Juice WRLD’s Girlfriend Speaks Out For The First Time Since His Passing: He Loved Every Single Person That He Helped
Friends and family of late rapper Juice WRLD (real name Jarad Anthony Higgins) recently celebrated his short, yet impactful life at his homegoing service in Harvey, Illinois this past weekend. Just a week after his 21st birthday, Juice WRLD suffered an alleged drug-induced seizure at the Chicago Midway International Airport, resulting in his untimely death. His cause of death has not been determined yet.
His girlfriend and frequent companion, Alexia “Ally Lotti” Smith, recently broke her silence on his passing in front of an audience at the Rolling Loud Music Festival. Ally said:
“Jerad loved every single person that he helped on this earth. He literally loved every single one of you guys. There’s not a time that he had shown me any different love than he felt for you.”
“Like, he wants everyone to know that you need to take any negative thing in your life- he would tell you anytime he saw you – and change that into a positive situation. Change that to 999. You gotta keep that in your heart.”

As previously reported, Juice WRLD was rumored to have taken several pills while on his private plane just prior to his death. The FBI reportedly seized a bottle of Codeine and several suitcases of marijuana while searching the plane. Juice WRLD’s mother, Carmella Wallace, revealed that his battle with drug addiction had been a long one:
“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.”
Our thoughts and prayers are with the family, friends, and fans of Juice WRLD.
