Fetty Wap broke down crying on Monday as he addressed the death of his four-year-old daughter, Lauren Maxwell. 

Fetty - real name Willie Junior Maxwell II - begged his fans to flood social media with 'butterflies' because his daughter loved them, in an emotional video. 

The 30-year-old also thanked his followers for their supportive words following the tragic death of his daughter, which was announced over the weekend.

He also shared a photo of the child, who he shares with US dancer Turquoise Miami, with the caption:  'Hey mini me (My Twin)…. I love you to the moon and back forever and ever bestfriend.' 

Earlier, in a clip posted on Instagram, he told fans: 'Man. Man. Thank y'all, yeah? That's love. I appreciate ya'll, for real. Damn. That's love. She'd be happy as hell.'

The rapper was seen clutching a photograph of Lauren whom he called his 'little twin.'

'Thank y'all, yeah? I appreciate y'all. Look at my little twin right there. Will y'all do me a favor, though? For real. Y'all can do me a favor? Just post all butterflies. All butterflies. Shorty loved butterflies. Look at my little baby. Look at my little twin right there. I love you,' he said.

Turquoise announced the sad news on her Instagram account this weekend, but she did not reveal when or how Lauren died. 

DailyMail.com has reached out to Fetty's rep for comment. 

Alongside a short clip of Lauren in a swimming pool, Turquoise added 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 dancer wrote on her Instagram Story: 'It couldn't hurt Some of y'all to be a little bit more compassionate, you don't have to kick a man while he's down'.

It is believed the little girl passed in June but there has been no confirmation yet.

Following a performance at Miami's Rolling Loud festival last month, Fetty wrote on his Instagram Story: 'LoLo daddy did that s*** for you last night baby girl.' 

The rapper reportedly has a total of six children by five different mothers. Their names are Aydin, 10, Zaviera, 6, Khari, 5, Amani, 5, and Zy, born in 2018.

Fetty is believed to be single. In September 2019, he married model Leandra K. Gonzalez in a private ceremony but they split in March 2020. 

It has not been an easy year for Fetty.

In October, the My Way hitmaker took to social media to pay tribute to his brother, Twyshon Depew, after he was shot and killed in New Jersey aged 26.

 He wrote on Instagram: 'I love you lil bro my twin ... R.I.P ... I failed you bro I'm sorry ...

Mom of Fetty Wap's Late 4-Year-Old Asks Fans to Be 'More Compassionate' to Rapper After Tragedy

PEOPLE 04 August, 2021 - 10:00am

Turquoise Miami is speaking out in ex Fetty Wap's defense days after revealing that their 4-year-old daughter Lauren had died.

After sharing the devastating news in a heartbreaking Instagram post Saturday, Miami thanked followers for sending their condolences, saying on Monday night that the positive "energy is appreciated and felt."

Then, in a written message on her Instagram Story Tuesday morning, she cleared up misrepresentations of Fetty Wap as a father, explaining that their "co parenting had improved off [Instagram] and we came to a better place for Lauren."

"He became more financially and emotionally responsible for her," she said of the rapper. "He didn't post her the same way I didnt, because Lauren use to get a lot of disrespectful things said about her and I asked him not to."

"All that y'all need to know is Lauren loved her daddy and he loved her. She made him laugh with her crazy funny personality and she loved to be the center of attention and he loved to be her audience," the mother continued. "It couldn't hurt Some of y'all to be alittle bit more compassionate, you don't have to kick a man while he's down."

"Losing a child is as down as it gets," she added.

In an Instagram Live session Monday that was re-posted on Twitter afterward, Fetty Wap showed fans a photo of Lauren and asked them for a "favor:" to post all butterfly emojis since she "loved" butterflies.

A rep for Fetty Wap did not respond to PEOPLE's request for comment.

On Father's Day in June, Fetty Wap wrote on Instagram, "Pieces of my heart ❤️ ..... It's them over anything or anybody 👑." In addition to Lauren, Fetty Wap is also a father to five other children: Aydin, 10, Zaviera, 6, Khari, 5, Amani, 5, and Zy, 3.

Sharing a video of Lauren smiling in a pool on Saturday, Miami wrote in the Instagram 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 💔."

While the child's death was only just confirmed by her family this weekend, multiple reports from Rap-Up and Hot97 suggest Lauren actually died late June.

Following his performance at the Rolling Loud festival in Miami, Florida, last weekend, the "Trap Queen" rapper dedicated his set to his late daughter. "LoLo daddy did that s--- for you last night baby girl," he wrote on his Instagram Story at the time.

Fetty Wap speaks out after daughter’s death: ‘I love you to the moon and back’

The Independent 04 August, 2021 - 10:00am

The 30-year-old rapper, whose real name is Willie Junior Maxwell, said in an Instagram live video on Tuesday (3 August) that “she’s good, my baby’s happy now”, while showing a photograph of Lauren.

“My shorty,” the New Jersey rapper added before kissing the picture. “That’s my little twin right there,” he said.

The rapper also posted another photo of Lauren on his profile. The caption read: “Hey mini-me (My Twin) I love you to the moon and back forever and ever best friend.”

This gesture comes after the girl’s mom Turquoise Miami confirmed the tragic news of her death in an Instagram post on the weekend.

“This is my amazing, beautiful, funny, vibrant, loving, talented, smart, and hardheaded princess mermaid Aquarius,” she wrote. “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,” she added.

The post was accompanied by a video of Lauren playing in a swimming pool. The cause of her death has not yet been disclosed.

Fetty Wap had also dedicated his performance at the Rolling Loud music festival in Miami last month to Lauren.

“LoLo daddy did that s*** for you last night baby girl,” he wrote on his Instagram story at the time.

The “Trap Queen” singer is father to five other children – Aydin, 10, Zaviera, six, Khari, five, Amani, five, and Zy, who was born in 2018.
