1000-lb Sisters star Tammy Slaton’s husband, Caleb Willingham, has died aged 40.

Slaton and Willingham first met last year while attending a rehabilitation facility in Ohio, where they received treatment for obesity.

They quickly fell in love and made their relationship official through marriage.

However, their marital bliss was short-lived, as they decided to end their union just a few months later.

Willingham was married to Slaton for five months before their separation, and tragically, his death has now been confirmed on Facebook.

“I can’t believe I’m even making this post, but today GOD called my big brother home,” he wrote.

“RIP Caleb Willingham aka Killla K aka Double K aka one-half of the dynamic WWF tag team champions The W Boys aka my biggest supporter in anything I do.

“You will be forever loved and missed. Until we meet again.”
