Rapper Fetty Wap is mourning the loss of a family member who passed away at far too young an age.
The 30-year-old rapper’s daughter Lauren Maxwell has died at age 4, with the girl’s mother, Turquoise Miami, sharing the news to Instagram on Saturday, July 31, according to media reports. The post included heartbreaking footage of Lauren playing in a swimming pool.
“This is my amazing, beautiful, funny, vibrant, loving, talented, smart and hardheaded princess mermaid Aquarius,” Turquoise Miami wrote, via Instagram. “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.”
While the child’s death was only just confirmed by her family this weekend, multiple reports from Rap-Up and Hot97 suggest Lauren actually died late June.
According to PEOPLE, following his performance at the Rolling Loud festival in Miami last weekend, the “Trap Queen” rapper even dedicated his set to his late daughter. “LoLo daddy did that s— for you last night baby girl,” he wrote on his Instagram Story.
Unfortunately, Lauren’s death is not the only recent loss in Fetty Wap’s life. His younger brother — whom he referred to as his twin — died last October.
“Stop asking me am I ok…No TF I’m not Ok,” the rapper wrote at the time.
“I done lost so many n— that s— was almost starting to feel normal…but lil brother man it feel like 2017 all over again this same feeling,” Fetty Wap continued. “I know ya slogan ‘don’t cry for me slide for me’ I just don’t know what ima tell my nephew when he ask me why I ain’t make sure you was ok…”
In addition to Lauren, Fetty Wap is also father to five other children: Aydin, 10, Zaviera, 6, Khari, 5, Amani, 5, and Zy, who was born in 2018.
While it’s not known what the cause of death is for the rapper’s daughter, some are speculating COVID.
Born Willie Junior Maxwell II, Fetty Wap is no stranger to personal loss as well and health issues as you can tell from him only being able to see out of one eye.
As it turns out, Fetty Wap has only had one eye for most of his life. Although there were some rumors suggesting that he lost his eye in a shooting, the truth is
