XXXTentacion put certain measures into place before his untimely death. A rep confirmed to ET there will be an open casket viewing at the event. "In deference to his family, friends, and loved ones and in light of further investigation, we ask that their privacy be respected at this time".
His mom, Cleopatra Bernard, posted a sonogram on social media, captioning it: 'He left us a final gift'. For instance, the day he was arrested, Williams wrote on Facebook: "Don't piss me off u will never know wats next".
XXXTentacion, born Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy, was shot in as he was leaving a motorsports dealership outside of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, just before 4 p.m. on Monday.
The document also says that X was leaving to get into his auto, when the SUV pulled in front of him to block him from leaving, and that's when the gunmen jumped out outside the motorcycle shop in Pompano Beach, Florida Monday.
Not too long after Dedrick Devonshay Williams was taken into police custody Wednesday night (Jun. 20) in Pompano Beach, Florida-a neighboring city south of Deerfield Beach-for his alleged involvement in the murder of rapper XXXTentacion, the tattoo artist's brother vehemently denied his involvement in the shooting.
"After a brief struggle, the victim is shot", said Detective John Curcio of the Broward County Sheriff's Office, in a sworn affidavit presented to a court in Florida.
Sadly enough, a couple of days ago it was also announced that XXXTentacion was about to become a dad as his unnamed significant girlfriend is expecting his child. The rapper's track, "Sad!", broke Taylor Swift's single-day streaming record on Spotify on Tuesday, amassing 10.4 million streams following his death, according to Billboard.
