Fetty Wap revealed heartbreaking news Friday that his “twin” brother died.
“I love you lil bro my twin … R.I.P,” Fetty Wap, who’s real name is Willie Junior Maxwell II, captioned a photo of himself with his brother standing side by side at a children’s play place.
The 29-year-old “Trap Queen” artist apologized for having “failed” his brother, who he did not identify in the post. It’s unclear how the man died.

USA TODAY has reached out to Fetty Wap’s representatives for comment.
In now-deleted Instagram Stories, the “My Way” artist asked people to stop asking if he was OK, according to People and BET.
“I’m not OK,” Fetty Wap wrote.
The artist added that he doesn’t know what he’ll tell his nephew when he asks “why I ain’t make sure you was OK.”
The New Jersey born rapper rose to prominence in 2014 with his single “Trap Queen.” Fetty Wap received two Grammy nominations and won an MTV Video Music Award for the song.
He most recently released his latest mixtape “Trap & B” earlier this year.
Speaking with Trevor Noah for Interview Magazine, Fetty Wap said amid his fame and fortune it was important for him to go back and take care of his family.
“My mom, my father, my little sisters, and my brother — I don’t got that much family,” he said.
