“My heart is broken.. I truly had soo much fun filming this little segment… we both clearly didn’t wanna be there but made the most of it! Naya was truly a star.. one day as I was coming out of hair and make up I saw her sitting at base camp and she said ‘Alex… when you go on tour can you please say ‘everybody say heeeyy Ms. Newell’’ just for me!’ I said absolutely we laughed and had a short little convo about life and music.. I’ll cherish that moment for ever!!” Alex posted.

She added, “I watched her preform with such power, brilliance, and honesty.. While being a light as a person! The love she had for her family and friends was always clear! She will truly be missed! Josey you are loved by all the people who love your mother! My thoughts and prayers are with her family! Rest Sweet Angel.. and Well Done!”

Naya Rivera‘s friends and loved ones gathered at the lake on Monday (July 13) amid news that her body had been found. Our continued thoughts are with her loved ones.
