Richard Buckley has died at the age of 72 on Sunday night.
The 60-year-old fashion journalist and husband of designer Tom Ford, Richard Buckley, has died at their home.
After 35 years of marriage, the loving husband passed away of “natural causes.”
The sad news was confirmed by Ford’s team who released a statement the following day.
It read: “It is with great sadness that Tom Ford announces the death of his beloved husband of 35 years, Richard Buckley.
“Richard passed away peacefully at their home in Los Angeles with Tom and their son Jack by his side.”
The happy couple first met at a fashion show in 1986 and sparks flew between them as they started dating soon after.
After 28 years together, the pair finally decided to tie the knot in 2014 soon after same sex marriage was legalised in the United States.
In 2016, Tom told People magazine the exact moment that he fell in love with his husband.
During an appearance on The Jess Cagle Interview, he admitted: “We were able to see each other and live together for a month. Since then we have been married.”
As he reminisced about the emotional moment, he explained he could “vividly” remember the first time he met his husband.
The pair first bumped into each other in a lift, but by the end of the ride together Ford said he knew he would spend the rest of his life head over heels in love with Buckley.
He added: “By the time that elevator landed on the ground floor I thought, ‘You’re the one.’ That was it. Click. Sold.
“It was literally love at first sight.”
