TikTok star Dazhariaa Shaffer’s boyfriend speaks after her death

The reported boyfriend of TikTok star Dazhariaa Quint Noyes — who committed suicide at age 18 on Monday — shared a touching recollection of his late girlfriend.

Mike — who goes by @finessekidmike on TikTok — posted a short montage of video clips and photos that depicted them hugging, smiling, kissing, cuddling and hanging out together in a compilation that has been viewed more than 2.5 million times.

“I still love you. I think it’s time for me to let go,” says a female digital narrator as the images stream by and a version of the song “Heal” plays in the background. “Thank you for the memories that we made together. You are not my person anymore,” followed by a sad-face emoji, then continuing, “So if we are meant to be, we will find each other again.”

Mike simply captioned the post, “God bless her and her next.”

On Tuesday, Dazhariaa’s father, Joseph Santiago, posted his own video tribute on TikTok, which was captioned, “I just want to thank everyone for their love and support of my daughter. Unfortunately she is no longer with us and has gone to a better place.”
