As per the reports, the singer along with some of the family members had been constantly reaching out to the late man however he refused their assistance.

He had struggled with alcoholism which eventually affected him in several ways with one being homeless for several years. It was even reported that he used to be living under a bridge in Michigan at one point in his life.

Even after the difficult circumstances, she gave a tribute to him by sharing an Instagram story to show her gratitude “for blowing my mind as a young girl.” The duo used to have a complicated relationship with Ciccone slamming the musician and family on several occasions for not caring for him. However, they made amends as he finished his rehab program in December 2017.
