Juice WRLD’s mother is speaking out days after her son’s tragic death and is warning others about drug addiction.
According to reports, the rapper’s mother, Carmella Wallace, released a statement addressing her son’s (real name: Jared Higgins) death.
She said, "We loved Jarad with all of our hearts and cannot believe our time with him has been cut short. 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. We know that Jarad's legacy of love, joy and emotional honesty will live on."
