XXXTentacion‘s murder has rocked fans and friends, and one of those most effected by the loss appears to be Lil Tay.

The 9-year-old social media star returned from a hiatus on Instagram to lament over the loss of X, who she described as a “father figure.”

“X you truly changed me ❤ you were there for me when everyone wanted me to fail, you were there to give me advice, you were there. As a father figure, when I don’t have one, you were here, FaceTiming me and calling me for hours when I’m down,” Tay wrote.
