Trina Braxton is mourning the loss of her ex-husband Gabe Solis after the Braxton Family Values star lost his battle with cancer, TMZ reports.

He was only 43.

Solis reportedly died in Texas surrounded by friends a family. His health was apparently kept under wraps as his death comes as a surprise to BFV fans, extended friends and family.

His last Instagram post on December 8, shows him having lunch with his family at a San Antonio Mexican cafe, looking healthy and happy. He also posted a huge glazed donut from the popular Texas shop Round Rock Donuts, writing “Yum!”

Fans are leaving condolence messages on his pictures.

Though Trina and Solis divorced in 2015, the couple appeared on an episode of Iyanla: Fix My Life, earlier this year, where they attempted to get to the root of their marital problems.

Trina posted an update on social media earlier on Friday, expressing how she needs “a huge hug and a bottle of wine” with no mention of Gabe specifically.

Our prayers are with the Braxton, Solis family at this time.
