On Saturday rapper Juvenile's daughter, Jelani, 4, her mother Joy Deleston, 39, and sister, Micaiah, 11, were all quietly laid to rest in James Island, South Carolina.
But MediaTakeOut.com has exclusively learned that Juvenile, whose real name is Terius Gray, did not attend the funeral. No explanation was given as to why he didn't attend.
As MediaTakeOut.com reported to you last week Jelani, her mother and sister were all allegedly murdered by her brother Anthony Tyrone Terrell Jr. He's been charged with 3 counts of murder and aggravated assault and is being held without bond at the DeKalb County jail.
let this man mourn in his own way...this is a terrible loss, to lose your child...he doesn't have to explain his actions (or inactions in this case) to anyone
no one can judge, no one knows a man breaking point
Thats Fu(ked up. And to think we sent out Condolences to him.
that a shame
My prayers go out to him and his family. Such a tragic accident.
He probably couldn't take it.
2 PAINFUL I SUPPOSE
That's a *** shame!
Juvenile probably paid that kid to kill them. Thats how bad he wanted out of their lives. L.O.S.E.R
He had his reasons,im sure he'd been there 2 identify,maybe he said his goodbyes there.
Maybe it was too hard for him...I hope that was the reason...
MissLouisiana needs to *** the *** up
hope this isn't true!...the fact that he supposedly wasn't part of their lives is bad enough but to not even go to their funeral to give them their final goodbye????????..wow, i don't know how ppl like him can live with themselves...R.I.P!
Sparx is another dumb 1 too
He looks like he's about to cry.
So sad. I don't blame him. I hate funerals, it's gotta be hard for it to be your little girl.
I think he still should've paid his last respects
he prolly couldn't withstand it...i know exactly how he feels...what he's goin through is really hard to cope with, i understand him completely and im goin to still give him my condolences...
no parent wants to bury a child...
in all due respect to this delicate topic,i must say i can't help not notice some new, cute girls posting on here...hello pretty ladies...@certified banger & sparrx..if those are real pix
Juvenile probably paid that kid to kill them. Thats how bad he wanted out of their lives. L.O.S.E.R
Wow...you're an idiot
Yes, R.I.P Jelani. Juvenile does have a right to mourn, but he also did not claim that the little girl was his until last year or 2006. Her mother and him went to court to establish paternity because he was refusing to pay child support.
I doubt that he had someone kill his own daughter. I doubt that. I think that when you lay a child to rest it messes with you espeically to see that child in a casket. Not every person can deal with seeing thier child dead. Who knows maybe he already saw her and mourned in his own way.
I can imagine that would be an extremely hard thing to do.
You can't tell people how to mourn. It was probably too rough for him to attend.
IT'S ALREADY BEEN REPORTED THAT HE ABANDONED THE BABY SO HIM NOT SHOWING UP TO THE FUNERAL JUST DOESN'T SURPRISE ME AT ALL.
You have no idea how he is feeling. He probably wants to say goodbye in his own way. The funeral is a ceremony, and you can speak to your loved one at any time. The focus was on her life that was stolen too early not who attended.
**Here in the ATL the mother just recently settled a back child support case in which he had to cough up the loot for his daughter. So it wasn't like he was a hands on dad. He was probably too ashamed to show his face at the funeral or probably didn't care. Which is a tragedy.
That is defintely a hard pill to swallow.It may be hard for him to see his child in a casket. God bless him.
we really cant judge, so who knows why he didn't go. honestly, idunno if i could bear seeing my 2 year old in a casket...just the thought of it brings grief n2 my spirit.
someone's comment on here is rather harsh, inappropiate & inconsiderate!!...bad enough the man supposedly didn't go for whatever reason that is unknown to us but to on top of that accuse him of murder conspiracy w/o even having any proof?...***!....pls ppl,let's be mature & respectful about this..geesh!
R.I.P. MAYBE HE WASNT CLOSE TO HIS DAUGHTER HE MAYBE WAS JUST PAYIN CHILD SUPPORT
Juvenile didn't see the child...he only took care of that child through child support. He did not visit the child at all.
I know I am about to fall out with some of yall in here but I have to express what I feel.
1. He has the right to choose not to go to the funeral. There were probably 1000 *** there waiting for him to come.
2. I saw on the news that there was a woman who left her two children in the bath tub while she watched American Idol and one of the children almost died. When the police arrived there was marijuana all around the section 8 housing unit that she lived in.
3. There was a woman who left her five children at home while she went out and partied all *** long and when she finally came home one of the children was dead.
4. A college student was *** and killed and her car was stolen and the car was later seen on video tape driven by a young man trying to get money from an ATM machine (probably from one of her credit cards)
5. A woman was placing her groceries into her car and a carload of men pulled beside the woman and tried to drag her into their car, they got away with her purse.
These events have just recently occured, and all of those crimes were committed by: (you figure it out)
Is this what the civil rights movement was for?
Are these the freedoms that people have died and are still dying to protect?
Maybe that Bell Curve Theory was accurate after all.
