Tiger Lily's Australian grandmother passes away

Thursday September 23, 2010

Patricia Glassop, the mother of late INXS star Michael Hutchence, has died at her home in Australia at the age of 84.

In an internet posting, Michael's brother Rhett confirmed the sad news, writing: "She looked beautiful and I was happy to have been there for her.

"Thank you for all your kind words and wishes."

Through her late son, Patricia (pictured with her daughter Tina) was grandmother to Tiger Lily, Michael's child with Paula Yates.

Following the death of her parents, the 14-year-old was adopted and has been raised by Paula's ex-husband Bob Geldof.

Last year, Patricia spoke about her desire to see more of her granddaughter, saying that she "barely knew" her.

It is thought that the last time she saw her was in April 2006 when Tiger Lily and Bob visited Australia.
