"The Masked Singer" judge Nicole Scherzinger is mourning the loss of her cousin after he was killed in a hit-and-run accident.
Scherzinger took to Instagram on Wednesday to explain the heartbreaking situation.
"It’s like a nightmare, that we will never be able to wake from...It is with the heaviest of hearts that I say goodbye to my beautiful cousin, John Boy. This past Saturday October the 26th at 3am, his life was taken by a hit and run in Fort Lauderdale, FL."
"Though I must take comfort in knowing that he is at peace with our Lord, I also know the agony our family is going through, knowing someone hit him head on and just left him there to die."
"My sweet cousin, I love you so much. This world was a better place with you and your kind, creative heart in it. We will never forget you and will carry you with us forever."
