Anthony Ciccone, the older brother of pop icon Madonna, has passed away at the age of 66. The infamous Ciccone reportedly struggled with alcoholism and was homeless at one point. However, Madonna is now mourning his passing in an emotional tribute on social media.
The “Frozen On Fire” singer took a moment to reflect on the special times she had with her late brother Anthony Ciccone. Maddona took to her Instagram Story to share a vintage photo of herself and Ciccone surrounded by friends. She thanked him for the advice he had given her, which included recommendations on different religions, his favorite novelists, and music.
“Thank you for blowing my mind as a young girl and introducing me to Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, Buddhism, Taoism, Charles Bukowski, Richard Brautigan, Jack Kerouac, Expansive Thinking Outside the Box. You planted many important seeds ……… . . ❤️”
The “Hung Up” crooner and her eldest sibling seemed to be grinning at the busy table with all of their friends in the picture. Madonna was wearing a leopard shawl over her shoulders and had her arm around a man wearing a black leather jacket. The singer’s sibling, on the other hand, was attractive, wearing all-black clothing, and had his face turned away from the camera.
Before the “Like A Virgin” singer posted her heartfelt remembrance on social media, her brother-in-law, Joe Henry, announced the tragic death of Ciccone on Sunday. Madonna and other family members were still actively attempting to assist him and take care of him, even if he had previously rejected their assistance. In the end, they did everything they could to help him.
