UPDATED: LFO singer Devin Lima died early Wednesday morning after a one-year battle with stage 4 cancer, confirmed LFO public relations for Variety. He is 41 years old.

TMZ first reported the news.

"It was really broken hearted so I confirmed that Harold 'Devin' Lima died early this morning after brave battles with sticks," Brad Fischetti of LFO said in a statement. "Devin, as the world knows him, is an extraordinary talent, a father who loves him for his six children, and a loving partner for their mother. He is a beloved son and brother and a friend to many people. On behalf of the LFO family, thank you for the extraordinary outpouring of love from friends, family, fans, the media, and those in the music industry.

"A few days before he died, he said to me, 'Bro, when it's finished, just tell me that I disappeared.' My friend - Harold 'Devin' Lima has disappeared, "Fischetti added.

LFO, which was popular in the 90s, consisted of Lima and Fischetti. The pop group was originally a trio, with lead singer Rich Cronin, but disbanded in 2010 after his death to leukemia at the age of 35.

Lima (born Harold Lima) and Fischetti reunited and returned to tour in 2017. They recently released their first new song in 15 years, "Perfect 10."

The duo will start the tour earlier this year, but postponed their plans when Lima was hospitalized in late 2017 after doctors discovered a "ball-sized" tumor in his adrenal gland. Cancer spreads to Lima's kidneys, which must be removed.

"I hope we have better news to share," Fischetti said in October 2017, after sending a diagnosis to fans through a YouTube video. "It's devastating news, but at the same time, no one I know is stronger than Devin Lima. No one has a stronger body, mind, or soul, and if anyone can defeat this, that is Devin. "

Lima joined the band in 1999, replacing member Brian Gillis (aka Brizz), who joined the group since it began in 1995.

LFO, which sold more than 4 million albums worldwide, is famous for their hit song "Summer Girls," "Girl on TV" (a music video featuring actress Jennifer Love Hewitt), and "Every Other Time."

Their debut album, "LFO," sold more than 2.5 million copies worldwide, and scored two Top 10 hits on the Billboard Hot 100, with "Summer Girls" and "Girl on TV." They were sophomore and the last album, "Life Is Good," debuted in 2001.
