Fetty Wap has been having great success in the rap game. As time goes by, more and more people are curious about his personal life, and some fans notice that he only has one eye. Despite his single eye, he’s still managed to be successful. Some are wondering what happened with the other one that left him only having one?
“When I was little, I had gotten into a little accident and it gave me congenital glaucoma in both of my eyes,” Fetty Wap explained during an interview with DJ Self on Shade 45.
Although there were some rumors suggesting that Fetty Wap’s eye was lost in a shooting, it was actually an accident when he was still quite young. Damage to the optic nerve caused by an infection or trauma can prevent your eye from sending out images to the brain, which could lead you into a state of blindness.
The rapper added: “The doctor saved one. I was blessed to still have my vision. That’s it. That’s the story.”
When asked about the one eye, Fetty made it clear that he’s not bothered by this. “I’m probably one of the first rappers/singers to come on the scene with one eye and be comfortable with it,” he said.
Although he’s perfectly content with his single eye, Fetty does say that other people sometimes have strong reactions when they see it for the first time. “A lot of people are judgmental, but it’s all on how you show yourself to the people,” he explained. “That’s probably one of the main things people won’t know about me until they see me.”
Fetty got a prosthetic eye during his teen years following the accident but he quickly became comfortable with his natural appearance and decided not to wear it.
Fetty’s four-year-old daughter has recently passed away, Lauren Maxwell. Lauren’s mother, Turquoise Miami announced the sad news on Instagram. “This is my amazing, beautiful, funny, vibrant, loving, talented, smart, and hardheaded princess mermaid Aquarius,” she wrote. “If you see this post scrolling by with her comment or just say to yourself ‘I love you LAUREN’ because they say that souls can feel your love #rip.”
The post did not include details about when and how Fetty’s daughter had died. Despite the death of his daughter, Fetty has not commented on her passing or revealed any more information about how she died.
