Natalie Cole is now 'at peace' according to her sister who spent Christmas with the singing legend.

Casey Cole said she and twin sister Timolin, 54, had flown out to Los Angeles to be with their seriously ill sibling over the festive period.

The family, including Cole's son Robert Yancy, enjoyed several days together during which Cole thanked them for their support, saying, 'I love you all'.

And Casey 54, who is now back home in Boca Raton, Florida, revealed her sister had son Robert by her side when she died in hospital on New Year's Eve.


She told Daily Mail Online: 'It's heartbreaking, she's fought a very long battle and she's at peace now.

She passed last night and we were not with her as we are back in Florida, but she was in hospital with her son Robert, he was by her side.'

Cole's 1991 album, "Unforgettable ... With Love," sold some 14 million copies and won six Grammys. It featured reworked versions of some of her father's best-known songs.

On the title cut, "Unforgettable," she sang along with her father's taped version to create a memorable duet.

Nat "King" Cole died of lung cancer in 1965.
