CELEBRITY Loss

Losing a child is an unbearable nightmare that no one should have to go through. Sadly, however, there are many people whose worst nightmare became a reality, as is the case of these stars who lost their kids at a young age.

British Actor Tim Roth and his family released a statement to the media on October 31 revealing that they had lost their 25-year-old son Cormac to cancer. The young composer and guitarist received a diagnosis of stage 3 germ cell cancer a year earlier and battled the disease courageously, but eventually succumbed and "died peacefully in the arms of his family who loved and adored him" on October 16. “He was a wild and electric ball of energy and his spirit was filled with light and goodness,” the statement read. “As wild as he was, Cormac was also the embodiment of kindness. A gentle soul who brought so much happiness and hope to those around him." 

More recently, the Nigerian Afrobeats star Davido lost his three-year-old son in what appears to be a tragic drowning. The incident occurred in the pool at the musician's Lagos home on October 31. Emergency services received a call from domestic staff at the house at around 22:00 pm local time and were unable to save the child's life. The eight members of staff working in the house at the time were taken in for questioning. 

Take a look at the celebrity parents who have suffered the tragic loss of their children.
