Richard Buckley, noted fashion journalist and husband of Tom Ford, has died.
The 72-year-old “died of natural causes after a long illness” on Sunday night, Ford’s representatives have confirmed.
“It is with great sadness that Tom Ford announces the death of his beloved husband of 35 years, Richard Buckley,” the statement reads. “Richard passed away peacefully at their home in Los Angeles with Tom and their son Jack by his side.”
In 1989, Richard was diagnosed with throat cancer, which he then underwent surgery for. It is currently unclear whether his demise was related to his cancer or if he was cancer-free at the time of his death.
