We’re sad to report that Kim Richards‘ ex husband Monty Brinson has died.
On Sunday, it was revealed that the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills alum’s first husband lost his battle with cancer at 58-years-old. How tragic!
In fact, it was Monty’s former brother-in-law Rick Hilton that first announced the news on Instagram.

How sweet! In case you forgot, Kim and her former flame were very close despite divorcing back in 1988 and even lived together amid his failing health.
The twosome have a daughter Brooke together. To make matters worse, the reality TV star recently took to Twitter to thank her fans for all their support towards Monty. She posted:

Sniff! We can only imagine how hard this whole experience is for Miz Richards, especially since Monty was a big defender of hers during her most recent rehab stints and arrests.
Our thoughts are with all of Monty’s loved ones during this particularly sad time!
