Fetty Wap is remembering his 4-year-old daughter Lauren Maxwell with a touching tribute on social media.
The “Trap Queen” rapper honored his “mini me” by posting a beaming photo of her via Instagram on Tuesday (Aug. 3). “Hey mini me (My Twin),” he captioned the post with heart and butterfly emojis. “‘ I love you to the moon and back forever and ever bestfriend. ‘”
He also went on Instagram Live to celebrate her life, calling her “my shorty” and kissing her photo that he was holding up. The 30-year-old artist also encouraged his followers in the emotional video to post butterflies in the comments section because she loved them so much even though “she sweared she was a mermaid,” he concluded with a lighthearted comment.
Lauren’s mother, Turquoise Miami, broke the heartbreaking news of Lauren’s death on Saturday by sharing a short clip of her daughter flashing her signature smile while swimming in a pool. “This is my amazing ,beautiful , funny , vibrant, loving ,talented , smart and hardheaded princess mermaid Aquarius,” she wrote. “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.”
The cause of her death is unknown.
The weekend before last, the rap veteran wrote on his Instagram Story that he dedicated his Rolling Loud Miami performance to his late daughter. “Lolo daddy did that sh– for you last night baby girl,” he wrote followed by the butterfly, dove and heart emojis.
Lauren was Fetty’s only child with Miami. He has five other children: Aydin, 10; Zaviera, 6; Khari, 5; Amani, 5; and Zy, 3. He posted up with all six of his children on Instagram for Father’s Day in June, captioning the slideshow, “Pieces of my heart ….. It’s them over anything or anybody.”
