Kyle Sandilands surprised listeners on his KIIS 1065 radio show this morning, sharing the news of his father’s death just yesterday.
Kyle had been on a work trip to Paris and London over the past week while his Brisbane-based father, Peter, was battling the final stages of cancer.
“The doctors said he would probably pass away during that week I wasn’t going to be in the country. I went up, spoke to him — my brother and I had a nice visit. He was suffering — he had liver cancer and bowel cancer,” an emotional Kyle told listeners.
“I said to him, ‘Don’t you die while I’m away, it’d ruin the trip!’ He was laughing, but he was suffering greatly.’
“When I arrived home yesterday, I sent a text to a few friends — including Dad — saying, ‘I’m back bitches, I’m back in the country,’ — then he died 10 minutes later.”
Kyle then explained that his father had been repeatedly asking if his son had touched down back in Australia — it was only when Kyle’s stepmother relayed the text message that his father passed away.
