Fetty Wap is mourning the death of his daughter.
The rapper’s 4-year-old daughter, Lauren Maxwell, has sadly passed away. Following reports of her death in June, her mother, Turquoise Miami, took to Instagram on Saturday (July 31) to confirm the devastating news.
“This is my amazing ,beautiful , funny , vibrant, loving ,talented , smart and hardheaded princess mermaid Aquarius,” she wrote alongside a video of her daughter in the pool. “If you see this post scrolling by with her comment or just say to yourself ‘ i love you LAUREN ‘ because they say that souls can feel your love #rip.”
It’s unclear what caused Lauren’s death. According to Hot 97, she had been sick for a month and died in her sleep.
Fetty acknowledged his daughter by dedicating his Rolling Loud performance to her. “LoLo daddy did that shit for you last night baby girl,” he wrote following his set at the Miami festival on Sunday (July 25).
Turquoise also defended Lauren’s father, who has been criticized for his parenting. “The internet had very negative energy towards our child which bought me distress reading, so please stop any negativity towards him,” she said. “Lauren love her daddy too just like she love me and he mourning hard just like me.”
