Harry Styles' Stepfather Has Died

June 22, 2017

Harry Styles' stepfather, Robin Twist, has died after a long battle with cancer.

Robin Twist passed away earlier this week, according to a statement from Harry's management team. Twist was 57 years old.

Twist married Harry's mother in 2013. In fact, Harry was the best man for the wedding.

Twist even helped raise Harry from a young age. Robin was even backstage when Harry originally auditioned for the X Factor with One Direction. 

Harry's mom, Anne Twist, posted on Instagram about the couple's anniversary earlier this month:

Thank you for all the anniversary wishes. ❤️
