Juice Wrld's mom breaks silence on rapper’s untimely death

Last Modified: 9th Sep

Juice Wrld's family has spoken out for the first time since the rapper’s tragic death on December 8, 2019, just days after his 21 birthday.

The late budding artist’s mother Carmella Wallace, says, 

"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. 

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."

Juice Wrld rapped about drugs often which was not to promote using but instead to help those battling addiction.

Carmella ended her statement by thanking Juice's fans, friends, and family for their support during the incredibly difficult time. She said, “We know that Jarad's legacy of love, joy, and emotional honesty will live on."
