Tahj Mowry took to Instagram late Friday to share an emotional tribute to Naya Rivera.
His tribute comes after the actress went missing from Lake Piru in California on Wednesday. A search for her body is currently underway, as she’s been presumed dead. Her 4-year-old son, Josey, was found safe on the boat they rented.
In Tahj’s post, he revealed they dated — more than once.
“My sweet Naya –- to say that I am devastated would be an understatement. This is a nightmare,” he began. “Everyday gets harder. However, I am holding onto hope that you will be found.”
“We grew up together. We became adults together. We experienced so many firsts together,” he continued. “You were my first experience with everything; love, intimacy, heartbreak. We broke each others hearts and then mended them back together…more than once.”
He added: “I will never not think of you. No woman has ever measured up what you gave me or how you made me feel. I’ve never liked to admit it but I have never stopped loving you. A part of me always wished for the day where God would bring us back together to be what we dreamt we could have been.”
