Our heart really goes out to her right now.
We can't even begin to imagine how difficult this whole thing must be for she and her family.
In light of the news that her estranged father, Ricky Pempengco, was murdered last night in The Philipines, Charice has canceled the remainder of her South East Asian tour dates to return home and be with her family.
She says in a statement:
"I want to thank my fans from around the world for their support and love at this very difficult time for my family and I. We are all very sad about this terrible tragedy."
You and all of Ricky's loved ones are in our thoughts and prayers, gurl.
May he R.I.P.
