According to Ariana Grande’s Twitter, her and Frankie’s grandfather has passed away. He died on Tuesday.
Ariana had been chronicling her grandfathers illness, posting photos recently of her with her grandfather online. Frankie of course is not aware his grandfather was sick.
According to Ariana, his grandfather did not wish for Ariana or the family to tell Frankie, for fear he would leave the show. Ariana tweeted that she “asked last week if he wanted us to pull Frankie off BB & he said “No Way!” he’s gotta play the game even tho I don’t understand it.”
So far, Big Brother has honored those wishes and has not told Frankie, as he does not seem to be aware on the Live Feeds.
We send our heartfelt thoughts and sympathies to the Grande family at this sad time. May their grandfather rest in peace.
