«This is the saddest day of my life. My little brother Mikey passed away,» Perez wrote in the caption. «I don’t know what to say because I thought this day would never come. We had so much fun together growing up and he was always in my corner. We did everything together. He wanted nothing more than my happiness and he was so proud of me. He was the life of the party.

«Everyone who knew him loved him and he was always happy and upbeat. It’s hard to believe that I won’t be able to call him anymore and we won’t be able to spend time together. He was such a big part of my life and losing him is beyond devastating. I truly have no words.»
