Madonna’s older brother Anthony Ciccone has died at the age of 66, a member of his family has announced.
Ciccone was one of the star’s seven siblings and is said to have passed away on Friday night.
He had struggled with alcoholism and was reportedly homeless for many years, at one point living under a bridge.
His brother-in-law Joe Henry broke the news on Instagram, writing that he had “exited this earthly plane”, alongside an old black-and-white photo of him.
Madonna has not publicly commented on Ciccone’s passing, but the pop star did like Joe Henry’s Instagram post that revealed the news.
