Hey guys, you know that we’ve both been quiet on social media for a few weeks and it’s time to tell you why. There’s no easy way to say this but I’ve sadly been diagnosed with a Brain Tumour and I’m already undergoing treatment. We decided, after a lot of thought, that rather than hiding away and trying to keep it a secret, we would do one interview where we could lay out all the details and let everyone know the facts in our own way. We are all absolutely devastated but we are gonna fight this all the way. We don’t want your sadness, we just want love and positivity and together we will raise awareness of this terrible disease and look for all available treatment options. It’s gonna be a tough battle but with everyone’s love and support we are going to beat this. Tom and Kelsey xxx @ok_mag

It’s gonna be a tough battle but with everyone’s love and support we are going to beat this.”

Adding to the couple’s heartbreak is the fact that they are currently expecting their second child together. The Parkers welcomed their daughter Aurelia Rose into the world in June of 2019.

Shocked fans flocked to Parker’s Instagram post to express their love for the singer, leaving heartfelt messages of strength and support.

“Your fans will always be here for you,” wrote one stunned commenter. “Lots of love for you and your family, be strong.” Another noted: “Sending you guys love, wishes and lots of support through this tough time. We are all there behind you helping you along the way to get through this battle.”

Even celebrities offered their support for Parker, like One Direction’s Liam Payne who commented, “Sending you love in this really tough time.” Perez Hilton also wrote: “Sending you light and strength!”

Fans also took to Twitter to show their love and support for Parker.

Tom Parker told OK! Magazine UK that doctors diagnosed him after he suffered two seizures over the summer. The pop star, who split from The Wanted in 2014 to pursue a solo career, is 32 years old.
