Juice Wrld’s devastated girlfriend paid tribute to the late rapper one week after his death.
Ally Lotti appeared on stage at the Rolling Loud festival in Los Angeles on Sunday and shared an emotional message with attendees.
“I just wanted to come out here and let everyone know that Jarad loved every single person that he helped on this earth. He literally loved every single one of you guys,” she said, referring to the “Lucid Dreams” rapper’s real name, Jarad Higgins. “There is not a time when he had shown me any different love then he felt for you. He wants everyone to know that you need to take any negative, any negative thing in your life, he would tell you every time he saw you and change that to a positive situation.”
Juice Wrld died on Dec. 8 following a seizure during a raid on his jet after it landed at Chicago’s Midway Airport. He was reportedly given Narcan by agents who assumed he was overdosing on Percocet.
Though no official cause of death has been determined yet, the late rapper’s family believes his struggles with drug addiction contributed.
“We loved Jarad with all of our hearts and cannot believe our time with him has been cut short,” Juice Wrld’s mother, Carmella Wallace, said in a statement to TMZ. “As he often addressed in his music and to his fans, Jarad battled with prescription drug dependency.”
She continued, “Addiction knows no boundaries and its impact goes way beyond the person fighting it. Jarad was a son, brother, grandson, friend and so much more to so many people who wanted more than anything to see him defeat addiction. We hope the conversations he started in his music and his legacy will help others win their battles as that is what he wanted more than anything.”
