A long fight with a brain tumor led to the death of The Wanted’s first member, Tom Parker, on Wednesday, after he died. In 2003, he was 33.
A post by Parker’s wife on Instagram says he “peacefully” left early this morning. In 2020, he was told that he had a brain tumor that could not be removed, so he died.
“With the hardest of hearts,” she said that Tom’s death has been confirmed by the police. One of us said, “Our hearts are broken.” To us, Tom’s smile and energy are contagious. We can’t imagine our lives without him in them.
As a show of gratitude, we ask that we all work together to keep Tom’s light shining brightly for his beautiful kids.
Afterward, he learned to play the guitar as a child and tried out for The X Factor. He didn’t make it past the first round of the competition.
When he started the band with Max George, Siva Kaneswaran, Jay McGuiness, and Nathan Sykes in 2009, they had a lot of success. The band had 10 UK top 10 singles, three UK top 10 albums, and sold 10 million records all over the world.
This is how it worked: In 2014, the band broke up. He went on to appear on Celebrity MasterChef and play Danny Zuko on a tour of Grease in the UK.
Seven years after they broke up, The Wanted rebanded for a charity concert at the Royal Albert Hall last year. They were there in support of him.
Who is Parker’s Wife?
Parker’s wife Kelsey Hardwick wrote on Instagram: “Our hearts are devastated, Tom was the center of our universe, and we can’t picture living without his contagious grin and lively presence.”
Please join us in ensuring that Tom’s light continues to shine for his lovely children. We are extremely grateful for the outpouring of love and support. To everyone who helped him along the way, thank you very much. He battled valiantly till the very end. “I’ll always be proud of you,” he said.

Parker “went away quietly at midday” surrounded by his family and band colleagues, according to the famed British band.
To Kelsey and Aurelia and Bodhi, “Tom was a fantastic husband, father, and grandfather,” the band stated on Instagram. He was our brother, and the grief and pain we feel can’t be expressed in words.” In our hearts, always and forever.
When Parker was diagnosed in October 2020 with stage 4 glioblastoma, he stated it arose as a result of two epileptic convulsions.
Tom Parker suffered from a Brain Tumor
Glioblastoma is aggressive cancer that is difficult to cure and typically fatal. John McCain, a senator, was diagnosed with glioblastoma in 2017, a year before his death.
“Awful,” Parker says. To assist spread the news about this dreadful illness and finding all available remedies, we don’t want your agony. “With everyone’s love and support, we will win,” the individual adds. “We’ll fight hard, but we’ll win.”
A brain tumor had decreased and Parker was responding well to therapy in January 2021. His wife informed us last month that he was “progressing both physically and mentally.” So she said.
Your love and support have sparked a flame within him, she wrote in February.
Parker’s death surprised and grieved people worldwide. “What a wonderful guy.” Ed Sheeran commented on Instagram.
Hearing the news devastated Liam Payne’s heart.
Payne stated on Instagram he would always remember his pal. “I’m offering my sincere condolences to his family and “The Wanted” buddies,” I wrote next.
They are part of “The Wanted,” a band that has sold over 12 million albums worldwide and has over six million monthly Spotify subscribers, according to the group. Among their numerous successes are “Glad You Came” and “All Time Low.”
