Tawny Kitaen's brother believes she 'died of a broken heart' after actress' beloved father lost cancer battle last month
TAWNY Kitaen's brother believes the actress "died of a broken heart" after her beloved father died of cancer last month.
The Bachelor Party died over the weekend at the age of 59.
According to TMZ, Tawny's brother Jordan told the outlet police told the family nothing at the scene suggested that "drugs, pills or alcohol were a factor in her death."
It also did not appear that she took her own life, officials confirmed.
Jordan relayed to the outlet he thinks their father's recent death from skin cancer was just too much for Tawny.
When she died, his funeral was just a few days away, and the two had an "uncanny connection," Jordan told TMZ.
Jordan also shared with TMZ he had spoken to Tawny the night before she died on Thursday.
He said she was excited and in good spirits about spending Mother's Day with her children.
Although Tawny had a history of substance abuse and had been previously arrested for drug possession and DUI, Jordan believes she was "in a good place" before she died.
The cause of Tawny's death is still not known.
The funeral for her father was Monday in San Diego, but according to TMZ Tawny's family has not yet made burial arrangements for her.
Tawny had revealed she was writing a memoir in her final interview just weeks before the tragic actress' sudden death at 59 years old.
Before her unexpected death last week, the actress told the Behind The Velvet Rope with David Yontef podcast: "So I'm in the middle of writing a book right now, because if I don't write my life story, somebody else is going to, and they're going to do it off of sound clips, that aren't true and aren't real about me.
"So it's really, really important that I get my book out. Yeah. I mean, even if I only sell two copies, you know."
Tawny's marriage to Whitesnake's lead singer, David Coverdale, ended after just two years.
Tawny had two daughters, Wynter and Raine, with her second husband, baseball star Chuck Finley, who she was married to from 1997-2002.
