Harry Styles' stepfather, Robin Twist has passed away, aged 57-years-old. 

A source close to Harry confirmed the news to the Daily Mail. 

Anne and Robin Twist

"Harry's stepfather, Robin Twist, sadly passed away this week after a long battle with cancer. The family asks for privacy at this time."

Twist married Harry's mother, Anne, in 2013 in a romantic ceremony in Cheshire, with Harry serving as the best man at the event. 

Harry was known to be close to Robin. The death comes just weeks after Robin's fourth wedding anniversary to Anne. 

He was known to be very close to Harry. He and Anne scheduled their wedding during a time Harry could get a break from touring with One Direction. 

Harry confirmed they were close in his 2013 biography, Harry Styles: Every Piece of Me. He event went as far as saying he looked at him as a father figure.

Harry Styles is Cute

Members of the family took to social media to express their sadness at Robin's death. 

It must have come as a huge shock to the family. 

Even Robin's ex-wife, Erica Jane Morgan took to Facebook to change her profile picture to one of her posing with her ex-husband. 

In the comments, friends paid their respects. 

“So sorry to hear your sad news xxx,” one friend writes, while another says, “Oh no, so sorry for your loss Jane xxx.”

Robin replied, “Thank you,” alongside a broken heart emoji. 

Sheepish Harry Styles

Robin's daughter, Amy Twist, also took to Facebook to change her picture to a happier one of herself with her father. 

Like Erica's post, it was filled with comments from those closest to her to pay their respects to her father. 

Twist leaves behind two children from his marriage to Erica. 

We would like to extend our condolences to the family during this difficult time.
