The sudden death of 69-year-old actor Alan Thicke took the world by surprise Tuesday afternoon. Now, the Growing Pains star’s son, Robin Thicke, and his ex-wife, Paula Patton, have broken their silence.
On Tuesday night, the “Blurred Lines” singer posted a heartfelt message about his dad’s untimely death, saying:
My Father passed away today. He was the best man I ever knew. The best friend I ever had. Let’s all rejoice and celebrate the joy he brought to every room he was in. We love you Alan Thicke. Thank you for your love. Love, your grateful son.
News broke Tuesday about the sudden and unfortunate death of the legendary actor. He reportedly suffered a heart attack while playing hockey with his 19-year-old son, Carter, at Pickwick Gardens ice skating rink in Burbank, something they did together often, as Alan was a huge ice hockey fan.
Patton also shared some kind words in tribute to her late former father-in-law on her IG page.
Alan’s ex-wife, singer and actress Gloria Loring, confirmed his death in a statement on Facebook which said:
“It is a shock. We were all just together for Thanksgiving. He was talented, funny and deeply devoted to his family. Rest In Peace, dear one.”
The Real Reason Jason Derulo Is Out Here Teaching Zumba Class
Jason Derulo popped up at an L.A. Zumba class Tuesday night but he wasn’t there to take the class … he was there to teach it.
When @zumba and @jasonderulo hook up at the @thebeatboxla it’s an unforgettable night!! #zumba #zumbafitness #jasonderulo #fitness #fitnessmotivation #fitnessjourney #dance #fun #lovethis #instsadaily #instagood #video #losangeles #culvercity #followme #follow #nightlife #music #dj #amazing #unforgettable #venue #eventspace #bookthebox #today #picoftheday #like #likes #now
According to Forbes, Derulo has partnered with Zumba, who will be offering exclusive classes featuring choreography to his hit song “Tip-Toe” featuring French Montana.
To kick things off the 28-year-old showed up unannounced at Beat Box Studio LA to teach a few routines, and as you could imagine everyone was mad hype.
Perez Hilton and Youtube Fitness star Caleb Mitchell were amongst the 80 folks taking the class, which also included instructors and members of the University of Southern California dance team.
“What I love most about Zumba is that they make exercising fun and make it accessible to everyone all over the world. It’s a movement,” Derulo said. “They get great global rhythms and pair it with a routine everyone can do that will give you a total body workout that feels more like party than exercise. I admire that because you don’t typically associate dancing with working out and that’s the beauty of it.”
No word on if Derulo will be popping up at more classes, but if he does now you won’t be surprised.
