Days after it was confirmed that Fetty Wap's 4-year-old daughter had tragically passed away, the musician took to Instagram Live to grieve with his fans.
Though Fetty Wap (real name Willie Maxwell II) didn't say much during the livestream, the support of those who tuned in seemed to comfort the devastated dad in just the right way.
As Radar previously reported, Lauren Maxwell – the youngest of the rapper's seven children – died recently. It's unclear when, but her mother, Turquoise Miami (Lisa), confirmed the news in a heartbreaking Instagram post on Sunday.
As for Fetty, he wiped away tears as he stared at all the emoji-filled love followers and viewers were sending him. "Man. Man. Thank y'all, yeah? That's love. I appreciate ya'll, for real," he said to the camera. "Damn. That's love. She'd be happy as hell."
"Thank y'all, yeah? I appreciate y'all," he went on, as his voice continued to tremble. He then held up a photo of Lauren that was in his hand, kissed it and smiled softly. "Look at my little twin right there."
"Will y'all do me a favor, though?" he asked. "For real. Y'all can do me a favor? Just post all butterflies. All butterflies. Shorty loved butterflies."
Back inside the car, Fetty looked at the photo again, held it to the camera and smiled. "Look at my little baby," he said with a sad laugh. "Look at my little twin right there. I love you."
The 30-year-old hip-hop star appeared to first reference his daughter's passing on Sunday, the day after his Rolling Loud show, when he wrote on Instagram, "Lolo daddy did that s--t last night for you baby girl."
Understandably, her mom is just as gutted.
Sharing the news with a one-second video of the happy little girl, smiling and playing in a swimming pool while wearing a pink bathing suit, Lisa wrote, "This is my amazing, beautiful, funny, vibrant, loving, talented, smart and hardheaded princess mermaid Aquarius. 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."
Lauren's mom also asked social media commenters to show her and Fetty respect by keeping their negativity over the grieving parents' past drama to themselves.
"The internet had very negative energy towards our child which bought me distress reading," she wrote in a separate post. "So please stop any negativity towards [Fetty]. Lauren love her daddy too just like she love me and he mourning hard just like me."
No other details have been released to the public about Lauren's passing.
