Tiffany Thornton Breaks Her Silence After Husband Chris Carney’s Death, Demi Lovato Offers Her Condolences
Just 24 hours after the 35-year-old father and husband died in a tragic car accident, his wife shared a touching photo of he and their two children — Kenneth James, 3, and Bentley Cash, 21 months. “My life. My love. My angel,” she captioned the sweet picture, in which a shirtless Carney is seen holding the couple’s two adorable sons in his arms.
Carney, former member of rock band The Prom Kings, and Thornton wed in 2011. Demi Lovato, who co-starred with Thornton on Sonny With a Chance for two years, took to Instagram Friday night (Dec. 4, 2015) with her condolences.
“Been trying to figure out what to say all day… This morning I woke up to terrible news. My good friend Chris Carney has passed away. This picture is a perfect example of the love he shared with Tiff and how much fun he was to be around. I’ve been to many weddings but this is by far the most memorable because the way they looked into each other’s eyes and the love they had for one another. There were tons of laughs and tons of tears and I’ll never forget the way he looked at her,” she wrote, alongside a shot from the couple’s wedding.
“It doesn’t seem real and I’m still in shock.. Still speechless. I don’t know how to put into words how heartbroken I am for Tiffany and their two baby boys,” Demi added. “You’re already missed Chris.. And Tiffany I love you so much.. I’m so unbelievably sorry… There are still no words,” Lovato wrote, ending her heartfelt message.
According to The Arkansas Times, Carney and his friend Ezekiel Blanton were both killed in a single car accident Friday around 1:40 a.m. The vehicle, driven by Ezekiel, reportedly slammed into a tree going around a bend.
