Danniella Westbrook shared on Instagram a heartbreaking tribute to the late rapper Hypo – who was good friends with her son Kai.
The 39-year-old musician, whose real name is Lamar Jackson, was critically injured in the early hours of Friday morning after being stabbed in the chest at a Jubilee party.
An autopsy revealed that the rapper died of ‘severe trauma to the chest’ following the tragic incident.
Laurie John-Phillip, also 32, from Enfield, has been charged with murder and possession of a one-sided article.
BBC News confirmed that he will appear at Barkingside Magistrates Court after being charged.
On Monday, former EastEnders star Danniella took to Instagram to pay tribute to the late rapper.
In her posts, the former actress seems to confirm that her son, Kai Jenkins, 25, is ‘good friends’ with the music star.
The 48-year-old described Hypo as ‘one of the nicest guys she’s ever known’ in a series of emotional Instagram stories.
“What a good friend Kai is, love and respect for each other will always mean the world,” Danniella wrote.
“Rest in peace, honey,” she added.
Former actress Sam Mitchell also paid tribute to the late rapper as she apparently brought a bouquet of flowers to the site of his death.
Danniella filmed herself carrying a bouquet of flowers as she told her son’s late friend to ‘rest in peace’.
According to BBC News, Hypo was treated by paramedics after allegedly receiving a stabbing stab that flared up after the party in Woodford Green, east London.
The rapper was later pronounced dead at the scene.
Hypo previously dated singer Emeli Sande in 2017 before the couple decided to split a year later.
The couple became romantic after Emeli divorced her ex-husband Adam Gouraguine in 2014.
Mirror has reached out to Danniella’s rep for further comment on this story.
