Diem Brown’s boyfriend Chris “CT” Tamburello has posted a response to his girlfriend’s death. Brown, 32, died after a long battle with cancer on Nov. 14. CT took to social media just a day after attending Diem’s funeral.

CT posted a snapshot on Instagram of a picture of Diem (which uses her given name Danielle), rosary beads and a ring that he had given to her.

He wrote, “You have always been My Angel. And now you have your wings. We've been thru so much over the years. Thru the ups and downs we somehow managed to keep our promise. We never gave up on each other. Our plan to be together forever hasn't changed... it's just going to take a little longer now. And I'm going to hold onto this ring for you till we are together again. So don't worry mama, I'm not afraid. I know you will always be with me to give me your strength. You are The Love of My Life. My reason to be a better man. I Love You Always and Forever.”

Tamburello had publicly supported Brown on Instagram prior to her death. He posted pictures from her bedside and asked fans to donate to Brown’s foundation, MedGift.

CT and Diem met on MTV’s “The Challenge” in 2006. Audiences followed their relationship as they competed on six seasons of “The Challenge.” They met shortly after Brown finished treatment for her first battle with ovarian cancer. After viewers saw their first kiss, Brown exclaimed, “It was perfect!”

While the two seemed to have an on again/off again relationship, they were once again together at the time of Brown’s death. The two were even rumored to be appearing on the upcoming season of “The Challenge” together.
