It's hard to believe that MTV's Real World Road Rules Challenge star Diem Brown has died after battling cancer, but fewer people are likely feeling that loss more than Chris "CT" Tamburello. Although they were no longer together when she passed away, their friendship far outlasted their relationship, and CT was apparently by her side until the end. One type of support CT offered was via Instagram, where he posted several adorable shout outs to Diem, encouraging her to keep fighting and helping her to promote her charity, MedGift.
Here are some of the cutest ways CT offered his support.
