Former Voice contestant Christina Grimmie has died at the age of 22 after being shot following a concert in Orlando, officials in Florida say.
Christina Grimmie was taken to a local hospital tonight in Orlando after being shot by a male suspect, who proceeded to shoot himself.
According to officials, the male attacker opened fire when the singer was signing autographs.
The assailant was tackled by Christina Grimmie’s brother.
In 2014, Christina Grimmie finished third during season six of The Voice.
Police say Christina Grimmie was shot about 22:45 local time on June 10 at The Plaza Live in Orlando.
The attacker, whose name has not been released, had two guns.
A police investigation is now under way.
After news of Christina Grimmie’s hospitalization, The Voice tweeted: “We are heartbroken. @TheRealGrimmie is a loved member of our family. Our thoughts are with her and her family. #PrayForChristina.”
Gwen Stefani and her husband Gavin Rossdale are divorcing after nearly 13 years of marriage.
Gwen Stefani has filed her petition for divorce on August 3 at Los Angeles Superior Court citing irreconcilable differences.
She married the Bush singer at a church in London’s Covent Garden in September 2002 and they have three sons together.
Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale say they want joint custody of Kingston, 9, Zuma, 6, and Apollo, who was born last February.
In a statement the former couple said they were committed to raising their children together.
The singers said: “While the two of us have come to the mutual decision that we will no longer be partners in marriage, we remain partners in parenthood and are committed to jointly raising our three sons in a happy and healthy environment.
“To that end, we respectfully request privacy from the media during this time.”
Gwen Stefani, 45, is a coach on The Voice.
The singer and her 49-year-old husband worked together on The Voice in 2013, but she later admitted it had been “awkward”.
“We’ve only collaborated on making babies,” she admitted.
Gwen Stefani is also a successful designer and launched her own fashion label L.A.M.B. in 2003.
She posted a picture online a week ago in which she appeared to be on holiday in Montana.
Gwen Stefani wrote: “Wow #Montana u r so beautiful #favoritevacaever #neverwanttogohome.”
Gavin Rossdale tweeted his 170,000 followers on July 29, saying: “Bye bye London. Flying home.”
No date of separation was listed in the Los Angeles court filings.

The first season of the Russian The Voice concluded on December 29, 2012.
Christina Aguilera silenced last year’s fat-shaming critics by showcasing her 20 lbs weight loss in a pink mini-dress at a NBC press event in Beverly Hills on Saturday.
Christina Aguilera, 32, looked confident and drop-dead gorgeous in the tiny cleavage-baring frock, which slightly fanned out at the skirt.
The four-time Grammy winner paired her slim new silhouette with platinum waves, a very dark tan, and Christian Louboutin heels.
Christina Aguilera shed the weight thanks to the 1,600-calorie Fresh Diet premium meal-delivery plan, yoga, and regular sessions with trainer Tee Sorge.
“She did it all on her own,” an insider told Us Weekly last month.

“A lot of people were on her about her weight and it depressed her. She went through a bad time because of the criticism.”
A friend of Christina Aguilera’s revealed that she still “wants to lose a bit more”, but “she feels great”.
She joined The Voice‘s Adam Levine, CeeLo Green, and Carson Daly for the Television Critics Association event at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
Christina Aguilera addressed her absence last season, which was filled by Columbian pop star Shakira.
“Thank god for Shakira, she did a beautiful job, she has sweet, lovely energy,” Christina Aguilera told reporters.
“I cannot live in front of the camera 24 hours a day. I have to take breaks and stay connected with myself…When the cameras go off, I put on sweats and a T-shirt and I’m mom. [My son Max] starts kindergarten in the fall so I’m excited about that.”
Auditions are already underway for the NBC singing competition’s fifth season – premiering September 23.
And The Voice producers are also reportedly pleased with Christina Aguilera’s recent weight loss.
“Show execs hope her new look will spark viewers’ interest in her again and get people tuning in,” a show insider told Us Weekly.
Christina Aguilera showed off her thin frame in a tight skirt and cropped top for her spirited performance of Feel This Moment with rapper Pitbull during The Voice Season 4 finale on Tuesday night in Los Angeles.
Christina Aguilera, 32, looked incredible in a skintight bandage black skirt and a sparkly silver top that revealed her hot pink bra underneath.
The singer added a boost of height to her 5ft 2in frame with sky high black peep-toe heels and accessorized with giant diamond earrings.
Christina Aguilera wore her platinum blonde hair in glamorous curls over her one shoulder and opted for a smokey eye and nude lips.
She made quite a grand entrance: Pitbull stood onstage and started his rap, until Christina Aguilera appeared on a raised platform to hysterical screams from the crowd.
The set turned into a disco scene with multi-colored lights and a lit-up stage.
Christina Aguilera appeared to hit a few flat notes and the star was seen touching her earpiece periodically.
The pair’s lively performance ended with colorful confetti and ribbons raining down onto the stage.
Christina Aguilera’s super-slim appearance was a far cry from what she looked like back in November at the American Music Awards in Los Angeles.
Sources told Us Weekly that critics motivated her to lose more than 20 lbs in weight.

“A lot of people were on her about her weight and it depressed her,” a friend said.
“She went through a bad time because of the criticism.”
Christina Aguilera reportedly signed up for the 1,600-calorie-a-day Fresh Diet program, which offers users a variety of nutritious food options.
“She did it all on her own,” said the source.
“She goes online and picks out her food.”
Christina Aguilera was always a slender entertainer but after her 2010 divorce from Jordan Bratman she apparently gained 40 lbs by gorging on pizza and living a life of excess.
The singer was also seen enjoying the nightlife with boyfriend Matthew Rutler – her steady man since late 2010 – which no doubt put pounds on her tiny frame.
Prior to her weight loss, in an interview with Lucky magazine, Christina Aguilera said she was totally unrepentant about the way her clothes advertise her assets.
“Actually, the challenge I’ve always had is being too thin, so I love that now I have a booty, and obviously I love showing my cleavage,” she told the magazine.
“Hey, if you can work it and you can own it, that confidence is going to shine through.”
Meanwhile, country singer Danielle Bradbery, 16, was crowned the Season 4 winner of The Voice on Tuesday night.
Michelle Chamuel, 26, finished second and the Swon Brothers, Colton, 24, and Zach, 27 came third.
Danielle Bradberry’s victory marks the third triumph in four seasons for one of judge Blake Shelton’s proteges.
