Lauren’s mother Turquoise Miami confirmed the sad news via Instagram, while it appears Fetty acknowledged the tragedy during his Rolling Loud performance.
Fetty Wap‘s daughter Lauren Maxwell has sadly died at just 4-years-old. The 30-year-old rapper shared the little girl with ex Turquoise Miami, who confirmed the tragic news via Instagram on Sunday, August 1. “This is my amazing, beautiful, funny, vibrant, loving, talented, smart and hardheaded princess mermaid Aquarius,” Lauren’s mother began, sharing a short looped video of her smiling and laughing in a pool.
Lauren looked so sweet as she radiated warmth in the clip, wearing an adorable pink swimsuit with matching pink beads in her braids. “If you see this post scrolling by with her comment or just say to yourself ‘i love you LAUREN’ because they say that souls can feel your love #rip,” she signed off, with a broken heart emoji. The influencer and ex-girlfriend of Fetty archived any previous posts on her page, changing her bio to inform her followers she will not be responding to DMs at this time.

The 4-year-old was born to Fetty — née Willie Junior Maxwell — and ex-girlfriend Turquoise on Feb. 7, 2017. No cause of death has been stated at this time, however, HollywoodLife has reached out to representatives for the rapper for a statement.

Jason Momoa Says He’s “Terrified” of Wife Lisa Bonet
Jason Momoa knows for sure that “anything is f–king possible.”
“If someone says something isn’t possible,” the actor told Esquire in 2019. “I’m like, ‘Listen here, I married Lisa Bonet.'”
Their love story is indeed the stuff of divine manifestation, the actor having decided that Denise Huxtable was the moon of his life years before they actually met. But one night, there she was…
Suffice it to say, the future Aquaman didn’t belly flop when he had his chance, and he and Bonet have been happily paired off since 2005.
So, unlike the forbidding, ruthless, shirt-averse warrior he played on Game of Thrones, Momoa was already a fully domesticated family man, dedicated to the lady in his life and their children, no taming necessary.
His lack of availability might have crushed a few fans who thought they were discovering some new, untapped source of hopes and dreams when Khal Drogo invaded the screen in 2011, but the reality is so swoon-worthy, the disappointment proved fleeting.
He still tends to skip the shirt on occasion, but such is the way of the actor, who hails from Honolulu and whose first major TV role was on Baywatch Hawaii. Seriously, what’s a “shirt”? “It’s more comfortable for me,” Momoa quipped to E! News at Comic-Con in 2018.
He did, however, arrive fully clothed at his wedding. While Bonet was frequently referred to as his wife beforehand, and Momoa never made any effort to correct the assumption, the couple didn’t officially get married until October 2017, when they quietly swapped vows at the Topanga,

Nigeria’s track and field Olympics team takes a huge blow following the elimination of sprinter Blessing Okagbare over a positive drug test.
Okagbare, 32, produced a failed drug test for human growth hormones. In a press release provided by the Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU), said the 2008 Olympics long jump silver medallist is provisionally suspended for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
“Growth Hormone is a non-specified substance on the 2021 World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) Prohibited List and a provisional suspension is mandatory following an adverse analytical finding for such substance under the World Athletics Anti-Doping Rules,” stated the AIU.
Okagbare tested positive during an out-of-competition test taken on July 19. She was notified of her suspension this morning, while she was in Tokyo, just hours before this evening’s semi-finals of the women’s 100m, which she was set to compete in.
Okagbare breezed through her 100m heat on Friday, with a time of 11.05 seconds, qualifying her for Saturday’s semi-finals.
On Thursday (July 29), ESPN reported that the AIU determined that of a total of 20 athletes who have been banned from Olympic competition, 10 of them are from Nigeria. At the time, the Athletics Federation of Nigeria said, “It must be noted that no Nigerian athlete tested positive to prohibited substances.”
The AFN had already begun taking precautionary measures, as they appointed Professor Ken Anugweje as the head of the Medical and Anti-Doping Commission of the Federation.
Despite doing damage control, Okagbare’s test was already taken, and her Saturday morning results are another sting to Nigeria’s Olympic roster.
‘Buffy’ alum Sarah Michelle Gellar has stunned in a new swimsuit selfie, while joking about the struggles of bringing her kids to the beach.
Buffy The Vampire Slayer actress Sarah Michelle Gellar wore a black one-piece swimsuit in a gorgeous new snap. The 44-year-old was all smiles as she shared a new selfie, keeping it simple in a silver pendent necklace and delicate star earrings. “No one is full of more false hope then a parent that brings a chair to the beach. Or a book #weekend,” she hilariously captioned the photo. Reese Witherspoon dropped three flame emojis in the comments section while another fan joked, “Who wrote that? Mark Twain? Dorthy Parker? Anyway, I’m getting it on a T-shirt. I’ll get u one.”
The actress allowed her blonde tresses to fall just below her shoulders as she showed off her white nail polish and offered the camera a coy smile. It comes a few weeks after she was seen soaking up the sun while on a tropical getaway in Hawaii. Sarah totally stunned when she posed for a makeup-free selfie. “Aloha… no make up…. no worries (my happy place),” she captioned the June 30 Instagram post, which showed her rocking a one-shouldered black swimsuit.
Sarah also took to her IG story to share several snaps of the gorgeous local scenery, contrasted with the gloomy weather at home in California. She was joined by her actor hubby Freddie Prinze Jr for the getaway, along with their kids Charlotte Grace, 11, and Rocky James, 8. She and Freddie met when they were working on the hit 1997 film I Know What You Did Last Summer, and went on to star as Fred and Daphne in the 2002 mystery-comedy feature Scooby-Doo,

