Jeremy Jordan was left deeply heartbroken after revealing his 14-year-old nephew tragically took his own life this week.

The Smash actor, 35, took to Twitter to raise awareness for teen suicide as he asked fans to pray for his family in a poignant post.

He wrote: "Please take a moment amidst the chaos and say a prayer for my family. A couple of days ago, my 14-year-old nephew took his own life. We are devastated.

"Teen suicide is a serious issue we cannot forget. Please talk to your children. Listen to them. Look for signs. Take action. They are the most vulnerable amongst us in these times of turmoil. RIP Bubba."

In a follow-up tweet, Jeremy urged fans to talk to their children to ensure this doesn't happen in their families.

The actor added: "Please talk to your children. Listen to them. Look for signs. Take action. They are the most vulnerable amongst us in these times of turmoil."

Jeremy shared a link to a GoFundMe page for his late nephew

Jeremy also shared a link to a GoFundMe page, which was set up by his nephew's parents to help with funeral expenses.

The late teen's mum Kasey wrote a poignant post on the GoFundMe page, writing: "Early this monday morning my beautiful 14 yr old son sadly took his life."

She continued: "I'm trying to keep myself together as I learn how to grieve with 16yo son and my 5 month old daughter holding my hand along the way.

"Now of course I have to start making the big discussions how to give him a burial he deserves. I know our family alone can't pay for this. I hate that we have to ask for help."

The tragic news hit Jeremy even harder after the birth of his first child with wife Ashley last year.

Jeremy and his actress wife recently celebrated their daughter Clara's first birthday back in April.
