Brad Pitt Has Been Left Stunned By Some Horrible News
The deaths of former Paramount films CEO Brad Grey and Soundgarden front Chris Cornell have reportedly left their mutual friend Brad Pitt devastated.
A source has told E! News 'He is devastated and in shock. He is trying to process the loss of two great friends. This has hit him very hard,'
Cornell was found dead on Wednesday night, and his death has been ruled as a suicide, according to Reuters, while Grey died aged 59 last Sunday from cancer.
'With Brad Grey, Brad Pitt was one of the few people who knew he was sick. Grey was told he had a few weeks to live, but he didn't even get that long. He was gone way too soon,' the source went on to claim to E! News.
Cornell was discovered dead in the bathroom of his hotel room at the MGM Grand Detroit, having played with Soundgarden earlier that night.
The Wayne County Medical Examiner's Office has issued a statement indicating that 'The cause of death has been determined as hanging by suicide,' and noting that 'A full autopsy report has not yet been completed.'
Pitt and Cornell were longtime friends, who have spent some time together with their respective children of which Brad has six and Chris has been survived by three.
