Still not over his death, Thorne then shared on Instagram Stories a heartbreaking, self-taken video of her mourning Peep's death. "Anybody out there who is a Lil Peep fan, you guys know how talented he was," Thorne said, crying. "You guys know how great he was. Well, he was even more f***ing great as a person."
The "Famous in Love" star later posted on Instagram on Thursday, November 16 a series of pictures of herself with the "Benz Truck" rapper. One of the pictures showed Peep kissing Thorne's cheek as the actress looked straight at the camera. She captioned it, "Look at that big f***ing smile. Always lit up the room. Hearts are breaking everywhere."

"I am shocked and heartbroken. I do not believe Peep wanted to die, this is so tragic," she stated. "He had big goals and dream for the future which he had shared with me, his team, his family and his friends. I have spoken to his mother and she asked me to convey that she is very, very proud of him and everything he was able to achieve in his short life. She is truly grateful to the fans and the people who have supported and loved him."
