Turquoise Miami, the mother of Fetty Wap’s late 4-year-old daughter, has responded after TMZ revealed their child’s cause of death. On Wednesday (Aug. 5), the outlet reported that Lauren tragically passed away due to complications from an irregular heartbeat. However, Turquoise said on social media, that’s not the full story.
“Her death certificate says fatal cardiac arrhythmia due to congenital heart defect BUT THAT IS NOT THE FULL CAUSE OF HER DEATH THAT’S WHY THE AUTOPSY HASN’T COME BACK,” Turquoise wrote on her Instagram Story in response to the article.
The grieving mom also accused the outlet of stealing Lauren’s death certificate.
“How dare y’all go steal my child’s death certificate and announce the cause of death before anybody was ready. There is a reason why!” she added.
As reported by REVOLT, Lauren tragically passed away on June 24. According to her death certificate obtained by TMZ, she died at her family’s home in Riverdale, Georgia.
Turquoise confirmed her daughter’s death in a heartfelt Instagram post on Saturday (July 31).
“This is my amazing, beautiful, funny, vibrant, loving, talented, smart and hardheaded princess mermaid Aquarius,” she wrote in the post. “If you see this post scrolling by with her comment... Just say to yourself, ‘I love you LAUREN,’ because they say that souls can feel your love #RIP.”
“I love you Lauren!” she added
Fetty also shared a touching tribute to his daughter and posted a photo of Lauren on Instagram. “Hey mini me (My Twin),” he wrote. “I love you to the moon and back forever and ever best friend.”
Taking to Instagram Live earlier this week, the “Trap Queen” rapper spoke through tears while remembering his daughter. He showed fans a photo of Lauren that he keeps with him and asked followers to comment butterfly emojis under his posts as a way to honor her.
“You know shorty loved butterflies,” he said choked up.
