Kelsey Parker Says She Held Tom's Hand As He Died

Kelsey Parker has revealed details of Tom Parker's final moments before he died.

Kelsey Parker has revealed she held Tom Parker's hand as he died.

The Wanted singer passed away aged 33 in March after he was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor in October 2020.

Tom had 30 rounds of chemotherapy and 30 radiotherapy sessions to treat his grade four glioblastoma and fought hard to join his bandmates on their UK tour in March.

After the conclusion of the tour, Tom requested to go to a hospice where he and Kelsey shared "romantic" final moments together.

The 32-year-old got into bed with Tom where they talked for two hours alone without any interruption. Kelsey said "there was so much love in that room" and described holding her husband's hand for the last time in an interview for The Sun on Sunday.

"It was me and him and it was just lovely," she recalls. “We had music playing in the room all day for him, it was his life and it was his passion.

“Live Forever by Oasis was playing. He was sedated and I was holding his hand."

His funeral took place at St Francis of Assisi church in Petts Wood, in south-east London last month.

Kelsey invited fans to watch the procession and she was seen bidding her husband a final goodbye before the hearse drove away. 

She paid tribute to Tom by wearing a gold blazer, in reference to the hit The Wanted song Gold Forever, paired with a gold hair clip with Tom's name.

Max paid tribute to his "brother" in a speech delivered at the service. The 33-year-old told attendees: “I could actually hear him saying, ‘It’s about time’, as he carried us for the last 12 years.

“Tom was always a brother, he made such an impact from the start. His love for music and striving for success outmatched all of us.”

The couple tied the knot in 2018 and welcomed their daughter, Aurelia Rose, in June 2019 as well as their son, Bodhi, in October 2020.
