Rupert Young, the twin brother of UK singer and Pop Idol winner Will Young, dies aged 41

Rupert Young, the twin sibling of UK artist and Pop Idol champ Will, has passed on at 41 years old.

A representative for the artist affirmed the demise and mentioned protection for the star and his family “during this very difficult and sad time”.

The artist had spoken in the past about his kin’s emotional well-being issues and fights with liquor.

“It’s very tough having a family member who is an addict,” he told the Daily Record in 2008.

Rupert Young, who set up an emotional wellness good cause called The Mood Foundation in the last part of the 2000s, additionally talked transparently about his battles with gloom.

In 2008 he discussed seeing his sibling perform on morning TV when he had himself gone through the earlier evening drinking and self-hurting.

“It seemed bizarre to me that two people who are genetically the same could behave in such different ways,” he said.

In 2015 Will Young talked about having post-horrendous pressure issue (PTSD), which he credited halfway to being isolated from his twin during childbirth.

The artist was delegated the main Pop Idol in 2001 and has since discharged seven collections, composed two books and has followed up on film and stage.

At the point when he set up The Mood Foundation, Rupert Young said he had been “badly affected by depressive conditions” and had “suffered from addiction, self-harm and major depression”.

“It took years for me to first realise there was something wrong and then to find the right treatment,” he wrote.

As indicated by data from the Charity Commission, the association worked from 2008 to 2010.