Hailey Bieber Gets Real About Skin Condition
Whether she’s walking the red carpet or stepping out for a coffee run, Hailey Bieber always serves up fabulous fashion.
But behind every head-turning look, there’s an expert orchestrating it all. Cue celebrity stylist Maeve Reilly, who frequently works with the 24-year-old model, Megan Fox, Ciara and many other superstars.
Luckily, the style expert isn’t keeping her fashion secrets to herself.
Maeve is spilling the tea to E! News about the unique approach Hailey takes when selecting an outfit, and if Justin Bieber ever weighs in. Plus, she’s sharing fun details about her new clothing line, The Local Love Club—which isn’t just about looking good, but feeling good, too.
When it comes to piecing together an ensemble, Maeve tells E! News that she and Hailey take inspiration from a few fashion powerhouses. “We’re both really inspired by Rihanna, always,” she shares, adding, “Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is a perfect example of a classic, sophisticated beautiful woman. Someone like [fashion editor] Christine Centenera, who’s all about basics and being effortless.”
The stylist notes that she and the California native revel in nostalgia and “look back to the ’90s.” But inspo aside, Maeve reveals that Hailey ultimately has more of an intuitive approach during their glam sessions.

As she describes, “With Hailey, it’s just a feeling. It’s like, ‘Does this feel like you?’ and ‘Does this feel right?’ It’s based on mood and what she has to do for that day.”
“She’s just incredible and it’s so collaborative,” the style expert explains. “For example,

Amid messy divorce proceedings with Nicole Young, rapper Dr. Dre was spotted out with a mystery woman in Los Angeles this week.
A year after his split from Nicole Young, Dr. Dre has been spotted out with a mystery woman. The rapper, real name Andre Young, 56, stepped out in Los Angeles on Thursday, July 29 and met up with a dark-haired woman in an orange dress ahead of the weekend.

Dr. Dre stepped out of an SUV in a casual black sweatshirt and matching sweatpants with stylish red and white stripes running down the side. The producer kept things comfortable and finished the look with some sneakers.
The sightings comes after the rapper was ordered to pay Nicole, 51, over $290,000 a month in spousal support following their split last June. After 24 years of marriage, the former lawyer filed for divorce from her rapper husband last summer, citing irreconcilable differences. The duo share two adult children, Truly, 20, and Truice, 24, together.
The two have since been battling it out in court over the validity of their prenuptial agreement, among other things. It’s been a contentious split, as Nicole has accused the producer of abuse. Per multiple reports from earlier this year, Nicole alleged that the hip-hop mogul “held a gun to my head” in court documents filed following the split.
In documents filed in the Superior Court of California, she said the “Still D.R.E.” rapper “verbally and emotionally decimated my personhood to the extent that I currently suffer from post-traumatic stress syndrome.” The rapper denied the allegations in the documents,

Get ready for a stellar evening of praise and worship as the 36th Annual Stellar Gospel Music Awards returns to its original roots in Nashville, Tennessee.
Hosted by Grammy-nominated gospel artists Jekalyn Carr and Tye Tribett, this year’s award ceremony will merge old school and new school talent spreading the word of God with electrifying performances and celebrating Black excellence all in one night.
Jonathan McReynolds, who once hosted the show, leads with eight nominations this year including “Male Vocalist of The Year,” “Contemporary Male of The Year,” and “Artist Of The Year.” There’s a four-way tie for the second most nominations held between Anthony Brown & group therAPy, Kierra Sheard, Maverick City Music, and Pastor Mike, Jr., including a nod each for “Artist Of The Year.”
BET correspondent and contributing writer Ty Cole spoke to Tribett, Carr, Stellar Awards founder Don Jackson, and Tamela Mann who chatted about what to expect at this year’s award ceremony, and how the artists have made a concerted effort to make the connection between traditional and nontraditional Christian music.
“I hope the audience and the viewers receive what we received that evening during our performance because I was nervous, but the Lord met us there,” said Mann, whose husband, David Mann was a presenter during the show. “It was such a great evening and the songs spoke to the heart because people need help nowadays with all that we’re going through. The song talks about help, mental health, and we hope that people grab those messages.”
