The heaviest neutron star yet seen has grown as a result of a dense, collapsed star tearing apart and consuming virtually all of its stellar

One of the Milky Way galaxy’s fastest-spinning neutron stars, it rotates 707 times every second.

.If they are significantly heavier than that, neutron stars completely disintegrate and turn into black holes.
