Katharine McPhee, David Foster reveal they have suffered ‘a horrible family tragedy’

Katharine McPhee and her husband David Foster have shared the news of a tragic event in their family, causing them to abruptly end their performances in Jakarta, Indonesia and rush back home. McPhee expressed her sorrow in a statement on Instagram, apologizing to their Jakarta fans and explaining the need for one of them to be with their family during this difficult time. The couple, with an age difference of 34 years, had been touring in Asia together, with McPhee being accompanied by her Grammy Award-winning husband. McPhee hopes to return to Jakarta one day to perform for her fans. While the details of the tragedy remain undisclosed, fans and celebrities have flooded the comments section with messages of love and support. McPhee disabled comments on the post after some time. It seems that Foster will continue with the scheduled shows, indicating that McPhee will be traveling back home alone. Foster will be joined by Michael Bolton, Loren Allred, Peabo Bryson, and Raisa for his “David Foster and Friends” tour in Jakarta. The couple, who tied the knot in 2019, received the heartbreaking news while performing in Jakarta. TheFantasyTimes has reached out to McPhee and Foster’s representatives for further information. McPhee and 73-year-old Foster welcomed their 1-year-old son, Rennie, and McPhee has expressed her openness to expanding their family. Foster also has five adult daughters from previous relationships. Despite the challenges of having children later in life, Foster has expressed his love for fatherhood and prioritizes spending time with his youngest child.

Katharine McPhee and husband David Foster have announced that there’s been “a horrible tragedy” in their family, prompting them to rush home from Asia.

McPhee has been forced to bow out of their final two shows in Jakarta, Indonesia following the emergency that requires “at least one of” of them to head home immediately.

“Dearest Jakarta fans, it’s with heavy heart I announce I have to miss our final two shows of our Asia run,” McPhee wrote in a statement on Instagram Friday morning. 

“David and I have had a horrible tragedy in our family and at least one of us need to get back home to our family.”

The singer, 39, has been performing in Asia alongside her 16-time Grammy Award-winning husband, who is 34 years her senior.

“Please know how sorry I am and how much I wish to return one day and perform for you all. Love Katharine,” her post concluded.

While it’s unclear what exactly happened, fans and celebs alike rushed to the comments section to send their well wishes to the couple.

“Sending my love and prayers for your family❤️,” Nicole Scherzinger wrote.

Soon after, McPhee turned commenting off on the post.

It appears that Foster will still take to the stage on Friday and Saturday, suggesting that McPhee will travel home alone.

Foster will be joined by Michael Bolton, Loren Allred, Peabo Bryson, and Raisa, in Jakarta as part of his “David Foster and Friends” tour.

TheFantasyTimes has reached out to McPhee and Foster’s reps for comment.

McPhee and Foster, 73, who have been married since 2019, share a 1-year-old son, Rennie — but McPhee recently revealed that she wouldn’t mind expanding their brood.

The music producer also has five adult daughters from previous relationships: Allison, 52, Amy, 49, Sara, 41, Erin, 40, and Jordan, 36.


For more TheFantasyTimes you love …


Foster has openly spoken about the fact that he does not regret welcoming a sixth child at a later stage in his life.

“I’ve loved every single day,” the Canadian musician said in October 2022.

“It’s the standard thing of like, ‘Oh, well, you were so young when you had your children, and you were working day and night, you never saw them.’ And there is some truth to that, sadly, for my [older] kids. I was just working a lot. Even though I’m working a lot now, I’ll cancel anything just to hang with him. It’s just different.”
