Fetty Wap in tears in first clip after death of 4-year-old daughter
Fetty Wap broke down in tears as he thanked his fans for their support following the tragic death of his four-year-old daughter.
The rapper’s little girl Lauren passed away recently, her heartbroken mum confirmed last week, but her cause or death or when she died is yet to be shared.
He has now pleaded with his fans to flood social media with butterfly emojis because his daughter loved them.
Fetty said Lauren would be happy about all the love that’s been shared for her online in recent days.
Speaking in the video, Fetty said: “Man. Man. Thank y’all, yeah? That’s love. I appreciate y’all, for real. Damn. That’s love. She’d be happy as hell.”
He was then seen holding a picture of Lauren, and saying: “Thank y’all, yeah? I appreciate y’all. Look at my little twin right there.
“Will y’all do me a favor, though? For real. Y’all can do me a favor? Just post all butterflies. All butterflies.
“Shorty loved butterflies. Look at my little baby. Look at my little twin right there. I love you.”
Fetty also shared a picture of Lauren smiling for the camera.
He captioned the image: “Hey mini me (My Twin)…. I love you to the moon and back forever and ever best friend.”
Lauren’s mum, US dancer Turquoise Miami, confirmed the little girl had died in a heartbreaking Instagram post last week.
She shared a video of Lauren playing in a pool, with Turquoise calling her her “amazing, beautiful, funny, vibrant” daughter.
Turquoise wrote: “This is my amazing, beautiful, funny, vibrant, loving, talented, smart and hardheaded princess mermaid Aquarius.”
The caption continued: “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 [broken heart emoji].”
Turquoise also urged her followers to be kind to Fetty as he grieves for Lauren.
She said on her Instagram Stories: “It couldn’t hurt Some of y’all to be a little bit more compassionate, you don’t have to kick a man while he’s down.”
It is believed Lauren passed away in June but there has been no confirmation yet.
After a performance at Miami’s Rolling Loud festival last month, Fetty spoke about Lauren on his Instagram Stories.
“LoLo daddy did that s*** for you last night baby girl,” he said.
Fetty reportedly has a total of six children by five different mothers: Aydin, 10, Zaviera, six, Khari, and Amani, both five, and Zy, three.
He is believed to be single after splitting from model Leandra K. Gonzalez after six months of marriage last year.
