JESSIE J has shared her heartbreak after her security guard died.

The 30-year-old singer took to Instagram on Sunday to post a series of pictures with her bodyguard, Dave, and wrote a touching tribute to him alongside the images.

She wrote: "The love you had for your children. Was everything. We would laugh till we cried nearly everyday.
"We created Penelope and the blue Shetland pony together. We talked about our dreams.
"We talked about what our biggest fears were. You weren’t just my security, we ARE family. 4 years. Me and you."

Jessie added how Dave used to make her laugh all the time, texting her while she recorded The Voice Australia and recalled how the giggled all the way through the Fifty Shades movie.

She continued: "The late night walks we would take together to get some air. Who would shout “banana” quickest.
"When you came to see me when I was in hospital to cheer me up and I was out of it on anaesthetic and we again just laughed. You were so worried about me. You looked after me.
"Working out by the side of the bus everyday before the tour. You would push me and tell me I could do better.
"When you would do anything so I could see my fans waiting. You would always sort it out so it was safe for them and me."

Jessie recalled lots of other times Dave had been by her side, adding: "When I was terrified on that flight from Dubai to London because of the turbulence and you held my hand for 8 hours. I will never forget that.
"When we would go shopping and try on silly hats and glasses.
"When you would carry me to stage because my shoes wouldn’t make it through the mud.

"The way we laughed. I keep going back to that. We had so much fun Dave.
"Your love for working out. The way you would eat your meals and I would always wish I could be so disciplined. I am now. You inspired me."

The singer then listed some of the things Dave loved, including his dogs, tattoo collection and travelling.

She then wrote: "Your gentleness. Your voice. The way you stuck by me when everyone else left. It was me and you in Aus. You were my rock.
"I wrote this because I want everyone to remember the man you were. You were a gentle giant with a heart so big everyone felt it.
"I love you so much. We were supposed to meet for hot chocolate next week.
