Ice T and Coco Austin were hit with a tragic loss this holiday weekend.
The family's beloved bulldog Spartacus passed away.
"My heart is hurting tremendously," Coco said in an emotional Instagram post Sunday. "Today Sparty died after knee surgery complications."
"He was my 1st baby with Ice," she continued. "There'll never be another dog like him. Everybody that knew him thought he was very human like and so lovable. His full name was Spartacus The Supermodel."
Ice was also distraught, sharing a photo with the caption, “Terrible News: This morning I lost my Best Friend.”
Although the dog had cancer in his knee, the loss was particularly unexpected due to his young age.
"He was only 6," Coco explained. "I have been crying my brains out I'm shocked!"
Even the couple's infant daughter Chanel paid tribute on her Instagram account, saying, “I lost my big brother, Spartacus, today after knee surgery... He was a cuddler and a lover.. I had a short time with him here on earth but worth every minute of it.”
Rest in peace, Spartacus!
