This is so sad!
Kim Richards’ beloved ex-husband Monty Brinson has passed away from lung cancer at age 58, a source confirms to People. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star and Brinson were married from 1985-88, but they remained super close until the end. They share daughter Brooke, 29.
“Kim is devastated,” a source told the mag. The blonde reality star struggled with her ex’s ailing health on the Bravo show, and her relapse with alcohol was rumored to be fueled by stress over the situation.
Niece Paris Hilton shared some sweet words about her uncle following his death. “Heartbroken to hear the sad news of my Uncle @MontyBrinson’s passing after his long brave battle with cancer. He was such an incredible man with such a huge heart. He was so insightful positive about life, even with all he was going through. He always had a smile on his face lit up the room with his positive energy fun personality. He will be truly missed. My thoughts prayers are with @BrookeWiederhorn @KimRichards11 his family. #RIPMontyBrinson,” she captioned a photo collage on Instagram.
