Valerie Bertinelli’s Tribute to Ex Eddie Van Halen

We’re in tears.

Valerie Bertinelli paid respects to her ex-husband Eddie Van Halen with a touching tribute on social media.

Their son, Wolfgang, was the first to confirm the news that his dad died of throat cancer at the age of 65. A few hours later, Valerie put out a statement of her own.

The two married in 1981 and remained together until their divorce in 2007.

In her message, the actress said Eddie changed her life and gave her the “one true light in my life.”

We love you, Valerie. Rest in peace, Eddie.
