Just minutes after rapper XXXTentacion was shot and killed outside of a motorcycle dealership in Miami, the music community took to social media to mourn the loss. He was dubbed "an inspiration" by many, but there was one person who was noticably distraught over his death. The "Cash Me Outside" girl, Danielle Bregoli, shared a photo of XXXTentacion on Instagram and a heartbreaking video of him on her Instagram story.
To say these two were friends is an understatement. Judging by Danielle's Instagram story, they were more like brother and sister and cared about each other very deeply. In the video, XXXTentacion can be heard telling Danielle, "I was wrong. I was wrong. I'm not afraid to admit it. I was wrong, I care about your emotions, I was wrong." While it's unclear what he was owning up to, the 15-year-old said that the pair did fight a lot, but they always made up.
Unfortunately, their last conversation didn't end on a good note. "Yesterday, I lost someone very important to me. X was not only a close friend, but he was [also] an inspiration," she wrote on Instagram. "He gave me the best advice, and was always there for me when I needed him. Even when we would argue, or he would call me yelling and mad or disappointed because I did some dumb sh-t, he would always say, 'Ight, I love you, mamas,' before he hung up."
Danielle continued, "The feeling of him being gone kills me. He would always be one call away, and I hate the thought that when I'm in the need to talk to him, when I'm upset, he won't be here to tell me everything's gonna be OK. The last call I had with X ended with me saying, 'I don't ever wanna talk to you again,' and nothing is killing me right now more than that."

Yesterday I lost one someone very important to me. x was not only a close friend but he was a inspiration. He gave me the best advice and was always there for me when I needed him. Even when we would argue or he would call me yelling and mad or disappointed because I did some dumb shit he would always say “Ight I love you mamas” before he hung up. The feeling of him being gone kills me. He would always be one call away. And I hate the thought that when I’m in the need to talk to him when I’m upset he won’t be here to tell me everything’s gonna be okay. Bc of that dumb Trippie and 69 shit unfortunately the last call I had with x ended with me saying “i don’t ever wanna talk to you again” and nothing is killing me right now more than that. And the crazy thing is Sunday night I had the urge to call him and I forgot. Then yesterday afternoon I plugged my phone in in the car and randomly “sad” came on then my phone buzzed i looked down and I had got the message saying he passed away. I didn’t know what to say and my mind couldn’t process it. I just couldn’t believe he was gone and I still can’t #ripxxxtentacion
The feisty star went on to say that she actually wanted to reach out to the rapper the day before his death, but she forgot. It was only when Danielle plugged her phone in on Monday that she got a message saying XXXTentaction had died. Danielle admitted that her mind "couldn't process" the news, and actually still "can't believe" that he is gone.
As of now, an investigation surrounding XXXTentacion's death is still underway. It's unclear if the murder was premeditated or if this was a robbery as a gunman was reportedly seen taking a Louis Vuitton bag from the car after the shooting.
