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:

January has been a terrible month for Celine Dion.

Not only did the songstress lose her beloved husband René Angélil to cancer on January 14, but she also lost her brother Daniel Dion to the illness two days later.

According to insiders, while Dion did attend Daniel's memorial service on Saturday at ​Salon Charles Rajotte in Repentigny, Canada, she did NOT attend his funeral on January 25. The decision is understandable considering the icon just laid René to rest on Friday.

A source also went on to add that C.D. didn't want to put her three sons through more public mourning.

So heartbreaking. We imagine the star is emotionally exhausted and needs time to recover.

Take care of yourself, Celine.

The 50-year-old gospel singer hopes that one day the footage and memories recorded during this precious time — like Christmas and birthday celebrations — will serve the Grammy-nominated duo's 23-month-old daughter Indiana in the future. He told People:

"Without realizing I was doing it, God has allowed me to capture hours and hours of Joey and her life at home on the farm, raising Indiana and playing music. I can't help but believe that those clips will be an important part of keeping Joey's memory alive in Indy's heart."

Ultimately, Feek wants his documentation to mean something. If you ask us, it already does.
