Weatherly received condolences from fans and friends alike, including a message from NCIS co-star, Tess Rutherford.
“Michael, you always had his back. RIP little brother.
Hope you’re dancing with the angels now… pain-free.
” Rutherford wrote.
While the actor has kept his family life private, it is known that he is one of six siblings which includes four half-sisters. On a rare occasion, he posts an old photo of himself and his siblings on social media.
In March he and his sister Leigh embarked on a trip to Thailand.
No matter who you are, it’s difficult when you lose a sibling. May Michael find the support he needs during this time of grief.
