Trina Braxton Issues Statement Following Death Of Ex-Husband Gabe Solis

Published: Saturday 22nd Dec 2018 by Sam

Trina Braxton and family are mourning the death of her ex-husband Gabe Solis.

As reported, the 43-year-old passed away in his home state of Texas after privately battling cancer.

The news took many by surprise – including family and friends, some of whom found out about his passing via online reports.

Now, in a heartfelt statement, Braxton tributes Solis and apologizes about how some discovered the news; news she says was leaked prematurely.

Her words below…

Via Trina Braxton:

On December 20, 2018, a chapter permanently closed for my sons and I. For over 16 years, Gabe Solis was an essential part of our lives. Like all families, there are good and bad moments that are endured, but those moments, good or bad still made us who we are in the present. Unfortunately, someone leaked the story before we could make everyone aware of his passing, and I apologize to those friends and family members for finding out through social outlets. I also apologize directly to the Solis Family. I do humbly ask for your prayers for our families, but my greatest request is that when you are posting comments, remember Gabe’s passing is a loss for our family. He was a father to my boys, a son, brother, and friend to many and I would appreciate privacy and respect as we grieve his unexpected departure. @gabe_solis1234 I miss you, my dear friend.

Trina and Gabe were married from 2003 to 2015, with much of their relationship wins and woes broadcast on WE tv‘s ‘Braxton Family Values.’

They never had children together, however – per Braxton’s message – he served as a father-figure to her two sons from a previous union.

The pair also remained friends after dissolving their marriage.


So sad. Our thoughts and prayers are with Gabe’s family.

Your thoughts?

    She should have just made an announcement on Twitter Or Instagram immediately following Gabe’s death. This was going to be discussed among his family and friends, and there was no way to keep this from the public-at-large due to Gabe being known to the public through his appearances on Braxton Family Values during the height of popularity of the show.

    At any rate, I am glad she made this statement, and he appeared to be a pretty good father to her sons.

      Older people like to grieve naturally rather than rushing to social media to vent like Ariana Grande the second something happens. I think her reaction is natural for someone her age and more genuine than someone fake-grieving on social media for attention (Ariana).

      My condolences to the Solis and Braxton family.
