Phoebe Bridgers‘ dad has died, the singer-songwriter announced Tuesday.

Bridgers revealed the news in an Instagram post, sharing a throwback picture of herself with pink hair alongside her late father. 

“Rest in peace dad,” she captioned the snapshot. 

The cause of death was not shared. 

Bridgers, 28, has been open about her difficult relationship with her father in the past. In a 2019 GQ profile, she said her father had a “drug thing.” She also touched on her paternal relationship in 2020’s “Kyoto” from her Punisher album.

“You called me from a payphone / They still got payphones / It cost a dollar a minute / To tell me you’re getting sober / And you wrote me a letter / But I don’t have to read it,” she sings in the opening verse, later singing, “I don’t forgive you / But please don’t hold me to it / Born under Scorpio skies / I wanted to see the world / Through your eyes until it happened.”
