Heartbreaking news for Vanessa Hudgens.
The 27-year-old High School Musical star announced that her father, Greg, has passed away after a battle with cancer.
"I am so sad to say that last night my daddy, Greg passed away from stage 4 cancer," the star wrote on Twitter. "Thank you to everyone who kept him in your prayers."

The star, who is set to star in tonight's Grease: Live musical, revealed that she will continue with the show.
"Tonight, I do the show in his honor," she later wrote.
It was earlier in 2015 that the star revealed her father was suffering from the fatal disease.
"Last year, my boyfriend, Austin [Butler], lost his mom, Lori, to cancer, and my dad has just been recently diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. Let me tell you, I hate cancer. I hate cancer with every cell of my being," she said while accepting the Breakthrough Performer Award at the 2015 Industry Dance Awards & Cancer Benefit Show.
Our hearts go out to Hudgens, her mother, Gina, and sister, Stella, during this heartbreaking time.
