Tentacion’s Friend Jocelyn Flores’ Family Charges Him With Using Her Suicide for Publicity!
A glance at XXXTentacion’s Spotify page will show that “Jocelyn Flores” is one of the late rapper’s most popular songs. Featured on his 2017 debut album, 17, the double-platinum-selling record named after a teenager who took her own life has become a signature track of the artist, but the girl’s family is now accusing him of exploiting her death for his own publicity.
According to the story surrounding “Jocelyn Flores,” Flores was a friend of X who committed suicide in May 2017. While the rapper and Flores did have a relationship, the two had only been talking to each other for 11 days, according to new details revealed by The Daily Beast.
X reportedly flew Flores to Florida to be with him and model for his Revenge fashion line. However, after an altercation between Jocelyn and another girl occurred when $7,000 went missing from X, he informed her that she could no longer live with him due to his probation (he had only been released from jail 61 days prior). Flores allegedly left with two members of X’s crew and went to a Hampton Inn, where she was found dead in the bathroom less than 24 hours later.
According to Flores’ family, they knew nothing of the song until her uncle heard the track in August 2017. “I couldn’t believe it,” he said. “I saw the thing. It said ‘Jocelyn Flores!’ On the thing. I was like, what the hell?”

The family adds that the only condolences they received from X came in a video he posted on social media where he said he wasn’t able to contact the family personally. Flo
“We just wanted to know how her last day was,” Ramirez explained. “That bothers me. I’m only interested in the last day. Please. Tell me whatever you want. What did she do on that particular day? What did she consume? How long has it been since you last saw her? Have you taken her to Universal Studios as promised? What exactly did you do with her? “How was her last day?”
“Jocelyn Flores” has sold over 2 million copies, and following the murder of XXXTentacion in June, the song re-entered the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at No. 19.
X was shot and killed outside Riva Motorsports in Deerfield Beach, Fla. on June 18. Four suspects have since been arrested and charged with murder, and are currently awaiting trial.
