As it was previously reported, Jarad went into cardiac arrest shortly before 2:00 am at the Chicago airport and was subsequently rushed to the hospital. Authorities and medical professionals announced he had died shortly thereafter.
The Chicago Tribune reported that the rapper had suffered a seizure and was bleeding from his mouth. Currently, it’s not known how he died exactly, but an autopsy is scheduled for Monday claims Cook County’s medical office.
The police confirmed there was no suspicious behavior or foul play suspected, and the other passengers have been cooperating with the investigation. His girlfriend, Ally Lotti, was on the same private jet as well, and she posted a video to her IG story on Saturday night.
In a post on Twitter earlier this week, Ally commemorated the singer’s 21st birthday, stating that it was his second birthday with her and she was grateful to be with him. “There is not a soul that could match your energy, ily ‘endlessly,” she wrote.
Since Juice WRLD passed away, there has been an outpouring of support and messages from other members of the hip-hop community, including individuals outside of it, such as Jeffrey Star and Ellie Goulding.
Hip-hop fans know this is the third major rising star in the community who has died in the last two years, following the tragic and unexpected passing of Mac Miller last year in September, Lil’ Peep in the previous year, 2017, and also XXXTentacion, who was shot and killed outside of a motorcycle shop in 2018.
Both Lil’ Peep and Mac Miller died from lethal combinations of drugs including the opiate crisis impetus, fentanyl.
