How did Fetty Wap’s daughter Lauren die? Baby mama Turquoise Miami mourns 4-year-old on Insta
Fetty Wap dedicated his July 31 Rolling Loud performance to his daughter Lauren Maxwell. This was shortly before his baby mama Turquoise Miami shared an emotional message hinting at her death on social media.
It's worth noting that Wap, real name Willie Junior Maxwell II, has been away from social media for a while now. However, his appearance at Rolling Loud did not go unnoticed as he ensured that fans had a good time. All along, they hadn't an inkling that the perfomance was dedicated to his late daughter.
Some thought Fetty Wap was referring to his daughter Aaliya, who he shares with ex-girlfriend Alexis Skyy. Aaliya had to undergo emergency brain surgery in 2019. However, it later emerged that the rapper was talking about Lauren, not Aaliya. Shortly after, his baby mama Turqupise hinted that their daughter had tragically died.
“This is my amazing, beautiful, funny, vibrant, loving, talented, smart, and hardheaded princess mermaid Aquarius," Turquoise wrote, sharing a clip of her beloved daughter on Instagram. "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.”
The cause of death is yet to be established. Fetty Wap posted an Instagram story about dedicating his performance to little Lauren. “LoLo daddy did that s–t for you last night baby girl," the rapper wrote.
Fans inundated social media with messages of love and support, with some unable to digest how the rapper was able to perform after his daughter had just died. "Fetty Wap daughter died at 4yrs old no one should have to bury their child. That’s literally my biggest fear," one tweeted.
"Shout out to everyone at rolling loud who went crazy for fetty wap after his daughter died, he dedicated the performance to her," another wrote.
"Fetty Wap daughter passed ? Idk how tf he’s performing man I wouldn’t even function damn," a comment read.
"Prayers to fetty wap and turquoise. Looking at my own daughters as I write this, I can’t even imagine …that sh*t would destroy me," another added.

Lauren Maxwell was just four years old at the time of her death. She was Fetty Wap's fifth child, born on February 7, 2017. The rapper has five other children. He welcomed Aydin in April 2011 with ex girlfriend Ariel Reese. He is currently 10 years old and lives with his mother.
Fetty welcomed his second child Zaviera in 2015 with then girlfriend Lezhae Zeona. She is currently six years old. The rapper's third child with ex-girlfriend Elaynna, named Amani, came into this world in 2016. The rapper also welcomed Khari Barbie with ex-girlfriend Masika Kalsyha the same year. In 2018, Fetty welcomed Zyheir, his sixth and youngest child with ex-girlfriend Lezhae.
Turquoise reportedly came across several posts that questioned Fetty Wap's parenting following the announcement of their daughter's death. The pair has previously faced child support related issues, but Turquoise took to Instagram stories to defend Fetty Wap. “The internet had very negative energy towards our child which bought me distress reading," she wrote. "So please stop any negativity towards him. Lauren love her daddy too just like she love me and he mourning her just like me.”
