NICOLE Scherzinger’s cousin has been brutally killed in a hit and run accident in Florida.
The X Factor judge, 41, revealed the devastating news on Instagram today as she urged witnesses to come forward.
Sharing pictures of her late family on social media, Nicole wrote: “Its like a nightmare, that we will never be able to wake from…
“It is with the heaviest of hearts that I say goodbye to my beautiful cousin, John Boy. This past Saturday October the 26th at 3am, his life was taken by a hit and run in Fort Lauderdale, FL.”
“Though I must take comfort in knowing that he is at peace with our Lord, I also know the agony our family is going through, knowing someone hit him head on and just left him there to die.”
She continued: “My sweet cousin, I love you so much. This world was a better place with you and your kind, creative heart in it. We will never forget you and will carry you with us forever.
“My family and I are pleading for any information which could help support the investigation into the tragic death of this incredible man.
“I ask that whoever did this, has the dignity and strength to come forward.
“Our God is a loving and forgiving God, but I pray for justice for John Boy and closure for my family.”
