AMERICA'S Got Talent magician Scott Alexander has died after suffering a stroke while working on a cruise ship.
Scott's wife Jenny, who appeared on the reality TV show as his assistant, took to Instagram on Monday and informed fans about her husband's sudden death at the age of 52.
Alongside a family photo, Jenny wrote: "I lost my husband yesterday. My kids lost their father. He suffered a stroke while working on a cruise ship in St Kitts and did not make it home to us.
"We are shattered. Please hold us in your prayers," she added.
Jenny's sad post was inundated with comments from her followers as many people rushed to send their condolences.
"I am so very sorry for your tragic loss," one person said.
Another wrote: "Oh my god. I can’t imagine a loss like this. Im so very sorry to hear of this news. My deepest condolences."
A third person commented: "Sending lots of love to you and the kids. I am so sorry for your loss!"
And a fourth follower added: "I am so so sorry Jenny. Unimaginable. Sending healing thoughts to you and your kids."
Scott competed on season six of America's Got Talent back in 2011, and certainly impressed judges Piers Morgan, Sharon Osbourne, and Howie Mandel with his magic tricks.
During his first audition, Scott made a woman appear out of nowhere and she was supported by water as she levitated.
Piers, Sharon, and Howie all voted yes and sent him through to the Vegas Round.
He was eliminated in the quarterfinals following a performance of an illusion in which a gospel choir disappeared and then reappeared a distance away.
Following his appearance on AGT, Scott went on to have the honor of headlining Caesars Palace in Las Vegas for over seven years.
He also appeared in season two of the television series Penn & Teller: Fool Us.
Scott is survived by his wife Jenny and their three children, who all live in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
