Justin Timberlake paid tribute to his late backup singer Nicole Hurst on Instagram Friday (August 6th).
The “Man of the Woods” singer wrote, “My heart is so heavy. We lost a beautiful soul this week. Nicole lit up every room she walked into. On and off the stage she was a constant source of joy and positivity.”
Although her exact cause of death was not revealed, a 2019 Instagram post from the 39-year-old performer revealed that the breast cancer she had been battling since 2015 had spread to her brain.
