Zendaya: Knowing Ronnie was the greatest honour of my life
Zendaya has paid tribute to “true rockstar” Ronnie Spector after her death at the age of 78.
The Ronettes singer, who was known for 1960s hits such as Be My Baby, Baby I Love You and Walking In The Rain, died on Wednesday after a brief battle with cancer, her family said.
In a post on Instagram, Spider-Man star Zendaya, 25, said: “This news just breaks my heart.
“There’s not a time I saw her without her iconic red lips and full teased hair, a true rockstar through and through.
“Ronnie, being able to know you has been one of the greatest honors of my life.
“Thank you for sharing your life with me, I could listen to your stories for hours and hours.”
