Juice WRLD’s girlfriend, Ally Lotti, has broken her silence on the rapper’s death, and she did it on stage in front of all of his fans.
Lotti took the stage at the “Rolling Loud Festival” in Los Angeles Sunday, where she addressed the crowd during a segment where musicians were paying respect to the rapper.
Ally, fighting back tears, told the crowd “I just wanted to come out here and let everyone know that Jarad loved every single person that he helped on this earth,” she told the crowd at Banc of California Stadium.
She added, “He literally loved every single one of you guys. There is not a time when he had shown me any different love than he felt for you.”
Ally reminded the crowd that even though the death of the 21-year-old rapper is hard to deal with…when he was alive he was a champion for turning negativity in your life into positive situations.
“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,” she said.
She continued, “Change that to 999. You’ve got to keep that in your heart.”
In a great moment…she asked the crowd to repeat the phrase “999” and the entire group gathered at the festival yelled it back to her “999!”
Ally posted many heartfelt messages about her BF over the last few months, one of the last ones saying, “blessed to b part of your wrld. you’re asleep right next to me and i can’t help but sit here admiring how you blow me away every single second of each day. i’m forever grateful for yu Jarad.”
Juice posted a message before his death on Instagram about Ally and his mother, saying, “The two most beautiful important women in my life, KILLING AND DYING FOR YALL. Angels on earth exist I know it.”
Juice’s mom issued a statement following his death, “We loved Jarad with all of our hearts and cannot believe our time with him has been cut short,” she said in the statement. “As he often addressed in his music and to his fans, Jarad battled with prescription drug dependency.”
She added, “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.”
Several artists paid tribute to the fallen rapper on stage during the festival including Trippie Red who made the crow repeat, “I will not use drugs.”
