2020 continues to be a trying year for many, including former Real Housewives Of Atlanta star and entrepreneur Peter Thomas. The former reality star revealed that his father has just passed away in a somber Instagram post.

“This have to be the saddest day of my life,” wrote Thomas beneath a photo of himself lying in bed. “I don’t know where to begin, I don’t know what to do, I am completely dead inside, my daddy is no longer on this side. God please give me strength, my heart is broken.”

The death of Thomas’s father comes just months after the Bar One owner was diagnosed with COVID-19. In an Instagram video, he complained of textbook symptoms like difficulty breathing, chest pain and fatigue. Thankfully, he was able to make a full recovery and is back to running the ship at his new location, Bar One Miami.

We send Thomas and his family our condolences for their loss.
