Tom Petty's Daughter Speaks Out Amid Confusion

This morning has been one of confusion for Tom Petty's legions of fans around the world.

The 66-year-old rockstar was reported dead and then after an announcement by the LAPD, the news was retracted to say he was "unresponsive due to cardiac arrest".

Unfortunately, the singer passed away, surrounded by family and friends.

While the public were completely confused by the events transpired, we can only imagine what his family were going through.

Petty's daughter Kimberly took to her instagram to write a strongly-worded note to Rolling Stone, who had previously stated her father had passed away, hours before it happened.

“my dad is not dead yet but your f**king magazine is…How dare you report that my father has died just to get press because your articles and photos are so dated…This is my father not a celebrity. An artist and human being. F**k u,” Kimberly wrote.

Kimberly has since uploaded twelve posts in honour of her father and has asked for privacy at this time.

Her final post, simply beautiful.

How awful for their poor family.

Our heart goes out to Kimberly and her loved ones during this time.
