Shahs of Sunset Star MJ Javid Reveals Her Father Has Died

Sad news for Shahs of Sunset star Mercedes ‘MJ’ Javid!

The Bravolebrity revealed on Instagram that her father, Shams Javid, has passed away.

“It is with great regret that I share the news of my sweet father’s passing,” MJ captioned several photos of her dad. “Although this is something extremely personal for me and it’s taken some time to process, those of you who have followed my journey know how much I love my father.”

MJ continued, “I am comforted knowing he is in a better place now. I am so thankful for my mom, Tommy, my family, and friends, who have been incredibly supportive through this greatest loss. #MyEndlessLove.”

Back in October, during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, MJ revealed that her father had a stroke last year

“I lived for my dad. It was really hard. I was in denial. I didn’t know how to handle it,” MJ explained.

MJ recently got married to her longtime love Tommy Feight in April, however, it turns out that MJ’s father did not walk her down the aisle.

“He was not able to walk me down the aisle because, unfortunately, the day after Christmas he got really sick. He’d been really healthy for a really long time, like a year,” MJ revealed during an appearance on The Tomorrow Show with Keven Undergaro.

“He’d been in pretty stable health. I think I tapped out emotionally, I think there’s a sadness that is undeniable because there’s things that didn’t pan out. I definitely didn’t want my sadness to ink into everybody else’s day,” MJ added. “I’ve been incredibly dedicated to my father since the day I was born and when he wasn’t feeling well I was 100 percent at his side.”

The AllAboutTRH team sends our deepest condolences to MJ and her family. I always remember how fondly MJ talked about her dad on Shahs. Rest in peace Shams.
