RadarOnline.com has obtained exclusive new details surrounding the sudden death of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump's brother.

Mark Vanderpump, 59, a DJ in England, died of a suspected overdose, according to reports.

Initial reports said Mark was found dead in his home on April 30. However, an official at the Gloucestershire's Coroner's Office in the U.K. exclusively told RadarOnline.com that Mark was taken to a nearby hospital before he suddenly died.

"He died in a Swindon Hospital and was transferred here on the 1st of May," the UK official told Radar.

The official confirmed the Coroner's Office in Gloucestershire will be carrying out an inquest, otherwise known as an investigation typically involving an autopsy to confirm an exact cause of death.

Mark's inquest was opened on May 10, and the coroner has scheduled a final court hearing to discuss the findings for cause of death for October 9, 2018, the official confirmed.

The Beverly Hills housewife spoke out about her brother's sudden death in a statement.

"This has come as a shock to us all. My brother and I had connected the day before this tragedy and I was completely unprepared for this," she said.

The statement continued: "He was my only sibling and I am shocked and saddened by his passing. I am trying to be supportive to his two young sons that he has left behind, and help them get through this tragedy. We appreciate your consideration in this private and extremely difficult family time."

In January, Radar exclusively reported the siblings had a nasty fight during a sit-down dinner in a New York City restaurant. Mark ultimately ditched the Beverly Hills housewife during the screaming match.
