Sharon Stone’s Brother Patrick Dies Suddenly at 57

Sharon Stone’s brother has died at the age of 57, causing more heartbreak for the actress.

It’s believed that Patrick died suddenly over the weekend, early on Sunday morning in Pennsylvania.

The 64-year-old Basic Instinct star’s sibling passed away from a heart attack brought on by heart diseased, according to a Monday report from TMZ.

It is not know if he was rushed to a hospital or if he was found dead.

This comes almost two years after Patrick’s son River died at the age of 11 months from organ failure. The mother was Patrick’s wife Tasha. 

Sharon has yet to make a comment on social media about Patrick’s death.

In her book The Beauty of Living Twice, she said she was close to Patrick and in more recently years has gotten along better with Michael.

The iconic Hollywood actress was last seen on Saturday as she smiled while leaving a Beverly Hills restaurant. 

His wife Tasha took to social media to share the heartbreaking news of her husband’s shock death.

She shared, ‘My heart feels like it’s been ripped out of my chest. Patrick went to be with our sweet River… I don’t know what else to say, he was my world.’

She continued, ‘I’m not sure what life is supposed to look like without my husband by my side and quite honestly I don’t want to, but I will of course. I just hope that you always stay by my side watching over Hunter, Kaylee and I.’

Tasha continued, ‘Until we meet again I will forever hold you and our wonderful (and some not so wonderful but just as important) memories close to my heart and will visit those memories always. I love you honey babe. 

‘My wish through all of this is that now at least River has his daddy with him and I hope the two of you are having the best time.’

The baby passed away in August 2021, just days after he was found in his crib suffering ‘severe organ failure’ that left him in a coma. 

The Sharon Stone posted a video of the baby boy along with the caption: ‘River William Stone. Sept. 8, 2020 – Aug. 30, 2021.’  

River was the youngest child of Stone’s younger brother Patrick and his wife, Tasha, who live in Ohio with their three children.   

The Casino star, whose video tribute was set to Eric Clapton’s Tears In Heaven, did not share any other information about what exactly happened to River – having only revealed that the youngster was suffering from ‘total organ failure’ and would need a ‘miracle’ to survive.

‘My nephew and godson River Stone was found in his crib w[sic] total organ failure today. Please pray for him. We need a miracle,’ she wrote at the time, while posting an image of River lying in a hospital bed while hooked up to numerous medical devices. 

River’s mother Tasha also wrote an impassioned plea for prayers on her Facebook page, revealing that her son had been airlifted to UPMC Children’s Hospital in Pittsburgh, where he was fighting for his life in a coma. He soon after died.

‘This is the HARDEST thing I have ever had to post but I am BEGGING everyone and anyone who prays please pray HARD for River,’ the devastated mother wrote. ‘Every single second of this is literally killing me. I just want my sweet sweet boy back.’ 

There are a number of severe medical conditions that can lead to multiple organ failure in children, however the leading cause is sepsis, according to the National Center for Biotechnology Information

Sepsis – which can be sparked by another infection in the body – is particularly dangerous for children, because the symptoms are more easily missed than they are in adult patients.   

Birth defects and other undiagnosed illness can also lead to pediatric organ failure however, and it is not yet known whether any of these conditions caused River’s severe illness. 

Stone was traveling in Italy when she revealed the news of her nephew’s devastating medical condition – having journeyed to Venice in order to take part in a photoshoot for Dolce & Gabbana. 

River’s passing comes amid a difficult time for the extended Stone family, which has seen several members dealing with serious health problems in recent months – including cases of COVID-19.   

In 2020, a grief-stricken stone revealed that her ‘adopted grandmother’ Eileen Mitzman and her godmother had died from complications associated with the virus.  

The actress’s sister, Kelly, who has lupus, and her husband, Bruce, had also contracted the disease and were left ‘fighting for their lives’ before eventually recovering.  

While speaking about her sister’s battle with the illness in an Instagram video shared in August 2020, Stone also shared that her mother, Dorothy, had suffered ‘two heart attacks’ in the five months leading up to her post – and had to have ‘five stents’, which help to open the arteries and prevent blockages in the heart – and a pacemaker as a result. 

It also appears as though River’s mother Tasha has been struggling with health issues in 2021; comments left on her Facebook page in January 2021 suggested that she had to receive medical treatment that required her to spend time away from her family. 

At the time, the mother-of-three revealed that she had returned home – but that she had an IV port in her arm, and would be undergoing continued treatment with the help of a home help nurse for several weeks.

‘I was able to come home with a power glide IV port in my arm so I can continue to receive treatments from a home health nurse at home for the next couple of weeks,’ she wrote. 

‘After that I will be switched to a pill form of the antibiotic. I am just thankful to be back with my family.’
