““I never thought I would be posting rip Betty I’m numb af right now. I could say so much but the most important thing is the last time we talked I told you I love you and you told me you loved me back that’s all that matters to me.
“I just look back at how we started off friends in high school to starting something bigger than we all could have can imagined.
“I remember us wrestling before every video and going to mc Donald’s splitting up the money we did have and balling out on the dollar menu me being underage sneaking into clubs and most off all us getting on each other nerves all the time being on the road days at a time working hard towards getting back home so we can shop and blow it all lol even the bad times I cherish it all every moment.
“I knew you were going to have 100 kids lol you always loved kids I knew we were the dancing TLC and destiny child hahaha Yall always use to get mad when I said I was Beyoncé .
“This just doesn’t feel real right now I don’t think it really ever will I cant stop crying just knowing I’ll never be able to talk or see you again.
“In life we always say we’ll wait on the right time to make something right but when is the right time ? Life isn’t guaranteed. Rip Betty I love you Jamie,” read the caption.
