Fetty Wap mourns his daughter.
The rapper’s four-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, lively, loving, talented, clever and sober princess mermaid Aquarius,” she wrote next to a video of her daughter in the pool. “If you scroll this post with their comment or just say to yourself ‘I love you LAUREN’ because they say that souls can feel your love # tear apart.”
It is unclear what caused Lauren’s death. According to Hot 97, she had been sick for a month and died in her sleep.
Fetty paid tribute to his daughter by dedicating his Rolling Loud performance to her. “LoLo Daddy did that shit for you last night, baby,” he wrote after his set at the Miami Festival on Sunday July 25th.
Turquoise also defended Lauren’s father, who was criticized for his upbringing. “The internet had very negative energy about our child which made me scared while reading, so please stop any negativity towards him,” she said. “Lauren loves her daddy as much as she loves me, and he grieves as much as I do.”
In honor of Father’s Day, Fetty shared an affectionate post with photos of his six children. “Pieces of my heart ❤️ … .. Everything and everyone is important to them,” he wrote.
