Fetty Wap appears to have responded following the news that his 4-year-old daughter, Lauren, has passed away.
The 30-year-old reportedly took to Instagram Live, per Hollywood Unlocked, to chat with fans after the sad news emerged. The clip started with the "My Way" hitmaker standing outside and wiping away tears as "Get You The Moon" by Kina played in the background.
"I appreciate y’all for real," he tearfully said. "That’s love, she’d be happy as hell."
After kissing a photo of Lauren, the rapper asked his fans to post "all butterflies," in tribute to her as a favor for him: "Show me a lot of butterflies."
He also showed a picture of his little girl to the camera while sitting in a car. "My little baby," he giggled.
Lauren’s passing was announced by her mother, Lisa Pembroke, who goes by Turquoise Miami online, on Sunday, August 1.
"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💔," Pembroke captioned a clip of her daughter playing in a pool.
Pembroke came to her baby daddy’s defense when negative comments popped up about the "Trap Queen" singer. "The internet had very negative energy towards our child which bought me distress reading, so please stop any negativity towards him," she pleaded. "Lauren love her daddy too just like she love me and he mourning hard just like me."
Fetty, who was born Willie Junior Maxwell II, appeared to make note of the tragedy last week when he wrote "Lolo daddy did that s**t last night for you baby girl" on his Instagram Story after his Rolling Loud set.
Fetty is also Dad to children Zaviera, Khari and Aydin. Lauren's cause of death has not been revealed.
