Stacy Francis of The X Factor on Fox, revealed a mentally abusive relationship during her audition, and we’ve just learned that the 42-year-old has been dealing with another personal tragedy. Can this poor woman catch a break? Read on for more!

When we met 42-year-old Stacy Francis on series premiere of The X Factor, Stacy shared her tale of a mentally abusive ex, who put her down constantly – to the point where she started to believe she was as bad as he said she was. Stacy was able to overcome this, and recently shared how she lost 70 lbs before coming on the show, but now she has been struck by tragedy again. TMZ.com is now reporting that the 42-year-old singer lost her father just two weeks ago, during the boot camp rounds on the show.

With her father passing away unexpectedly, Stacy Francis was considering dropping out of the competition to be with her family, friends of the singer told the gossip site. One friend added: “It has been such an emotional roller coaster for her,” but despite the struggle of emotions she is going through, Stacy Francis decided to stick it out on The X Factor, as she firmly believes that is what her father would have wanted.

Be sure to tune in tonight as boot camp continues on The X Factor on FOX!
