Fetty Wap was emotional when he asked his fans to pay tribute to his late 4-year-old daughter … soliciting them to post butterfly pics as a way of honoring her life.
The rapper held a picture of his young daughter, Lauren Maxwell, and kissed it during a brief Instagram Live session … calling her “my shorty.” Fetty asked his followers to do him a solid by posting butterflies in the comments section.
They heeded his request … butterflies popped up all over the place. Fetty said Lauren loved butterflies, despite her insistence she was actually a mermaid.
As we reported … Lauren’s mother, Turquoise Miami, confirmed over the weekend Lauren had passed away. Turquoise posted on Instagram a Boomerang video of Lauren smiling in a swimming pool.
The cause of death has not been disclosed.
In a separate post … Turquoise addressed her co-parenting situation with Fetty, saying it had improved and that they “came to a better place” for the sake of Lauren.
She also said there are videos circulating where she complains about Fetty … but Turquoise was quick to add those videos are from 2017 to 2019. She implores fans to let Fetty mourn in peace.
