Naya Rivera's Grief-Stricken Ex-Boyfriend Tahj Mowry Honors Her With This Instagram Message
Via social media, former child actor Tahj Mowry shared a painful post about Naya Rivera. The mom of one and former Glee actress went missing during a boating trip with her son on Lake Piru in California earlier this week.
In the heartbreaking post, he admitted that he has never stopped loving her. The Baby Daddy star did not say when his romance with Naya ended.
His devasting post read: "My sweet Naya - to say that I am devastated would be an understatement. This is a nightmare. Every day gets harder. However, I am holding onto the hope that you will be found. We grew up together. We became adults together. We experienced so many firsts together. You were my first experience with everything; love, intimacy, heartbreak. We broke each other's hearts and then mended them back together...more than once. 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."
He went on to say: "I pray deeply for the Rivera family and that God blankets them with strength, peace, and love right now. Mychal and Nickayla -, you will always be like younger siblings to me, and I love you dearly. I watched you two grow up into beautiful adults. George and Yolanda - whatever you need I am here for you. We are forever family, and I love you."
He continued with: "I ask everyone reading this to please lift up, along with the entire Rivera family, Ryan, and Josey, in prayer and to respect what they are going through during this time. I pray that God showers the entire family with strength and peace that only He can give. I still have faith. I still have hope. Let's please all pray that she is found and brought home safely. Naya, I miss you deeply. I wish I got the chance to tell you that once more, but I'm believing I will get that chance. I know deep down you've always known how I felt. I look forward to the day where I can see your beautiful face once more and tell you everything I've wanted to say that I didn't get the chance to say. I love you forever. I always have, and I always will."
Naya appeared on Tahj's show, Smart Guy , in 1997 and 1999. Some supporters have applauded his honesty.
