Corinne Bailey Rae's Husband Dies of Possible Drug Overdose

The husband of soul singer Corinne Bailey Rae was found dead from a suspected drug overdose, reports have said.

The body of 31-year-old musician Jason Rae was found on Saturday and The Daily Mail reports Corinne was not in the apartment when her husband’s body was found.

Mr. Rae was the saxophonist for the Haggis Horns, an eight-piece live funk extravaganza who combine funk, soul, hip-hop and afrobeat with jazz virtuosity.

Another man was arrested under suspicion of supplying the drugs to Mr. Rae but has already been freed on bail.

    No one deserves to be a widow. Well, if your partner is dying of natural causes at an old age, that seems more acceptable, but he was too young!
