The wife of professional wrestler Jonathan Huber – aka Brodie Lee – has shared her devastation and grief over the loss of the star.
Jonathan passed away on Boxing Day after battling a non-Covid related lung condition – leaving behind heartbroken wife Amanda and their two sons, eight-year-old Brodie and three-year-old Nolan.
Jonathan was just 41-years-old when he died surrounded by those closest to him.
Taking to Instagram on Saturday evening, Amanda shared her devastating news with fans and followers while uploading a string of photographs of her life with her late husband.
Amanda – who wed the star back in 2008 – wrote: “My best friend died today. I never wanted to write out those words. My heart is broken.
“The world saw him as the amazing @brodielee (fka Luke Harper) but he was my best friend, my husband, and the greatest father you would ever meet.
“No words can express the love I feel or how broken I am right now.”
Explaining the cause of his death, she continued: “He passed surrounded by love ones after a hard fought battle with a non Covid related lung issue.
“The @mayoclinic is literally the best team of doctors and nurses in the world who surrounded me with constant love.”
She also explained that Jonathan’s wrestling company, All Elite Wrestling, had been supporting her through her grief.
She wrote: “On top of that, I can’t express my love and admiration for the way @allelitewrestling has treated not only my husband but myself and my kids.”
She added: “I’ve been surrounded by so much love and incredible people I can’t tag them all but they know who they are and I don’t think they will ever know how thankful I am for them.”
Amanda shared photographs of loving dad Jonathan with his sons – and with her.
Photos showed him proudly standing in the ring with his awards – while he displayed an even bigger beaming smile in photos with his wife and kids.
One photo showed the wrestler holding one of his sons as a newborn, while another showed him flexing his muscles in the ring with his son imitating him.
Further images showed the four as a family, and another one of Jonathan and his boys all flashing smiles.
Fans were devastated by Amanda’s heartbreaking update, with one responding in the comments: “I’m so so so sorry. Thinking of you and the boys.”
