The news has been confirmed...

Frank Ocean's brother Ryan Breaux has died.

The two were extremely close, Ryan Breaux's social media accounts becoming a fixture of Frank Ocean fandom.

A few hours ago speculation swept through fans, with a suggestion that the American has died.

Sadly, this has now been confirmed by multiple sources - no word yet on cause of death, and Frank Ocean has not commented officially.

Enormously sad news. Our thoughts are with Frank Ocean and his family.
