'X-Factor' alum Tom Mann's fiancee dies suddenly on wedding day
Los Angeles: 'X-Factor' alum Tom Mann confirmed that his fiancé, Dani Hampson, may have died on their wedding day. The 28-year-old songwriter said, "I can't believe I write these words, but my dear Dani, my best friend, my everything, the love of my life passed away early Saturday morning, June 18 Gone."
"What was supposed to be the happiest day of our lives ended in irreversible heartbreak," the report said.
Tom Mann continued, "We never made it to change or got to say our vows or dance our first dance, but I know you were my whole world and the Best Thing that ever happened to me, Daniel. I'll wear this ring I should have always worn as a sign of your unconditional love."
Hampson, 34, had no apparent health problems and the cause of his death has not been publicly disclosed.
Publicist and Mann, who were forced to postpone their September 2020 wedding due to the coronavirus pandemic, welcomed Bowie in October 2021.
Reportedly, the former Stereo Kicks member wrote in his post that while he was completely broken by the loss of Hampson, he could use any force he could to be there for the infant.
Tom Mann wrote, "I won't be a mark on the parents that you have already become, but I promise I will do everything I can to raise Bowie the way we always wanted to."
"I promise you that he will know how wonderful his mother was. I promise to make you so proud."
He continued, "My dear Dani, the brightest light in any room, my world is nothing but darkness without you. I will miss you forever."
Mann originally auditioned for The X-Factor in 2013 before returning the following year. He and four other contestants were put in a boy band at the UK talent show and eventually finished fifth.
After Stereo Kicks disbanded in July 2015, Mann continued music as a solo artist and worked as a songwriter and producer for artists including Rita Ora and Louise Capaldi.
Hampson often shared her support for her fiancé's career on social media.
