Eve added that Reid was an amazing mother and wife. The rapper noted that even though they had not been in touch for years, she was still devastated by the news of her passing.

Reid passed away on Monday after a battle with colon cancer.


She further explained that she was not aware of Reid's sickness and concluded by asking fans to donate to her family as they mourn their loss.

As mentioned earlier, several of Reid's colleagues and co-stars have dropped out to express their shock over her death while recounting their memories of her.


Legendary actress Halle Berry, who acted alongside Reid in the 1997 comedy "B.A.P.S.," paid tribute to the late actress while describing their friendship as an unexplainable connection.

Berry shared a video of herself and Reid locked in a warm embrace while filming the series. She accompanied it with a caption, stating how heartbroken she was by her friend's death.

Reid passed away on Monday after a battle with colon cancer. The sad news was shared by her family and confirmed by Je'Caryous Johnson, the CEO of Je'Caryous Entertainment.

Though Reid is gone, her legacy in Hollywood will live beyond as her loved ones hold on to the beautiful memories and time spent together.
