Kim Richards is a mess right now.
On Sunday, Kim lost her beloved ex-husband Monty Brinson and the father of her daughter Brooke Brinson Wiederhorn to cancer. The businessman was just 58-years-old.

Considering Monty remained very close Richards after their divorce, the passing has been quite difficult for her to handle. M.B. even lived with the reality star for a period of time following his diagnosis.
In light of the tragedy, Kim's loved ones are especially concerned she'll relapse. After K.R.'s erratic 2015, the fears aren't unfounded.
"Everyone's worried about Kim in the same way they're always kind of worried about her. No one wants to see Kim's health take a step backwards because of grief."
Yikes. We hope the blonde is able to lean on her loved ones for support instead of hitting up her old vices.
As for Brinson's passing, sources say it was expected but obviously still upsetting for his family:
"Monty had actually been in hospice the past few weeks. It's sad, but he had been at Stage 4 for a very long time. In a way, he beat the odds surviving as long as he did."
How heartbreaking. At least Monty's family was at his side when he died.

Aw. It's clear Mr. Brinson was loved by all.
Stay strong, Kim!
