It has been a difficult few weeks for Jimmy Barnes, who just lost his sister to cancer.
Earlier this week, the iconic Australian singer turned to social media to announce the tragic deaths of his mother-in-law and a “close friend.”
First, Barnes tweeted a homage to his wife’s mother, Kusumphorn Visuthipol.
He accompanied a picture of her as a child with the words, “Our families’ lives were all made richer because of this beautiful woman.”

Jane’s mother, Kusumphorn, had an extraordinary life, and I was fortunate enough to be a part of it.
“You’ll be missed every minute of every day, and I mean it. We send our condolences to the Yai family at this time.
Due to a “very bad illness” in his family, Barnes had to postpone gigs last week.
As he said in a message to his followers, “I was really looking forward to performing these shows now that I’ve bounced back from COVID, but Jane, myself, and our kids now need to be together somewhere over the next days as we all bid an unexpected farewell to someone we love. ”
Sincerely sorry to those who have held tickets for so long and are upset by the cancellation of these events.” Of course, they’ll get their money back.
In times like these, the family must always come first. This choice was not made lightly. We think the public will understand this.
On Monday, Barnes went to Twitter to announce the death of a close friend and a music executive.
“We lost our great buddy Warren Costello in a week when you thought nothing else could shatter your heart,” he said with a picture.
The recordings we’ve made together have transformed my life. He was Mushroom Group’s other lifeblood, and he stood at my side through good times and bad. RIP, my buddy. I miss you.
After a recent illness, Liberation Records co-founder Michael Gudinski died of his ailment.
Mushroom Group reported his death, saying he had made a significant contribution to the Australian entertainment sector.
Following the loss of one of Costello’s brothers earlier this month, his mother-in-law has also passed away.
The 66-year-old tweeted on social media, “Thank you for all your words of sorrow for the demise of my darling sister Linda.”
“It’s been a difficult and stressful week.” “Your help is much appreciated,” says the author.
