Fetty had not officially confirmed Lauren’s passing, however, last month he appeared to share a tribute to her.
The rapper posted an Instagram story following his performance at Miami’s Rolling Loud festival on Sunday evening.
“LoLo daddy did that s**t for you last night baby girl,” he wrote, accompanied by a butterfly, dove and heart emoji.
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.
FATHER OF SIX
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 U.S. 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 wrote: “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,” she added.
Turquoise is an American dancer and musician, who was believed to have been with Fetty from 2016 to 2017
It was not yet clear how or why Lauren passed away
Fetty never responded to these claims.
The rapper reportedly has at least six children by five different mothers. Lauren is Fetty’s fifth child.
Back in 2019, Fetty and his ex Alexis Skyy had a health scare with their one-year-old daughter Alaiya when she was rushed into emergency brain surgery to repair a malfunctioning shunt.
The parents asked fans to pray for the infant, who was born prematurely.
According to reports from the Mail Online, she suffers from hydrocephalus, a medical condition that causes bleeding and fluid in the brain.
Skyy, a reality star, had asked fans for support on social media ahead of Alaiya undergoing surgery.
‘Prayers please for my baby,’ she posted along with praying and heart emojis.
Alexis and Fetty split up in 2016, around the time he started dating Turquoise Miami.
While Fetty and Turquoise are both yet to say anything publicly about their daughter’s death, Fetty took to Facebook at the time to post a broken-hearted emoi.
On an account on which he goes by the name ZooVier Jordan – the name of his “alter-ego”, Fetty posted “June 24th” paired with the emoji.
The original post on June 26 had been repeated on June 27, then June 28.
Dozens of fans and followers commented on the post, many to express their condolences, and others to berate Fetty for his alleged lack of parenting of the child.
