José José, known as "The Prince of Song," has passed away after a battle with cancer.
The legendary Latin singer -- whose real name was José Rómulo Sosa Ortiz -- died on Saturday at 71 years old.
His assistant, Laura Núñez, confirmed his death to several outlets.
José José revealed he was suffering from pancreatic cancer in 2017.
"I want to be the one to inform you guys what is happening in my life and career, like I have been doing all my life," he said at the time.
The 6-time Grammy-nominated star shared that he was receiving chemotherapy and fighting.
"I want to you to know that aside from the small tumor, I am well. I am ready to take on this new adventure in my life," he added.
José José hit the scene in the '70s and continued to reign with hits like "El Triste," "El Amar y el Querer" and so many more.
Although he was nominated multiple times for a Grammy award, the singer was never given the ultimate prize.
José José was married three times throughout his life.
His first wife was Natalia "Kiki" Herrera Calles, who was a socialite and 20 years older than him.
They were only married one year before they divorced.
In 1976, José José went on to marry a woman he dated prior to Herrera -- Ana Elena Noreña known in show business as Anel.
They divorced in 1991.
José José and Anel shared two children together.
At the time of his death, he and his third wife, Sara Salazar, lived in Miami.
They share one child.
