“Been trying to figure out what to say all day… This morning I woke up to terrible news. My good friend Chris Carney has passed away. This picture is a perfect example of the love he shared with Tiff and how much fun he was to be around. I’ve been to many weddings but this is by far the most memorable because the way they looked into each other’s eyes and the love they had for one another. There were tons of laughs and tons of tears and I’ll never forget the way he looked at her. It doesn’t seem real and I’m still in shock.. Still speechless. I don’t know how to put into words how heartbroken I am for Tiffany and their two baby boys. You’re already missed Chris.. And Tiffany I love you so much.. I’m so unbelievably sorry… There are still no words. For those who would like to help the family at this time you can help support @tiffthornton and her precious babies KJ and Bentley by donating at https://gofund.me/4gdfn773?pc=tw_cr_n #RIPChrisCarney #prayfortiffany ?” she captioned the Instagram post.
Wilmer Valderrama is the godfather of Tiffany Thornton and Chris Carney’s three-year-old son. He has yet to post anything about the tragedy on social media.
Hopefully having good friends like Demi Lovato and Wilmer Valderrama in her corner will help Tiffany Thornton through these next painful days and weeks. She has a long road ahead as a newly-single mom of two young boys.
