Bell, who dated Ryan in the mid-2000s, shared his heartbreak over the sad news in a series of tweets.
"I can not believe this is true!!!" the actor and singer first tweeted to his ex-girlfriend on Monday as news of her death spread.
"No no no!!!!" the former Drake & Josh star later posted to his own page, adding a photo of the onetime couple posing on the red carpet at the 2006 MTV Movie Awards. "I can NOT BELIEVE THIS IS HAPPENING!!!! Please wake me from this nightmare. @StevieRyan I loved you and will forever miss you!"
"This is too much," he continued in a second tweet. "My heart is crushed. @StevieRyan I love you and miss you..."
The Nickelodeon actor, who turned 31 on June 27, also retweeted one of Ryan's popular "Little Loca" sketches shared by Perez Hilton as a tribute. The video star was also famed for her impersonations of celebrities like Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber.
Many of Bell's fans reacted with messages of sympathy and support. According to E! Online, he dated the Stevie TV star from 2005 to 2006, though it's unclear if they remained close after their split.
