Diamond’s girlfriend, Tash Jules, 39, exclusively told DailyMail.com, ‘He was the love of my life. We planned on a future together and spoke often about having kids. I’m heartbroken.’ 

Tash, a certified pharmacy technician, said she is devastated and her entire world has been turned upside down. But she said she will cherish the last time he was able to speak to her – just one day before he died.

‘Even though he was struggling to breathe and had difficulty speaking he was able to get out the words to me, ”I love you,” I told him I loved him back.’

Tash said, ‘Dustin died at our friend Jules’ house in the Fort Meyers, Florida area.’

He had been hospitalized since last Friday and had just been released around noon on Monday, and was being taken to their friend’s house by medical personal for hospice care.
