The Wanted’s Tom Parker Dead at 33 Following Brain-Cancer Diagnosis 

Tom Parker, one-fifth of boy band the Wanted, died after previously announcing he had brain cancer in 2020 

Parker’s wife, Kelsey, announced on Instagram that he died “peacefully earlier today with all of his family by his side.” 

She revealed the news alongside a photo of him with their two children 

Our hearts are broken, Tom was the center of our world and we can’t imagine life without him 

Parker joined the Wanted in 2009 after a massive audition process; he’d previously auditioned for The X-Factor 

The group released its debut single, “All Time Low,” in 2010, which hit No. 1 in the U.K 

A self-titled album followed later that year, with a follow-up, Battleground, in 2011 

A single off that album, “Glad You Came,” also reached No. 1 in the U.K. and became a crossover hit in the U.S
