Elsewhere, Jae broke hearts as he paid tribute to his beloved mother on his Instagram page.
‘I’ve always been scared of 2 things in life. Losing my mum and death in general,’ he began.
‘The thought of these two things would send me so far into a downward spiral, I hated it … so what did I do? I ignored it.’
‘After my dad passed away when I was younger, I chose from that day forward to stay away from death.. no funerals, no talking about it… nothing.
‘After the last week, I can say with confidence that I am no longer scared anymore. I can say with certainty I truly witnessed something so magical, so out of this world… you had to be there to believe it.
‘As I lay with my sister, either side of my mum… we watched as she peacefully took her last breath. I watched as the lights began to flicker in the room, the curtains blew open and I felt truly that she was being gently taken away by my dad, my grandma and my grandpa . I have never felt so sad yet so at peace and so happy with that perfect moment.
‘My mum was my best friend, my hype woman, my everything and she meant everything to me. Words cannot even begin to describe how empty my heart feels in one sense and yet, somehow it is filled with something else – a true belief that my mum is somewhere beautiful… and that to me, means everything.
Many of the couple’s celebrity friends were quick to offer their condolences.
‘I’m so so sorry guys. sending you guys so much love,’ wrote influencer Chloe Szepanoski and Lana Wilkinson added: ‘Sending love to you and your family’.
