The Mysterious Girl hitmaker has been left ‘devastated’ by the death of his eldest brother Andrew Andre.

Andrew lost his battle with kidney cancer in the early hours of Sunday morning (16th December) surrounded by Peter and the rest of his family members. He was 54-years old.

A spokesperson for the singer has told The Mirror: “Peter is devastated. He was very, very close to his brother.

“This is the very first family member Peter has experienced losing. He just needs time to grieve.”

A family friend also added: “Everyone was with [Andrew] when he passed away. They all did everything they could for Andrew, and there wasn’t one waking minute when he wasn’t with somebody.”

Peter released a statement on his website, telling fans he was rescheduling his remaining tour dates after joining Andrew by his bedside, earlier this month.

Peter’s parents flew over from Australia last week, joining the rest of the family by his bedside at a London hospital.

Peter’s ex-wife Katie Price has also offered her condolences via Twitter, writing: “My thoughts are with the Andre family at this difficult time xx.”
