XXXTentacion’s Girlfriend Gives Birth To Late Rapper’s Son
Jenesis Sanchez, the girlfriend of deceased rapper XXXTentacion, has given birth to a baby boy named Gekyume Onfroy – seven months after he was shot and killed in Florida.
The child was born on Saturday night.
Shortly after he was killed on June 18, 2018, it was revealed that XXXTentacion and Jenesis were expecting their first child together.
However, a press statement was released by his family in the late hours of January 26.
The family statement says the late musician, whose real name was Jahseh Onfroy, “specifically chose” the name Gekyume “for his first born son”.
“We’re happy to confirm that Baby and Mother are healthy.”
“Gekyume’s name is derived from a word X created prior to his passing, which means ‘a different state’ or ‘next’ universe of thought. XXXTentacion specifically chose this name for his first born son; his family is honored to fulfill his wish and shower baby Gekyume with love.”
Although four men have been arrested and charged with first-degree murder with a firearm and armed robbery with a firearm, XXXTentacion’s personal life was plagued by allegations of domestic violence.
He was facing 15 felony charges at the time of his death, including aggravated battery of a pregnant woman in 2016, domestic battery by strangulation and witness tampering.
