DC's emotional Instagram post comes days after he first spoke out about the death of his late partner, whose real name was Jacklyn Smith. In a June 2 statement to People, he shared that he and his family "thank everyone for their well wishes and ask for privacy during this difficult time." 

Jacky passed away in Miami May 31, after being found unresponsive in a Miami hotel room that evening.

"She was transported by Miami Fire Department to Mercy Hospital where lifesaving efforts were conducted," Miami Police Department's Public Information Officer told E! News June 6, "but unfortunately, she was pronounced deceased at the hospital."

Throughout the years, Jacky shared glimpses into her and DC's life together on Instagram, including recently opening up to followers about her life as a mom.

"I do a lot," she captioned photos with her little ones in honor of Mother's Day last month, "but being a mommy is my favorite." 

Jacky added, "God chose me 3X. I promise i never take it for granted. Im so damn blessed man!"
