AsianDaBrat has spoken out after the death of her ex-boyfriend, the Chicago rapper King Von.
Dallas-born Asian Da Brat, who traded under the stage name Asian Doll until 2019, published a cryptic tweet after Von’s death hit the headlines on Friday. “I wanna die 2 Shid it feel like I’m already to be dead”, she wrote together with emoticons with broken hearts and peace signs.
The Asians Da Brat and Von were a couple for a while before they broke up in a romantic way in August. In the months that followed, however, they stayed close, and in early October fans thought the couple would reconcile again after Von posted a series of tweets about being in love. Asian Da Brat also wrote a tweet in October in which she referred to Von as her “husband. However, this was deleted after a picture Von posted on October 5 in his Instagram Stories, in which he claimed that he was “still single.
Despite their separation, AsianDaBrat fans still flooded her with condolences on social media after they learned of Von’s death.
“Asian I kno its nothing nobody can really say to you that’s gonna make this time easier for you. I just want to say that I am very sorry you lost, he loved u Asian and he will watch over you, make him proud, keep his name alive, he will live on through you, his family, his fans, his friend,” one fan wrote in response to Asian Da Brat’s tweet on Friday.
