowie, two days before she died.
Tom and Dani were actually supposed to get married Sept. 25, 2020, but the pandemic got in the way. At the time she posted, “I can’t wait to marry you, but the world has other plans.”
Tom announced Dani’s death Monday, calling her the “brightest light in any room,” adding he will miss her forever. He told his followers, “I can’t believe I am writing these words but my darling Dani – my best friend, my everything and more, the love of my life – passed away in the early hours of Saturday morning, 18th June. On what was supposed to be the happiest day of our lives ended in irreversible heartbreak.”
He went on to say, “I am completely broken trying to process this and I honestly don’t know where to go from here, but I do know I need to use any strength I can muster for our little boy.”
