After years long battle, Trina Braxton’s ex-husband Gabe, has succumbed to Cancer. Gabe was 43-years old and passed away days before Christmas in Texas surrounded by family and friends on Thursday, December 20th. Gabe Solis and Trina Braxton wed in 2003 but unfortunately got divorced in 2015. Their failing marriage of infidelity and divorce was displayed on The Braxton Family Values reality tv show. In 2017, following two years after their divorce, the former couple tried counseling and appeared on OWN’s Iyanla Fix My Life to help mend their friendship and move on after their split. During the episode, Gabe spoke on how the Braxton Family Values reality star’s verbal abuse really took a toll on him throughout their marriage.
Watch the episode below.
Although the both shared a rocky road together, the two got to a place where they became very close friends. Gabe’s illness was kept a secret so his passing comes as a surprise to those close to him, nevermind the public.Our hearts and prayers go out to the Solis’ and Braxton family and friends during this difficult time. May Gabe rest in peace!

On December 20, 2018, a chapter permanently closed for my sons and I. For over 16 years, Gabe Solis was an essential part of our lives. Like all families, there are good and bad moments that are endured, but those moments, good or bad still made us who we are in the present. Unfortunately, someone leaked the story before we could make everyone aware of his passing, and I apologize to those friends and family members for finding out through social outlets. I also apologize directly to the Solis Family. I do humbly ask for your prayers for our families, but my greatest request is that when you are posting comments, remember Gabe’s passing is a loss for our family. He was a father to my boys, a son, brother, and friend to many and I would appreciate privacy and respect as we grieve his unexpected departure. @gabe_solis1234 I miss you, my dear friend.
