Geri Halliwell, one of the Spice Girls, passed away suddenly at the age of 54.
Geri Halliwell, a member of the Spice Girls, died suddenly at the age of 54.
Geri Halliwell’s brother, Max Halliwell, died last week in intensive care after collapsing at his home in Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire.
For a long time, he had been 54 years old.
The Spice Girls’ representatives tell People, “As you can imagine, this is a difficult time.”
“At this time, we’d appreciate it if you could respect the privacy of the family.”
Max, a former Mitsubishi Electric Living Environmental Systems UK communications manager, was found in his home and taken to Watford General Hospital.
According to a police statement, “Police were called at 9.40 a.m. on Wednesday November 17 to report concern for the welfare of a man at a residential property in Berkhamsted.”
“Officers and the East of England Ambulance Service were dispatched to the scene.”
The man was found and taken to the hospital, where he died on Tuesday, according to The Sun.
According to a Hertfordshire Constabulary spokeswoman, “his death is being treated as non-suspicious and will be referred to the coroner.”
Geri was traveling in the Middle East with her husband, Christian Horner, a Formula One team principal, when she learned of her brother’s condition.
In 2010, Max appeared on Piers Morgan’s Life Stories, where he talked about his and his sister’s relationship with their father Lawrence, who died of a heart attack in 1993.
He explained, “Perhaps because of my father’s focus on her potential.”
“I’d call her a daddy’s girl,” says the author, “because he obviously saw something early on.”
“I was just in my own little zone,” she explained in the BBC documentary Geri’s 1990s: My Drive to Freedom. “What really threw me was in the November period [when]my father died.”
“I was almost paralyzed by grief because I didn’t have the right tools to process it,” Geri said at the time.
“I have this theory, and I’m not sure if it’s true,” she explained, “but I believe success is based on three factors.”
“There are three kinds of preparation: opportunity, need, and need.
I believe my father’s death provided me with the need, that death energy.”
