Struggling After A Tough Loss
When asked about the incident, Matt, 44, told Page Six, “The loss of my wife’s father due to COVID-19 has been absolutely devastating to her and our entire family. We have all been struggling with this loss and have been going through a tough time.” He continued, “We have never been more in love and connected from this tragedy. We ask everyone to respect our privacy.”
