Latin singer/actress Yolandita Monge is mourning the death of her husband Carlos Mamery after he reportedly suffered a massive heart attack on Tuesday (02Dec14).

The Puerto Rican producer and music executive, nicknamed Topy, was just 54.

The son of radio personality Gilbert Mamery, he began working in broadcasting at the age of 15.

He went on to forge a career as a talent manager, counting artists including salsa star Jerry Rivera, actor Jorge Abello and his wife among his clients.

Mamery served as a judge on Idol Puerto Rico, the local version of hit reality Tv show American Idol.

He died just weeks before his 25th wedding anniversary. He and Monge wed on New Year's Eve in 1989.

Paying tribute to Mamery, Puerto Rican singer Olga Tanon tweets, "Surprised, upset with the sudden death of Topy Mamery", while Venezuelan star Ricardo Montaner adds, "I've lost a brother."
