Tawny Kitaen reportedly died of a broken heart, her brother Jordan Kitaen has claimed.
The Bachelor Party actress, who died on May 7 in Newport Beach, lost her dad on April 12 from skin cancer, Jordan told TMZ.
The late star was apparently shattered by the news, and it was too difficult for her to bear.
There was no foul play involved in the 59-year-old's death or any drugs, pills, or alcohol found at the scene. The coroner is yet to ascertain the official cause of her death.
Jordan told the outlet their father's funeral was meant to occur days after she'd died.
"I love you dad, I'm at a lose for words, but I'll find them, I promise. For now, I'll just say I will miss you, more then any words I find could ever mean," she wrote on Twitter on April 13.https://twitter.com/Tawny_Kitaen/status/1381732846918770689?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw
Her children, Wynter and Raine, released a statement on the morning of May 8, which read, "We are heartbroken and saddened to announce the death of our mom. … We miss her and love her and we know her legacy will live on forever."
