After his tragic death yesterday, Philip Seymour Hoffman has been receiving a huge out-pour of tributes from various people, both from the entertainment industry and from the fans who simply adored him. His family has finally released a statement about Phil’s untimely death.
His family consists of costume designer Mimi O’Donnell, with whom he shared a relationship of15 years, and their three children – Cooper (10), Tallulah (7) and Willa (5). Their statement, which was released through Hoffman’s publicist, reads as follows:
“We are devastated by the loss of our beloved Phil and appreciate the outpouring of love and support we have received from everyone. This is a tragic and sudden loss and we ask that you respect our privacy during this time of grieving. Please keep Phil in your thoughts and prayers.”
O’Donnell and Hoffman were in a long-term relationship, but reportedly split up merely months before his death. At the time of his death, Hoffman was living in a rented apartment in Pickwick House in the West Village, while Mimi lived just three blocks away with their children. Hoffman was found dead in his apartment bathroom after he failed to fetch the children from their mother’s apartment on Sunday morning.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Philip Seymour Hoffman’s family, friends and his wide multitude of passionate fans all around the world.
