While her passing was only recently made public, her death certificate notes that she died at her home in Riverdale, Georgia on June 24. 

In a touching video on his Instagram, Wap asked his fans to share emojis of butterflies, saying his daughter loved them. He also said Lauren loved mermaids. 

As previously reported, Lauren is the daughter of Wap and model Turquoise Miami née Lisa Pembroke. 

A mourning Miami also shared a post in her Instagram Story, writing, in part, “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.” 

Miami’s response was in reaction to fans sharing old videos of her criticizing the rapper and their co-parent relationship. 

“It couldn’t hurt some of y’all,” she added, “to be a little bit more compassionate, you don’t have to kick a man while he’s down losing a child is as down as it gets.” 

As previously reported, in an Instagram post on Saturday, Miami wrote, “This is my amazing, beautiful, funny, vibrant, loving, talented, smart and hardheaded princess mermaid Aquarius,” accompanied by a boomerang of young Lauren Maxwell playing in a swimming pool.

Wap — whose real name is Willie Maxwell II — had recently performed at the Rolling Loud festival in Miami. After his set, he wrote, “LoLo daddy did that s— for you last night baby girl,” in his Instagram story, according to People magazine. 

The rapper has five other children: Aydin, 10; Zaviera, 6; Khari, 5; Amani, also 5, and Zy, who was born in 2018.
