Our hearts are aching as we write this. It was just a few hours ago that we brought you the news that Sonny With A Chance star Tiffany Thornton lost her best friend on Wednesday, and now she has been hit with another blow. The 29-year-old star’s husband, Chris Carney, has died in a car accident at the age of 35.
The devastating wreck occurred early this morning in Arkansas and took the lives of Chris and his friend Ezekiel Blanton. According to TMZ, the car, which was driven by Blanton, “flew off the road while going around a bend and slammed into a tree.” The site also reports that one person was ejected from the vehicle, but it’s not clear which one of the men it was.
Tiffany and Chris were married back in 2011 and had two sons, Kenneth James Carney and Bentley Cash Carney, together. Despite a brief separation last year, the pair worked out their differences and was living a happy life in Arkansas.
While the former Disney channel star has, understandably, not said anything about the loss of her husband, her best friend and bridesmaid, Demi Lovato sent out a tweet that basically sums up everyone’s emotions:
This isn't real

We cannot even begin to imagine the pain Tiffany is going through today. Our thoughts and prayers are with her and her sons at this incredibly difficult time. Leave your condolences for Chris’ family and friends in the comments below.
