Famous singer and American Idol winner Jordin Sparks has been in the headlines recently for a lot of exciting life updates. She revealed in an interview this summer two exciting things: she had secretly gotten married and they have a baby on the way!
Over the weekend, however, Sparks shared a sad life update with an emotional tribute. She revealed that she had to say goodbye to her dog, Miles.
The singer said, “We had to put my favorite boy, Miles, down today. My heart is absolutely broken. He’s been a constant companion and source of unconditional love for the past 8 years. He was more than a pet, he was my friend. It sounds crazy but it’s true.”
“I think of the past 8 years and he’s in almost every single memory I can conjure up,” she continued. “From triumphs to tears, happiness to heartbreak…he was there. And he always knew if something was up with me. He’d jump up next to me and just lay there and be with me. The sweetest ever.”
Sparks continued, asking for prayer and emotional support from her 1.5 million Instagram followers. She said, “If you can, please pray for my family and for me. The sadness comes in waves and it’s overwhelmingly crushing. RIP Miles I love you so much. I can’t wait to see you again…I’ll have your ball.”
According to TODAY, the singer got Miles in 2010. Immediately after she got the puppy, she said that she felt a bond with him.
She had said, “You’re so attached to them, and you want to be with them all the time…I do talk to him sometimes, but it’s nice. He’s so cute.”
Prayers for Jordin Sparks and her family as any loss, no matter how big or small, is difficult to walk through. In other recent news, a new poll just revealed where Roy Moore stands as the Senate election nears.
