Taking to Instagram, Zendaya paid a touching tribute to the star upon announcing her death:

This news breaks my heart. Talking about her as if she weren’t with us seems odd because she’s so incredibly full of life. There’s not a single moment I’ve seen her without her iconic red lips and thick hair, a true rock star through and through. Ronnie, meeting you has been one of the greatest honors of my life. Thank you for sharing your life with me, I could listen to your stories for hours. Thank you for your unparalleled talent, your unwavering love for the show, your strength, your resilience and your grace. There is absolutely nothing that can dim the light you project. I admire you so much and am so grateful for the bond we share. You are a magical force of greatness and the world of music will never be the same. I wish everyone could have known you like I did. We celebrate your beautiful life and give you all the flowers you so deserve. Rest in peace Ronny. I hope to make you proud.
