Slipknot have made an official statment via their facebook account, delivering the heartbreaking news that Clows daughter has passed away at the age of 22.

The official statement:

"It is with a broken heart, and from a place of the deepest pain, that I have to inform all of you that my youngest daughter, Gabrielle, passed away yesterday - Saturday May 18th, 2019. She was 22 years old. Funeral arrangements will be forthcoming. My family and I ask that our privacy be respected moving forward. Thank you.

Much love,

We will update this story when we know more.

With the release of their latest video, Unsainted, and an army of fans welcoming the new album, ‘We Are Not Your Kind’ due out August 9th, Slipknot should feel on top of the world, however, this devastating news is nothing but heartbreak for the band, Clown and his family.

Slipknot have not given any further details at this time regarding the tragic death of Clowns daughter and obviously wish for privacy and understanding at this very difficult time.
