Tom Parker's health reportedly "deteriorated rapidly" in the days before his death. The Wanted singer tragically died yesterday at the age of 33 after being diagnosed with terminal brain cancer glioblastoma.
The father-of-two missed the first leg of The Wanted's tour after undergoing specialist cancer treatment in Spain, but friends admitted his health was deteriorating by the end of the tour.
Tom's last performance with The Wanted was in Liverpool on March 17, two weeks before his death. The singer was too frail to sing during some of the performance and could be seen sitting on a throne as he joined Nathan Sykes, Siva Kaneswaran, Max George and Jay McGuiness during the show, reports The Mirror.A family friend has said that Tom's condition got worse following the end of the tour.
They told The Sun : "Tom loved touring - he was an absolute rockstar and determined to join the boys on stage. He was enjoying playing two songs a night and was doing well performing but it really took it out of him. "We all noticed how quickly Tom deteriorated during the tour but he had no regrets - he really wanted to do it." Tom's tragic passing was announced yesterday by his wife Kelsey, with whom he shared two young children Aurelia and Bodhi.
