Anthony Ciccone, the elder brother of the artist Madonna, went dead at the age of 66. Ciccone’s brother-in-law Joseph Henry posted the heartbreaking information on Instagram on February 26. My brother-in-law Anthony Gerard Ciccone passed away last night, Henry wrote. “As true brothers can, Anthony had a complex personality, and we occasionally disagreed. Even so, I was closer to admitting how much I liked and knew him. The family is still there, reaching across the table when the hardship passes. Brother Anthony, I’ll see you later.
The cause of Ciccone’s passing is not yet known. Ciccone, however, did not have a simple existence due to his history of drug misuse issues and his struggle with homelessness, as Henry’s remark suggests. Back in 2011, Ciccone chastised his well-known sister for failing to save him from a protracted period of homelessness. According to Ciccone’s statement to the Daily Mail, “Madonna doesn’t give a s**t if I’m dead or alive.”She lives in a different universe. Both she and I have never loved each other. We’ve never been in a romantic relationship. Additionally, Ciccone mocked his father by declaring that he would be “glad if I died of hypothermia and so he would not have to worry about it anymore.”
The untimely passing of Ciccone has not yet been addressed by Madonna.
However, it’s likely that Madonna and her brother didn’t get along.
Anthony Ciccone’s life was significantly dissimilar from Madonna’s, a singer who achieved global fame and built a $850 million fortune.
Ciccone, however, struggled in recent years to keep his sobriety and to obtain long-term housing.
It’s unclear when Ciccone’s problems initially appeared, but it seems like they got worse when he was working for his father’s winery. According to The Daily Mail, Ciccone’s family fired him when they learned he had been stealing wine from the company’s vats. In an interview with The Michigan Messenger a year later, Ciccone discussed the city’s homelessness crisis and made similarly cruel comments about his family.
According to Ciccone, who was quoted by The Hollywood Reporter, “My family basically turned their back on me while I was having a rough time.” Do you honestly believe that I haven’t discussed the issue of why my sister is a multi-billionaire while I am a street person a thousand times?
Despite Ciccone’s earlier comments, his family tried to enroll him in a rehabilitation center in 2017, according to the Daily Mail. It’s unclear if Ciccone was in a better place when he passed away or if this treatment program was effective. We certainly hope so.
