In a touching tribute, she wrote: “Took my hand and walked me down the steps, had a hug every time we met. There was only ever love. A real one. We lost a real one. I’m truly crushed.
“We lost the Black Panther, the hero that gave our babies a hero to aspire to. Just f****** heartbroken.
“Dearest Chadwick You will never be forgotten. Rest In Power!! God Rest your soul kind man.
“Can we please just love on each other now, we are losing each other!!!”
The Hollywood Actress Kate Hudson also paid tribute, saying Boseman’s death was “devastating”.
She wrote on Instagram: “I have no words, just love and tears at the moment. Sending all this love to his family and all the film families that had the pleasure to work along side this beautiful man. Rest my friend.”
Award-winning actor Sterling K Brown had a supporting role in Black Panther and shared a tribute to Boseman on Twitter.
He said: “I don’t have words. Rest In Peace, Bruh. Thank you for all you did while you were here. Thank you for being a friend. You are loved. You will be missed.”
The NAACP, one of the leading civil rights groups in the US, shared a tribute to Boseman on Twitter. Boseman’s portrayal of Marvel superhero Black Panther was lauded as an important landmark in the fight for wider representation in Hollywood.
The NAACP said: “For showing us how to conquer adversity with grace… For showing us how to ‘Say it Loud!’… For show us how to walk as a King, without losing the common touch…. For showing us just how powerful we are… Thank you #ChadwickBoseman #RestInPower #BlackPantherForever.”
