Rivera’s ex-husband and father of her son, Ryan Dorsey, recently broke his silence about the devastating loss.

“This is so unfair…there’s not enough words to express the hole left in everyone’s hearts,” Dorsey posted in a touching IG tribute. “I can’t believe this is life now. I don’t know if I’ll ever believe it. You were just here…”

“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,” he wrote.

The actor and producer went on to say that Rivera’s memory will live on through their son. 

“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,” he said.
