Michelle Dockery's Fiance John Dineen Dies at 34 After Battling Cancer

Michelle Dockery‘s fiance John Dineen has tragically passed away at the age of 34 on Sunday (December 13) after battling a rare form of cancer.

“”The family is very grateful for the support and kindness they have received but would kindly request that they are left to grieve in private,” a spokesperson for the Downton Abbey star, who turns 34 years old today, told Just Jared in a statement.

John, a commercial public relations executive, was originally from Ireland and after learning of his diagnosis, he flew back home to spend time with his parents. Michelle was with him at Marymount Hospice in Cork, Ireland when he passed, ITV reports

The couple met back in 2013 and were reportedly introduced by Michelle‘s Downton Abbey co-star Allen Leech. Our thoughts are with Michelle and John‘s loved ones during this time.
