Juvenile Didn't Attend Daughter's Funeral to Avoid Media Attention


Juvenile


Juvenile was a no show at her daughter's funeral Saturday, March 8 in James Island, South Carolina, because he didn't want to divert attention away from the ceremony with further media attention.

The funeral for Jelani, the 4-years-old daughter of rap star Juvenile, was held in South Carolina, Saturday, March 8 with a reported 500 attendants. Though so, the rapper himself was a now show at the funeral.

Explaining on Juvenile's absence from the funeral, a spokesman for him explained that the rap star decided to skip the funeral to avoid media attention that would divert attention from mourning and celebrating the life of his daughter. No further explanation being made public, except that Jelani's mother Joy Deleston, 39, and her older sister Micaiah, 11, were all mourned together on the funeral, took place in James Island, South Carolina.

Jelani, her mother Gwinnett County Sheriff's Deputy Joy Deleston, and her half-sister Micaiah were shot to death by Deleston's 17-years-old son Anthony Tyrone Terrell Jr. on February 28. Their bodies were found later that night in their Lawrenceville, Georgia home.

Anthony, who's a Central Gwinnett High School sophomore, has recently being held in the DeKalb County Jail and is booked on three counts of murder and three counts of aggravated assault.

Juvenile himself has kept a low profile during the ordeal, with his manager Aubrey Francis said that he was still trying to cope with the death of Jelani. "It really shocked him and devastated him to the point where I've never seen him before," Francis said last week. "Right now he is relaxing and trying to grasp everything of what has happened."
