Sandra Bullock's 57-year-old boyfriend Brian Randall has died

The world-famous American actress Sandra Bullock has lost her beloved. The star's boyfriend, the popular US photographer Brian Randall, died at the age of 57 after a long but unfortunately unsuccessful battle with a serious illness.

The cult movie star had been in a relationship with the photographer since 2015. The tragic news was reported to the press by Randall's family on Monday, and the man died on Saturday, August 5. This was reported by ABC.

In 2020, Brian was diagnosed with ALS – amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. It is a rare genetic disease of the central nervous system that affects motor neurons. Over time, people with this diagnosis lose function in the muscles of the arms and legs, tongue, and lungs. The prominent theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking had the same disease, and during his lifetime, in 2014, the movie Stephen Hawking's Universe was made about him.

The family said Randall chose to keep his battle with ALS private, and "those in his family who cared for him did everything they could to honor his request."

"We are eternally grateful to the tireless doctors who fought this disease with us and the amazing nurses who became our roommates, often sacrificing their families to be with us," the family added.

Bullock met Randall in 2015 when he was photographing her son Louis' birthday. The actress did not openly seek marriage after she divorced TV host Jesse Gregory James in 2010. However, the star of the films Miss Congeniality, Confessions, Ocean's Eight, and others literally had a real family with the photographer. They rarely appeared together in public, but the man sometimes accompanied the star at the premieres of her films and other social events.

In 2022, Bullock announced that she wanted to take a break from her career and devote herself to her family. Probably, this decision was prompted by the illness of her lover, with whom she wanted to spend more time before his death.

The actress considered Randall to be the love of her life, as she said in an interview at Red Table Talk in 2021.

The couple did not have any children together, but together they raised the actress's adopted son and daughter, 13-year-old Louis and 11-year-old Layla. The man also has an adult daughter, Skylar, from a previous relationship.
