'She is my hero': Lil Bo Weep's father posts moving tribute after rapper's demise at 22
The YouTube star's father Matthew Schofield revealed that Lil Bo Weep struggled with depression, trauma, PTSD, and drug addiction
The Australian singer and YouTube star Lil Bo Weep aka Winona Lisa Green died on March 5, her father Matthew Schofield confirmed in a Facebook post. While her cause of death is still unknown, Matthew revealed that the 22-year-old struggled with depression, trauma, PTSD, and drug addiction.
Matthew began his tribute by writing: "This weekend we lost the fight for my daughter's life against depression, trauma, PTSD and drug addiction that we have been fighting since we got her back from America through emergency repatriation [Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade] but broken." He added, "She fought hard against her demons as we all did side-by-side next to her and picking up the broken pieces over and over again but she could not fight anymore and we lost her."
He went on sharing, "As her dad I am proud of her beyond words as she is my hero, my daughter and my best friend that I love so so much. She is no longer hurting now with the universe wanting their angel back." Matthew then asked his friends to let his family grieve in private. "A big part of me is lost at the moment but I ask respectfully that my close friends try not to ring me until I get someway through this," he pleaded, before ending the note, "ALWAYS IN MY HEART. I LOVE MY WINNIE. Lil Bo Weep."
Just last week, Lil Bo Weep opened up about her struggles in a video posted to her Instagram. In the video, she revealed that she had been "crying all day" over the loss of her child. She captioned the post: "btw im NOT high, I am heavily dosed on seroquel to avoid any psychosis from my CPTSD. Not only have I been mourning my child, I have recently found out my fertility has been affected by growing up with a severe eating disorder." She further shared, "If you so so so any sort of a ninja Cerner, I recommend to really think about what you’re doing to yourself because I may never be able to have a full term pregnancy or have a child of my own due to the way I treated my body."
Smrtdeath, the musical artist who collaborated with Lil Bo Weep on his 2020 track 'Far Away', also confirmed the news of the rapper's death. On Sunday, March 6, he posted a picture of him with the late raptress and captioned it, "Rest in peace Winona."
