One of the world’s most beloved celebrities, Paula Abdul, is needing your prayers.
The brilliantly talented dancer, singer, and television personality was recently hit with a devastating blow that brought her to her knees.
Just one year ago, Abdul tragically lost her mother, Lorraine Abdul (85). She has always been extremely close to her parents, so this rocked her to the core.
Now, news has been released that her father, Harry Abdul (85), has also passed away. One source elaborated on Abdul’s state: “First, Paula’s mom died and now her dad is gone. It’s like an emotional one-two punch.”
Following the release of her devastating loss, Abdul took to Twitter to thank her fans for their words of encouragement. “My father was, and always will be, my superhero. Thank you ALL for the heartfelt condolences. Your love and support are comforting me during this difficult time.”
She also posted a heartwarming video of her and her father as she reminisced her beautiful time with him.
“‘Dad: a daughter’s first love.’ - Unknown. / Everyone loved my father. He had a heart of gold and carried his heart on his sleeve wherever he went and shared it with everyone he came in contact with. Isn’t it a beautiful gift that I still feel his spirit with me?”
It was reported that Harry Abdul had been struggling with a grievous battle against Alzheimer’s disease for some time. He passed away quietly at his Los Angeles home.
Please keep the Abdul family in your thoughts and prayers during their loss.
