Ben Kweller Mourns Son’s Death After A Car Crash

Ben Kweller, a 41-year-old singer-songwriter who has toured with Ed Sheeran, tragically lost his 16-year-old son, Dorian, in a car accident on Monday. The musician confirmed the devastating news through an Instagram post on Tuesday. Kweller described his son as a “true legend” and a “kindest, gentle soul” who was loved by all.

Ben expressed his disbelief at the tragic turn of events and said that he had “no idea why things like this happen.” He added that his family was in “complete shock” and struggling to process “this disaster.”

Ben Kweller thanked his fans, friends, and loved ones for their support and prayers during this difficult time. The loss of a child is a heartbreaking tragedy, and our thoughts and condolences go out to the Kweller family.
