A star of The Voice’s baby daughter was killed in a freak accident with a runaway Range Rover. One-year-old Pearl Black was coming back from a local park with dad Paul, 49, when they were hit by the car. Toddler Pearl died after being flown to hospital by helicopter while Paul suffered serious injuries.
Police believe the handbrake on the unoccupied Range Rover failed and it gathered speed down a steep hill. Paul, who doted on his beautiful little girl, was unable to pluck her from the path of the oncoming vehicle. Singer Paul, from Merthyr Tydfil, South Wales, appeared on The Voice in 2014 joking he was the son of judge and fellow Welshman Tom Jones. He also convinced judge Will.i.am that he was from the same town in New Jersey as Frank Sinatra
Pearl would have been two next month and the family were planning a party for her. A neighbour said: “She was such a gorgeous little girl with the most beautiful big brown eyes – it’s heartbreaking. The whole street has been in tears, Pearl was going to be a star like her dad.”
