Many fans are sending Harry Styles their love today, after his grandpa, Brian, tragically passed away. He unfortunately died after a long battle with Parkinson’s disease. The One Direction member’s mom, Anne Twist, shared the sad news via Instagram on August 23, 2021.

“My heart is broken once more… Our family has been reeling from the loss of our dad/grandad/brother/friend,” she shared. “Dad, you were so brave and courageous, always smiling and with a sharp and witty comment at just the right time. We love you totally and forever. Sleep sweetly you beautifully man. Go be with Mum. Thank you everyone for your thoughts and comments.”

She also posted a link to Parkinsons.org, where you can donate money to help “deliver new treatments” for the illness, which is described as “a disorder of the central nervous system that affects movement, often including tremors.”

“Rest easy, Grandad,” Styles’ sister, Gemma Styles, also wrote on Instagram. “Effortless comic and all around wonderful man.”

This Isn’t The First Family Member That Harry Styles Has Lost

Harry Styles

Unfortunately, this isn’t the first family member that the singer has lost. Back in 2017, his step-dad, Robin Twist, sadly died after a battle with cancer. He married Styles’ mom back in June 2013, and the “Watermelon Sugar” crooner served as the best man at the wedding. At the time, his fellow 1D bandmates took to Twitter to share their love and support.

“Devastated to hear the news about Robin. He was such a lovely, kind and funny guy. Sending all my love to the whole family,” Louis Tomlinson tweeted. “You’ll be missed mate.”

“Harry, my heart really goes out to you – such an extremely sad day for us all who knew Robin. What a kind, gentle and beautiful soul, a true rarity to find in today’s world. Sometimes they really do take the best of us far too soon,” Liam Payne added in a message of his own.

“Very sad to hear about the loss of Robin,” Niall Horan wrote at the time. “For those who had the pleasure of knowing Robin will know that he was the nicest, kindest, most generous, hilariously funny guy you’ll have met. He always had a smile on his face even when he was battling the terrible illness. Love ya, H. Please give your mum and the rest of the family a massive hug from my family.”

Harry Styles Is Pretty Busy At The Moment

Styles is currently gearing up to embark on his world tour, which kicks off on September 4, 2021 in Las Vegas, NV. It will stretch over 30 cities and will conclude on November 20, 2021, in Los Angeles, CA. But that’s not all! Back in July, the musician confirmed that he has new tunes coming soon, while giving us an update on the tour.

For those who don’t know, Styles was actually supposed to hit the road last month, but because of the coronavirus pandemic he announced that he was postponing the concerts until the fall. And while sharing the news, he also dropped a hint that he’s going to release some new songs soon — so you might want to prepare yourselves!

Love on Tour will be going out across the USA this September and I could not be more excited for these shows. As always, the well-being of my fans, band, and crew, is my top priority. Safety guidelines will be available on the respective venue websites to ensure we can all be together as safely as possible. Please notice that some dates have changed, and new shows have been added,” he wrote. “To everyone in the UK and across the world, I can’t wait to see you again, but for obvious reasons it is just not possible at this time. I will be sharing more news soon about shows across the globe and new music. I love you all so much. I’m excited and I can’t wait to see you.”

“New music?!?!?” Naturally, those two words quickly caught the eyes of millions of fans. Plus, did we mention that Styles was spotted in Bath, England, earlier this year? Some people were quick to point out that is the location for the studio that his last LP, Fine Line, was recorded in. Coincidence? We hope not.

He’s Also Got A Few New Movies In The Works

Between preparing for tour and recording his new music, the pop star — who made his acting debut in 2017 — actually filmed two new movies recently, so get ready to see him on the big screen again! The first is called Don’t Worry Darling, which wrapped filming back in February. Styles will star alongside Florence Pugh (who fans may recognize from Little WomenMidsommarBlack Widow and more), Chris Pine (who is most known for his role in Star Trek, but also acted in Wonder WomanInto the Woods and others) and Fifty Shades of Grey‘s Dakota Johnson. But want to know the best part? Drum roll please… Olivia Wilde is directing the movie! Plus, Katie Silberman (who was behind films like Isn’t It Romantic, the Netflix movie Set It Up and more) wrote the screenplay. Wow, talk about a dream team.

Deadline reported that the film “is set in an isolated, utopian community in the 1950s California desert.” According to Collider, Pugh will play “an unhappy housewife who slowly begins to question her own sanity when she starts to notice strange occurrences.” As for Pine, he will star as “the leader of a mysterious worksite.” The outlet adds, “All the men are employed just outside of town, and Pine’s character is revered by all of his staffers and their wives, almost in a cult-like fashion.”

Johnson’s character reportedly lives next door to Pugh, and “will begins to exhibit strange, paranoid behavior and tries to warn Pugh that everything in their community is not what it seems.” But what about the 1D heartthrob, you ask? Well, Collider reported that the 26-year-old will play “Pugh’s picture-perfect husband, who loves her dearly, but is hiding a dark secret from her.” Sounds intense!

The other movie is called My Policeman and is going to be based off a book by Bethan Roberts. Emma Corrin and David Dawson have also been cast in the flick.

“The story takes place in the late 1990s, when the arrival of elderly invalid Patrick into Marion and Tom’s home, triggers the exploration of seismic events from 40 years previous: the passionate relationship between Tom and Patrick at a time when homosexuality was illegal,” the synopsis reads.

There’s also rumors that he’s going to star in the upcoming Marvel movie, The Eternals. According to reports, Styles is set to play Starfox, A.K.A. Thanos’ brother, in the new movie, but it’s still unconfirmed. Aside from Styles, some other big names have also been cast in the movie, including Gemma ChanRichard Madden, Angelina Jolie, Kit HaringtonKumail NanjianiLauren RidloffBrian Tyree HenryLia McHughDon Lee and Barry Keoghan. It’s set to come out on November 5, 2021.

Rest in peace, Brian. We care keeping the Styles family in our thoughts during this time.
