Madonna’s older brother, artist Anthony Ciccone, died at 66. On February 26, Ciccone’s brother-in-law, Joseph Henry, posted the devastating news on Instagram. Anthony Gerard Ciccone, my brother-in-law, died last night, Henry wrote.
“Anthony had a complicated personality; as true brothers sometimes do, we clashed. Still, I liked and knew him better than I cared to admit. But the hardship passes, and the family remains, reaching across the table. Brother Anthony, farewell for the time being.”
