“So sad to hear this. RIP,” Hilton wrote.

Model Kaia Gerber, who is the daughter of Cindy Crawford, was friends with the actor, and wrote in a dedicated Instagram Story: “I remember that time we sat on the couch and spent the whole day coming up with our own secret language that we continued to speak every time we saw each other.”

She added: “I wish we could go back there. I wish we were still talking in sentences that probably annoyed everyone else but made us crack up every time. I wish I was still sitting on my bathroom floor FaceTiming you, because that was the only place I had wifi and I never wanted to miss a call from you.”
