Justin Timberlake Mourns Death of Longtime Backup Singer Nicole Hurst

Justin Timberlake is mourning the loss of one of his longtime colleagues.

The 40-year-old singer took to Instagram on Friday (August 6) to mourn the death of Nicole Hurst, one of his longtime backup singers who was part of the Tennessee Kids.

“My heart is so heavy. We lost a beautiful soul this week. Nicole lit up every room she walked into. On and off the stage she was a constant source of joy and positivity,” Justin began his post.

He continued, “Some things feel so unfair and we will never understand why they happen. What I do know is that we were blessed to laugh with her, to travel with her, and to experience her infectious smile and love for a life filled with music. Nicole, itโ€™s not enough to say that I am going to miss you dearly. Thank you for your light. I will do my best to carry that with me. I love you, my sister. Forever family and forever a TN Kid. ๐Ÿ’””

Nicole‘s cause of death is unclear at this time. Back in 2013, she was diagnosed with Stage 2 triple positive breast cancer at the age of 31 and the cancer escalated to Stage 3. In 2015, she gave an interview in which she said her cancer was in remission.

We’re sending our thoughts and condolences to Nicole‘s loved ones during this difficult time.
