The 'Mysterious Girl' hitmaker is being comforted by friends and family after his 54-year-old brother lost his battle against kidney cancer, reported Daily Mail online.
"Peter is devastated. He was very, very close to his brother. This is the very first family member Peter has experienced losing. He just needs time to grieve," Peter's spokesperson said in a statement. Andrew, who was diagnosed with kidney cancer in February, was understood to have been responding well to treatment before his situation worsened last month.
Peter alongwith his parents flew from their home in Australia to the UK last week to be at Andrew's bedside. Peter recently cancelled tour dates so he could spend as much time as possible with Andrew.
Andrew regularly appeared in various reality TV shows alongside Peter and offered emotional support when his marriage to glamour model Katie Price - mother of his two children - broke down in 2009.
