It’s been 2 weeks since Naya Rivera was confirmed dead due to a tragic drowning in a California lake. After staying mum, ex-husband Ryan Dorsey has finally broken silence about her passing.
Yesterday, the 37-year-old actor – who was married to the “Glee” actress from 2014 till 2018 – took to Instagram to pay tribute to his baby mama and share his grief.
In his lengthy post, Ryan recalled the 3 of them – including 4-year-old son Josey Hollis Dorsey – had just been together the day before Naya was reported missing. “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,” he wrote.
Despite divorcing after 4 years of marriage, the former flames have remain friends. “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,” the single dad added.

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. ♥️
An outpouring of condolences from celebrities and fans followed the discovery of Naya’s body. The creators of “Glee” – Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuck, and Ian Brennan – have also announced their intention to set up a scholarship fund for little Josey.
