The Richards/Hilton family has suffered a big loss.
In fact, brother-in-law Rick Hilton led the family tributes online by taking to Instagram to confirm the businessman’s untimely passing. However, Mr. Hilton wasn’t the only member of the famous family to pay their respects to Kim’s former flame.
Paris Hilton followed in her father’s footsteps and posted a sweet collage for her late Uncle on the picture sharing site. She shared:
Heartbroken to hear the sad news of my Uncle @MontyBrinson’s passing after his long brave battle with cancer. He was such an incredible man with such a huge heart. He was so insightful & positive about life, even with all he was going through. He always had a smile on his face & lit up the room with his positive energy & fun personality. He will be truly missed. ├░┼╕╦£┬ó My thoughts & prayers are with @BrookeWiederhorn @KimRichards11 & his family. ├░┼╕Γäó┬Å├░┼╕┬Å┬╗ #RIPMontyBrinsonA photo posted by Paris Hilton (@parishilton) on Jan 25, 2016 at 6:50am PST
Sister Nicky Hilton has since liked this touching note. Sniff!
Despite the fact that Monty and Kim divorced back in 1988, the twosome remained close friends which explains why so many of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star’s loved ones are memorializing Monty on IG and Twitter. We can only imagine the heartbreak Miz Richards is currently going through.

Yesterday we lost an amazing man. My father fought till the very end and never gave up. He was surrounded by everyone he loved and went peacefully. Today is bittersweet knowing that he is at peace and doesn’t have to fight this horrible disease anymore. Thank you everyone for your kind words. I know he is looking down and checking his Instagram ├░┼╕╦£┼á. I love you SO much Dad. Thank you for being the best father you could be to me and my sisters. I will miss everything about you. You always called me your angel but now you are my guardian angel. Until we meet again…├░┼╕ΓÇÿ┬╝├░┼╕┬Å┬╝├ó┬¥┬ñ├»┬╕┬ÅA photo posted by @brookewiederhorn on Jan 25, 2016 at 10:01am PST
Our thoughts are with Monty’s loved ones during this very sad time!
