Lisa Vanderpump Mourns
According to The Daily Mail, longtime Bravo star brother Mark Vanderpump was found dead on April 30 at his home in Gloucestershire, England.
He was 59 years old
The British newspaper mentioned above states that Mark worked as a DJ and that his death is probably due to an overdose of drugs.
At the present time it is unclear if this is the case overdose was accidental or deliberate.
This terrible news has just become public, but it explains why Lisa has not updated their social media page or made any recent claims.
In a statement posted to DailyMail.com, Vanderpump says the tragedy is a "shock to all of us", adding that she had contact with her sibling the day before his death.
Scroll down to Lisa's full statement:
That was a shock to all of us. My brother and I had joined the day before this tragedy and I was completely unprepared for it.
He was my only sibling and I am shocked and saddened by his demise.
I try to support his two young sons left behind and help them overcome this tragedy.
We thank you for your attention in this private and extremely difficult family time.
Lisa and Mark often spent vacation together, while the latter was often in his sister's Los Angeles restaurants Sur, Villa Blanca and PUMP.
Below for example the Mistress These are seen together in August 2014.
We do not want to speculate wildly and we certainly do not want to talk ill about the dead, but Mark's 22-year marriage ended in divorce.
He appeared in a kind of reality show titled "Gold Diggers and Proud" and lived a "very colorful life until everything went sadly wrong," says an anonymous insider The Daily Mail.
The same source says Mark has had his share of legal trouble, the details of which are not really known
Lisa Vanderpump has been a member of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills since 2010.
She also plays a supporting role, Vanderpump Rules, which features her West Hollywood restaurant Sur and his staff.  The 57-year-old is also famous for her philanthropy and founded the Vanderpump Dog Foundation to fight against the sale of dogs to meat.
None of Vanderpump's Bravo programs have already commented on this terrible development.
We will update this post with more information than news pauses.
For now, however, we simply send our condolences to Lisa Vanderpump and her relatives.
May Mark rest in peace.
