The former Spice Girl wrote a brief and touching tribute on Sunday to her father on Instagram. She shared a black and white photo of her sister Danielle and herself holding hands with their dad, Martin Brown. Their fingertips are clutched together over a white sheet.
“It is with great sadness after a 5yr battle to multiple myeloma cancer our loving father Martin Brown passed away age 63 peacefully yesterday,” Brown wrote. “Both of us his children were by his side and would like to say thank you to St Gemma’s and all the doctors and nurses for there amazing care and support over the years.”
As for why the sisters have been fighting, you have to keep track of a family drama that has been public at least since the mid-2000s. The two were reportedly only speaking to each other on Twitter for a time, and in one round of the back-and-forth, Danielle said she worried about her sister's mental state.
