Harry Styles‘ stepfather has died. He was 57 years old.
“Harry’s stepfather, Robin Twist, sadly passed away this week after a long battle with cancer,” the singer’s rep told Page Six on Thursday. “The family asks for privacy at this time.”
Twist, married Styles’ mother, Anne Cox, on June 2, 2013, with the then-One Direction singer serving as his best man.
Twist has two children, Mike and Amy, from a previous marriage and helped raise Styles, now 23, and his sister, Gemma, when they were teens. He was on hand to support Styles at his fateful “X Factor” audition in April 2010.
Twist maintained a Twitter presence and often interacted with Styles’ fans on social media. On May 21, he posted a selfie with wife Cox and James Corden on May 21.
