Following the sudden and tragic death of former MTV mainstay Christopher "Big Black" Boykin, his ex-wife Shannon Turley broke her silence on Twitter yesterday via Black's Twitter account. In the message, she described herself as heartbroken and said that Black was "everything" to her and their 9-year-old daughter Isis. She went on to say that they will miss him terribly.

Big Black was one half, along with Rob Dyrdek, that made up the star power on the hit MTV show Rob & Big, which went off the air in 2008. The duo returned to MTV for the reality show Fantasy Factory, which debuted in 2009 and aired its last episode in 2015.
