Lauren’s autopsy has since been completed, and results are expected to be released in the coming days.
The Sun reached out to a representative of Fetty Wap who declined to comment.
Fetty Wap and Lauren Maxwell’s mother, who is known under the name of Turquoise Miami, both paid tribute to their only child together in separate social media posts over the past week.
Turquoise Miami, whose real name appears to be Lisa, confirmed her daughter’s death in a heartbreaking Instagram post over the weekend.
The post showed the little girl smiling in the pool with the caption: “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💔.”
The heartbreaking Instagram post came after the rapper seemed to hint at Lauren’s death during a performance in Miami on July 25.
After the gig, he said: “LoLo daddy did that s*** for you last night baby girl.”
He then shared a video of him singing his hit-single Come My Way, with “Listen LoLo” scrawled across the screen.
However, he did not mention his daughter during his 20-minute set.
Reports started emerging last month that the rapper’s young daughter had passed away, however, no cause of death has been revealed.

Fetty, who was born Willie Junior Maxwell, is an American rapper, singer, and songwriter who rose to prominence when his 2015 single Trap Queen reached number two on the US Billboard Hot 10.
He was said to have been in a relationship with Turquoise around the time of Lauren’s birth.
While Turquoise, an American dancer and musician, isn’t frequently in the limelight, she shot to fame briefly during her relationship with Fetty.
In 2018, she released a song on Spotify, titled Trap B***h.
Turquoise, who is also known as Lisa, has previously called Fetty out on his alleged lack of parenting of Lauren, claiming the rapper had not provided adequate support for their daughter.
In an Instagram post, she claimed: “Y’all I’m finna book this flight so I can personally ask this n**** when he plans to pay child support or get his daughter cause it’s been two years and I’m curious.”
“I am no longer going to beg a n**** to be a dad to do all the things a dad is supposed to do.”
Fetty never responded to these claims.
Lauren is Fetty’s fifth child.
His daughter’s death comes just months after Fetty paid tribute to his late brother after he was shot and killed in New Jersey.
He uploaded a post featuring a picture of himself with Twyshon Depew, who he called his twin.
Fetty said: “I love you lil bro, my twin… RIP. I failed you bro I’m sorry.
“I keep calling ya phone and you won’t pick tf up and that s**t never ring 3 times now it’s straight to [voicemail] I love you lil bro I really thought I could get you out before I ever had to make a post like this lil bro like wtf.”
Depew, 26, was shot dead in Paterson last October, Page Six reported.
He was shot in the chest and died hours later.
It remains unknown if any suspects have been arrested in connection with Depew’s death.
