Geri Halliwell’s older brother Max died suddenly just weeks ago. The Spice Girls hitmaker’s sibling was taken to Watford General Hospital after collapsing at his Hertfordshire home.
Geri is utterly broken by it
Max died a week later on November 23 at the age of 54.
His cause of death remains to be disclosed, although “it is being treated as non-suspicious and will be referred to the coroner”.
The wife of Christian Horner, 48, is said to be “utterly broken” by what has happened, according to The Sun at the time.
The 49-year-old is said to have endured a “terribly traumatic time” after her brother was hospitalised.
The singer “barely knows what to say or think”, an insider told the publication.
The source said: “This is the most awful, devastating, heartbreaking news and Geri is utterly broken by it.
“It has been a terribly traumatic time since the moment she heard Max had been taken to hospital, and the worst outcome which everybody close to the family hoped might not be.”
They went on: “They are all rallying together but she barely knows what to say or think just now – she loved him dearly.”
A representative for Geri also said in a statement: “As you can imagine, this is a difficult time and we would ask that you respect the family privacy at this time.”
A spokeswoman for Hertfordshire Constabulary confirmed: “Police were called at 9:40am on Wednesday 17 November to report the concern for welfare of a man at a residential property in Berkhamsted.”
According to his profile on LinkedIn, Max was working part-time as the Vice Chairman for Heat Pump Association.
He and Geri are thought to have been close, with him reportedly whisking her away to Paris when she abruptly left the girl band.

It comes as Christian – who Geri wed back in 2015 – gears up for the end of the Formula One season today.
The couple are parents to four year old Montague.
Geri is also mother to Bluebell, 15, with ex, screenwriter Sacha Gervasi, and step-mum to Christian’s daughter, Olivia, from a previous relationship.
The Red Bull boss is behind driver Max Verstappen, as he goes head to head with Lewis Hamilton for the championship in the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
The F1 drivers are locked together on 369.5 points.
It is only the second time this has happened since Formula One’s first season in 1950.
If Max triumphs, it would end Mercedes’ seven-year run of producing the title-winning car.
