Peter Andre in mourning after brother Andrew dies of cancer

London, December 18 (ANI): Peter Andre is said to be 'devastated' after his eldest brother Andrew passed away on Sunday, losing his cancer fight.

A spokesperson told the Daily Mirror: "Peter is devastated. He was very, very, very close to his brother. This is the first family member Peter has experienced losing."

The representative then added that Andre 'needs time to grieve'.

Peter, 39, postponed his tour earlier this month when his older brother's health deteriorated.

Andrew was diagnosed with kidney cancer in February and spent most of this year undergoing chemotherapy.

Andre rushed to his sibling's side in his London hospital, while his parents flew to England from Australia last week.

Andrew's wife was also said to be by his bedside. (ANI)
