Naya Rivera's ex Ryan Dorsey shares devastating tribute to late Glee star

Naya Rivera’s ex-husband Ryan Dorsey revealed he saw the Glee actress the day before she disappeared, in a heartfelt tribute.

The 33-year-old – who played Santana Lopez in the musical show – was declared dead on 13 July, days after she went missing while on a boating trip with her son, Josey.

Her body was found on Lake Piru, California, five days after her disappearance.

And, taking to Instagram, Ryan shared a stunning throwback of the actress as she cuddled their son.

‘This is so unfair…there’s not enough words to express the hole left in everyone’s hearts. I can’t believe this is life now,’ the 37-year-old began. ‘I don’t know if I’ll ever believe it. 

‘You were just here… We were just in the back swimming with Josey the day before. Life just isn’t fair. I don’t know what to say…I’m thankful for our times and our journey that brought us together and gave us the sweetest and kindest smart little boy we could ever hope for.

This is so unfair…there's not enough words to express the hole left in everyone's hearts. I can't believe this is life now. I don't know if I'll ever believe it. You were just here… We were just in the back swimming with Josey the day before. Life just isn't fair. I don't know what to say…I'm thankful for our times and our journey that brought us together and gave us the sweetest and kindest smart little boy we could ever hope for. I remember sometimes you used to get annoyed at me: "Ryan can you stop snap chatting!" Haha. I'm glad I didn't listen to you because I have hundreds and probably thousands of snaps and videos that Josey will have forever and know his momma loved him more than life, and how much fun we had together as he was growing up. Life is all about good times and bad times but with Josey it makes the bad a little less so because a part of you will always be with us. He'll never forget where he came from. We miss you. We will always love you. Love you Meep. 🖤💔🖤 ♥️ To everyone that reached out and I haven't had a chance to or just didn't get back to you…thank you all for the overwhelming love and support you've sent our way. I'll just say in closing, be kind to yourself, be kind to others, forgive…forget…don't hold grudges….if you have nothing nice to say maybe try not to say anything. There's peace in silence. Time on Earth is precious and you just never know….you never know what could happen. Hold your loved ones close, and cherish the times you have with those you care about. ♥️

Naya was announced dead at the age of 33 when her body was discovered at Lake Piru in California.

The Glee actress was last seen in the boat with her son, Josey, before she was declared missing.

Law enforcement at the scene suggested that in her last moments, Naya mustered enough energy to save her son and get him safely to the boat, before disappearing under the water.

Following the news of her death, cast mates rushed to pay tribute to the star, including close friend Heather Morris, Dianna Agron and Chris Colfer.
