"He left us a final gift">
The mother of murdered rapper XXXTentacion has revealed that he was expecting a child at the time of his death.
The 20-year-old, real name Jahseh Onfroy, was shot dead on Monday afternoon as he left a motorcycle shop in Florida. A 22-year-old man has since been arrested in connection with his death.
As the music world continues to react to his death, Onfroy’s mother has now revealed that he was expecting a child at the time of his death.
Posting on Instagram, his mother shared a photo of a pregnancy sonogram.
“He left us a final gift”, she captioned the photo.
Representatives for the star have also confirmed the pregnancy.
This weekend, it’s expected that a charity event will take place in Onfroy’s name, which was his “final wish”.
After an impromptu memorial gathering for XXXTentacion – which attracted somewhere between 300 and 500 fans – was shut down by police in LA this week, a pair of tweets sent from XXXTentacion’s Twitter account overnight has now confirmed that a “charity event” will still be held in the rapper’s name this weekend.
“Charity event is still happening this Sunday in Florida. this was Jahseh’s final wish. More details soon,” the first tweet read, before a further clarification: “Posted on behalf of his mother, for any wondering”.
The Broward County, Florida rapper Ski Mask the Slump God said earlier this week that he wanted to take the lead with the charity event – posting on Instagram that he wanted to make it “a day of remembrance” to XXXTentacion
