There has been some sad news that has come in about a 1950s Hollywood heartthrob who has passed away.
Tab Hunter died Sunday, July 8, in Santa Barbara from a blot clot that caused a cardiac arrest, according to "Hollywood Reporter." He was 86 years old. He passed away three days from his 87th birthday.
Hunter is known for his role as Joe Hardy in the "Damn Yankees!" movie and also made a name for himself in the music industry. According to his partner, Allan Glaser, of 30 years, Hunter's death was "unexpected and sudden."
On Hunter's Facebook page, his representatives wrote a message announcing his death:
"SAD NEWS: Tab passed away tonight three days shy of his 87th birthday. Please honor his memory by saying a prayer on his behalf. He would have liked that."
In the latter half of the 1950s, Hunter was in multiple movies such as, "Battle Cry," "The Burning Hills," "Lafayette Escadrille," and "The Pleasure of His Company." He also became a successful singer with his hit song "Young Love" in 1957.
Several years ago, Hunter had a heart attack that encouraged him to say, "I've been there, done that, thank you very much, next case," continued on saying that "every day's a thank you day."
