The girlfriend of late popular American rapper XXXTentacion is said to be expecting his baby various sources are reporting.
His mother Cleopatra Bernard also confirmed the news via her Instagram page where she posted an ultrasound photo with the caption: “He left us a final gift.”
The rapper's personal account also posted a message which said: “May the new baby know his father was a legend.”
Tentacion died in hospital from a gunshot wound inflicted on him on Monday, 18 June, 2018. He had visited a bank shortly before the shooting and possibly withdrew cash to buy a motorcycle. Perhaps this is why he was attacked.
A 22-year-old man named Dedrick D. Williams was arrested in connection to the shooting. Police also think the shooting was a robbery gone wrong since the suspects made off with a Louis Vuitton bag that was in his car.
Eyewitness reports say the budding rapper was killed by two men so it is unclear if police are still looking for a second suspect.
Several Nigerian musicians including Davido, Burna Boy and Jidenna all took to their social media handles to mourn Tentacion’s passing.
