Gabrielle Union is another celebrity who pays homage to DMX . Check out their emotional message here.

“I prayed I didn’t have to think about how to describe what you meant to me. We bonded over our shared love for dogs, cold beers, reruns of Golden Girls, New Edition, and adventure. From random nights of go-karting in the hills of Sherman Oaks to bowling to sitting in your trailer laughing at 80s soul music with @anthonyanderson. We had littermates that you bought on the set in Long Beach at 4am. You have Pebbles and Bam Bam and I have my beloved Bubba (the best dog that ever lived). You introduced me to the @ruffryders and @therealswizzz who have treated me like family for over 20 years, ”she began her message.
