Sharon Stone’s younger brother, Patrick Stone, died suddenly on Sunday morning.
His death is being ruled as a sudden cardiac death due to “heart disease”.
He was 57 years old.
Sharon paid tribute to her brother in a short post on Instagram late Monday afternoon.
Sharon also confirmed her brother’s sudden death in an emotional video posted to her Twitter account:
Patrick’s passing comes less than two years after his son River died at just 11 months due to total organ failure.
Patrick’s wife, Tasha Stone, took to Instagram to announce her husband’s death on Monday.
“My heart feels like it’s been ripped out of my chest. Patrick went to be with our sweet River … I don’t know what else to say, he was my world,” she heartbreakingly wrote, according to TMZ.
