Earlier this week, 33-year-old Naya Rivera was found dead, days after she went missing from a boat on Lake Piru in California.
Many celebrities, including the entire Glee cast, wrote heartfelt tributes in the actor's honor, praising her warm personality and incredible talent.
And in a new post, Naya's ex-fiancé, Big Sean, has also spoken out.
The two started dating in April 2013 and got engaged six months later. But the following April, it was announced that the pair had split.
"Rest In Peace Naya, God Bless your Soul!" Big Sean wrote on Instagram.
"Thank you for blessing us all with your talent and presence. [Y]ou are a hero! Not just because of how you saved your son, also because of the barriers you knocked down for so many people to make them feel confident in themselves and to stand tall and be proud when they couldn’t achieve that on their own."
The rapper continued, "I appreciate and cherish everything that ever happened between us for making me wiser and a better person."
He concluded, "I’m still grieving and in shock, I can’t believe this is real. I’m praying for you and your family and I know your watching over them and protecting them. Rest In Peace Naya 💙🙏🏾."
