Nearly five year’s ago, XXXTentacion was senselessly murdered. His family can move forward in peace now that the three men involved were found guilty of killing him.
The late rapper’s mother, Cleopatra Bernard, told TMZ that justice was served and the verdict has helped bring some closure.
X’s family is grateful that the jury delivered what they were hoping for and appreciate the work of the prosecutors who saw the case through.
Bernard also thanks her late son’s devoted supporters who paid tribute and support following his passing. She says there was an outpour, both digital and physical.
However, she admits she’s not surprised by the case’s outcome, saying she went into court Monday expecting all three defendants would be convicted after nearly two weeks of deliberations.
She’s now glad that the gut-wrenching experience is over. She also spoke about Drake’s alleged involvement in X’s case, an allegation she says was a desperate ploy to raise doubt, and insisted she and her loved ones always knew who was responsible for her son’s death.
Michael Boatwright, Trayvon Newsome, and Dedrick Williams were found guilty of the murder of XXXTentacion. Another man admitted to being involved in the murder and testified against the men by offering the details of the murder.
