Fetty Wap has been mourning the loss of his 4-year-old daughter Lauren Maxwell on social media over the last several days, although he didn’t reveal any details about her passing.
According to TMZ, Maxwell died at her home in Riverdale, Georgia on June 24 from a fatal cardiac arrhythmia due to complications of congenital cardiac anomalies, a heart defect she’d had since birth.
But Maxwell’s mother Lisa Pembroke, who goes by Turquoise Miami on social media, is furious at both TMZ and Hollywood Unlocked for prematurely announcing the cause of death. On Thursday (August 5), Miami fired off a hostile Instagram post, slamming both outlets for digging up her daughter’s death certificate.
“Her death certificate says cardiac arrhythmia due to a congenital heart defect,” she wrote in the since-deleted post. “BUT THAT IS NOT THE FULL CAUSE OF HER DEATH THAT IS WHY THE AUTOPSY HASN’T COME BACK! HOW DARE YALL GO STEAL MY CHILDS DEATH CERTIFICATE AND ANNOUNCE THE CAUSE OF DEATH BEFORE ANYBODY WAS READY. THERE IS A REASON WHY! HER AUTOPSY ISN’T BACK YET ASSHOLE @TMZ_TV @hollywoodunlocked.”

Turquoise Miami continued blasting both outlets in the caption with, “THE MOST DISRESPECTFUL SHIT YALL COULD EVER DO TO A HUMAN BEING @hollywoodunlocked @tmz_tv
“I hope if y’all even met with this type of situation that people show y’all the same disregard that y’all 2 blog owners have shown me ! And that have the audacity to PUT MY GOVERNMENT NAME that has not been on the internet, on the Internet DO YALL SMOKE CRACK !?”
But Maxwell’s mother wasn’t finished there and soon took her frustration to her Instagram Stories.
“I’m tired of my privacy being invaded,” she continued. “I’m tired of people lying on my child. I’m tired of people reporting lies about my child. Y’all love breaking news so bad but this is my life and it’s me without my daughter not one of y’all! I feel the loneliness every night not none of y’all! Y’all so fuckin thirsty to report on a 4 year old. This is my trauma that is why I posted and moved HOW I FELT COMFORTABLE.”
She then confirmed Hollywood Unlocked removed the story, while TMZ hasn’t. She now accuses the outlet of changing the timestamp on the article to make it look like they just posted it.
“Ur www.tmz.com article has been sitting there since 1am according to the article time and date,” she said. “So stop playing innocent. Y’all posted about her death at 1 am not 9:49am before ANYBODY DISCLOSED HER DEATH. And enough blogs took it where I became aware of your article through @hollywoodunlocked.”
As for Fetty Wap, he shared an emotional video via Instagram earlier this week asking his followers to post some butterfly emojis for his daughter. He then shared a photo of Maxwell to his Instagram with the caption, Hey mini me (My Twin) I love you to the moon and back forever and ever best friend.” He has yet to comment on Miami’s allegations.
