The American Singer, Rapper, and Songwriter XXXTentacion, born Jahseh Dwayne Ricardo Onfroy, is a popular name amongst the youth of the globe. He collaborated with the clothing line Revenge for which he needed models and was looking to launch fresh faces.
He found a girl named Jocelyn Flores, who was 16 years at that time, from Twitter and offered her to model for his clothing line which she accepted. Along with her, the rapper had chosen another girl to feature for his clothing line as well.
The two girls were flown to Florida at the singer’s place and stayed there while he was reportedly away for some function which he attended with his cousin. When he came back to his place of residence, he found that the money he left in a bag back in his room was missing. The amount was reportedly said to be around 7000 US dollars and was kept in the bag that the singer left in his room in the presence of the two girls in his house.
Reportedly, Flores and the other girl started accusing each other of the theft but XXXTentacion found it difficult to believe either of them and ended up terminating both the offers he had given to the girls. The girls were to be flown back to their places and he had sent two men of his team with Flores to accompany her with the departure.
