“We do this together”: Wife Rob De Negus receives an award in his name and talks about this difficult time | Showbiz

ShowbizSinger Rob De Negus (80 years old) won a special television award for his farewell concert that was broadcast, but it was his wife, Jett, who accepted the award and told us on the blue carpet how they are doing now. For example, she recently had to say goodbye to her mother. “It’s a struggle,” she told De Telegraaf.

The broadcast of Rob de Nijs’ farewell concert in the Ziggo Dome – by Omroep MAX – is, according to viewers, the most touching television moment of the year. As a result, the Dutch singer received the Televizier-Ring Impact Award on October 12 at the 58th edition of the prestigious Golden Televizier-Ring Gala. Because Rob himself was unable to attend, it was his wife, Jett, who accepted the award.

But before that happened, Henriette (Gette) and his son Julius had a conversation for the first time with De Telegraaf’s correspondent, Jordi Versteegden. Jett admitted that this festive evening was particularly mixed. Last Sunday, she had to say goodbye to her 93-year-old mother, Therese, on her birthday. “But I’m doing this for Rob.”


They find it very special that his farewell concert last year in June had such a huge impact – both on those in attendance in the concert hall and on viewers at home. “It makes me really proud. “I’m really, really happy about it,” Julius replies. “Don’t think about it at that moment,” Jett adds. “It wasn’t until it aired and we read the reactions that it started to sink in. very crazy “.

Finally, how can they get through this difficult period? “After my mother died? This is just wrestling. We’re not happy with each other, but it’s a process. Everyone does it in their own way. And that’s good, we do it together.”

Health problems

However, in April this year, Rob De Negus was hospitalized after respiratory problems and a pulmonary embolism almost killed him. It was reportedly Jett who found him unconscious in the house. “It slipped through my fingers,” she said at the time. “Rob’s not breathing anymore.” She also could not feel the pulse of her husband, who suffers from Parkinson’s disease. “That was horror.” After three months, he was allowed to return home. “After nearly a hundred days in the hospital/rehab center, Rob is back home!” Jett wrote on Instagram in July.
