Soul legend Diana Ross has become the latest celebrity to lose a parent in a month of big-name family tragedies - her father has died in Detroit, Michigan. Fred Ross, 87, passed away on Tuesday (20Nov07), hours after his daughter had performed a sold-out show in Los Angeles. The singer flew to Detroit upon hearing the sad news - to mourn with her brother Chico. As WENN went to press, there were no further details about the cause of death. Ross' family tragedy comes after rapper Kanye West, Marie Osmond, Jane Seymour, lifestyle queen Martha Stewart and Jonathan Rhys Meyers all lost parents in recent weeks.
