Master P has finally learned what led to the death of his daughter Tytyana Miller earlier this year.
The No Limit Records founder announced on Instagram back in May that Tytyana had passed away, sharing a heartfelt post that additionally called mental illness and substance abuse “a real issue that we can’t be afraid to talk about.”
In June, the Los Angeles Police Department said (via TMZ) said that initial evidence supported a fatal overdose, as drug paraphernalia was uncovered at the scene, but that toxicology results would take time to process.
On Wednesday (November 2), the Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner confirmed that Tytyana Miller had indeed passed away at 29-years-old from accidental fentanyl intoxication on May 27 at a private residence (via PEOPLE).

Tytyana had previously opened up about her addiction battles in a 2016 episode of WEtv’s Growing Up Hip Hop. In a clip of the episode, Master P and his son Romeo Miller can be seen encouraging her to seek treatment.
“That trip really opened my mind to see how I would miss you the most because you were always here for me,” Tatyana said at the time. “I just thought that the trip stopped me from ever wanting to be in Hollywood seen with those celebrity friends. I feel like I don’t need to go to rehab. I feel like I could do good without rehab.”
Romeo Miller echoed his father’s sentiments in an Instagram post after Tytyana’s death that read: “Our family is dealing with an overwhelming grief for the loss of my little sister Tytana. We respectfully request some privacy so that our family can grieve.
“We appreciate all of the prayers, love, and support, and although this is sad times, I’m forever grateful for the memories I did have with my amazing sister. Love on your loved ones, life is short. The silver lining, I know she’s in a way better place and finally at peace. God Bless.”
In a July interview, Master P said going to Tytyana’s funeral was like going to his own funeral.
“Coming from where I come from, coming from poverty, you would think that you would outlive your kids and that was the mission, and I feel like going to my daughter’s funeral I feel like I went to my own funeral,” Master P said. “I don’t even wanna go to no more funerals.”
He continued: “My daughter had a lot of life left in her and she was a happy woman that knew that tomorrow she could do something better…my thing is anybody that’s watching this love your loved ones while they’re here because once you walk out that door you never know who’s gonna come back.”
Later in the interview, Master P said he’s trying to turn his grief into something constructive and announced a collaboration with ARJ Cares and other substance abuse recovery organizations to aid those suffering from addiction.
“I wanna help people that look like us, we wanna bring awareness to this,” Master P said. “My whole purpose now is: ‘I don’t know why you put me through this God, and I’m not gonna question you, but I’m gonna get out here and save millions. I’m gonna help, I’m gonna do something.”
