Singer Justin Bieber was deeply saddened to hear that his youngest fan, the 6-year-old Mrs. Bieber passed away on Wednesday. The “Girlfriend” interpreter wrote on his Twitter account that Avalanna’s death was the worst news he received, according to Us Weekly.
Justin Bieber has grown very close to his 6-year-old fan, Avalanna Routh. In fact, he was so impressed by the little girl’s story that he agreed to take part in a staged wedding ceremony last year; thus becoming Mrs. Bieber. Given the strong friendship between Bieber and Mrs. Bieber, the interpreter was very saddened to hear that the girl passed away on Wednesday at the age of 6.
Avalanna Routh was diagnosed with a rare teratoid rhabdoid tumor when she was only 18 months old and she went through various treatments all her life. Dr. Charles Robert of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute told the press that the girl initially responded very well to the medical treatment. Unfortunately, her condition worsened in the past two years because the treatment became ineffective and Avalanna eventually passed away on Wednesday. Robert further added that Routh was a very courageous girl despite her young age and that she helped raise awareness about the atypical teratoid rhabdoid tumors by making her story public. In addition, Mrs. Bieber stated on various occasions that further research needs to be performed in this medical domain.
Justin Bieber took to Twitter to express his sympathy for Avalanna’s family. He told his followers that he received the worst news in his life and explained that “one of the greatest spirits” he had ever known was gone. The artist asked his followers to pray for Avalanna and for her saddened family, in the end. An hour later, he posted another message on his Twitter account reminding everyone that it is important to respect the privacy of Avalanna’s family.
