Jaclyn Hill described the death of her late ex-husband Jon Hill and his “grieving process” as the “sadest and weirdest thing” considering they had been divorced for five years.
“I’m at the point in my grieving process where I just have to trust her and see what happens each day,” the YouTube star shared in an Instagram Story video on Thursday.
“Right now, I’m kind of done sharing this with millions of people, and I just need some privacy about it.”
Jaclyn, who rose to fame for her makeup tutorials on the video platform, said that although they haven’t had a romantic relationship in years, she and the drummer have remained close.
“We always kept in touch and talked. It’s just the saddest and weirdest thing,” she said.
“Ugh, that’s so you guys,” she added, choking. “Trying to walk through it publicly makes it so much harder for me.”
Jaclyn, 32, said last week that Jon’s surviving family had asked her to announce that Jon had died on August 10 at age 33.
“We are all devastated by the sudden tragedy,” she concluded her statement. “The Hill family are asking for privacy during this openly difficult time.”
While the circumstances surrounding Jon’s death remain a mystery, Page Six reported that he was pronounced dead on a sidewalk. The Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner’s Department also told us that Jon’s cause of death has been deferred pending further testing. The results of the autopsy will take “months”.
Jon’s body was returned to the family, according to his file.
The Jaclyn Hill Cosmetics founder and Jon, who struggle with drug addiction, tied the knot in 2009 but announced in 2018 that they would be going their separate ways.