Maybe what they are saying about us is true.
WOW! I;m kinda torn. I part of me really wants to believe that it was just too much for him to deal with, but the fact that he had no parts to this child( so it's been reported)and then not to pay his respect to a 4 year old child (his own child)is horrible to most, but normal to a lot of people. No we cannot judge him,tell him or expect him to mourn a certain way. we are not god. And if it's the fact that he didn't go because he just does not care then he will have to answer to a higher power. then a part of me feels that nothing abosoultley nothing would stop me from being there for my child, especially if i'm not there on a day to day basis, but that's just me. "To each it's own"
He probably couldn't take it MTO this is very sad.
I cant knock him..but I cant see why he didnt go...
HE PROBABLY COULD NOT HANDLE IT SO ITS COMMON FOR PEOPLE TO GRIEVE ALONE AND NOT ATTEND THEIR LOVED ONE SERVICE. I SEND MY CONDOLENCES TO HIM AND HIS FAMILY ALONG WITH HER FAMILY ALSO. THIS BOY MESSED UP NOT ONLY HIS LIFE BUT SO MANY OTHERS ITS A SHAME. RIP EVERYONE.
i guess he admitted that she was his daughter but never made the effort to be in her life...its sad that he would just diss her like that..but we honestly don't know him and there is more to the story than we know...soo
I DONT BLAME HIM I WOULD'NT EITHER TOO MUCH HEARTACHE MAN :(
THAT *** HURTS MAN :(
Well May God be with them
Regardless of what he felt for the child, respect for her should been enough for him to attend. God will not put more on you than you can bear so him not being able to deal with saying goodbye is a lame a.s.s. excuse.
Some of the comment tht I am reading are a disgrace and are very inapproate.
How dare you stupid ***, say that he paid the boy to take a child life that is the most craziest thing that I have heard.
It seems that you forgot the real story...A mother and her 2 kids was *** and killed by her son.
That's some messed up *** and My heart goes out to her family as well as the to the alledged killer.
I am sure that he had his reasons everybody doesn't grieve in the same process. And how would you know that this ish is True, Were you there? Did you not see him.
THe Nerves of you people has stunned me.
Everyone has there reasons. However, I believe that you wont heal as fast or the same if you miss the funeral. The funeral is part of the closure process.
FredGSanford, I agree...
No tact whatsoever.
maybe he was just too distraught to go. i know many people may say that he shoulda went anyway cause that was his daughter, but people handle grief differently.
We don't know what's going on in people's world any more than we know what's going on in yours. So we should not be so *** quick to judge him.
Well thats no surprise she obviously wasn't a priority for him, sh!t he denied that it was his child and only paid child support and wasn't active in her life. Another shameful black man how shocking. I bet if it was one of the homies he would have went and would be rapping about it and been made a RIP video! I don't believe that ***!t excuse that he was too distraught he didn't even acknowledge her as his child.
Surprise! Come on people, use your head and not your heart in this matter. Terius Gray fought the late sheriff's deputy over paternity. He was never a part of the little girl's life. Paternity was settled in 2006. He was arrested on this matter for child support. He was not a part of her life. She doesn't even have his surname of Gray, instead she had her mother's surname of Deleston. For the rapperknow as Juvenile, her death means he has no more child support to pay, and for him that's a good things, because his rap career is not exactly popping these days with $$$$$$. I seriously doubt if he had anything to do with her half-brother killing her and the mom and his other half-sister. If he had shown up, it may have been the first time he would have seen her, albeit laid out in a casket. Many fathers of today are just bootay call bandits/sperm donors, they pau child suppport, if that, and that's it. Too many sistas play the role of mom and dad in their kids lives, thus the major problem in Black society. A woman cannot teach a male how to be a man, and even little girls need their daddy too, not just a father.
It is obvious that this picture is not who you really are:
This is the picture of a girl that has made you angry isn't it?
Did she fcuk with your confidence and make you feel Unpretty?
She is a beautiful woman and I'll bet that she can spell and write complete sentences too.
Did she take your man away from you?
I can tell that she has a lovely figure too.
And I don't believe that she has a *** of any sort.
On a personal note, *** ALL OF YOU LOSER that have something to say about that man not attending....How do you know he even knew the child and had an association with the child at all???....He paid child support and that may have been for the best that he wasn't in her life because maybe he would not have been a positive role model in her life being that he never wanted her apparently....NO one knows how the relationship was between him and the childs mother....Not everyone likes funerals and feel that you are NOT showing respect if you do not go to one....I have had about 15 people die in in the last 15 years (family and friends( most recently my aunt died and I haven't attended ANY funerals including hers!!!....I am NOT a funeral person....I can't take them and I choose not to attend....That does not make me any more or less respectful then the next person....Stop judging people losers, you don't know what other people are thinking or their ability to handle death!!!!!!....I have 4 kids, 3 daughters and a son and I can tell you now that if either of them killed (GOD FORBID) I would NOT be at a funeral, I will be to busy looking for the maaafaka that did it and if the law caught him already, I would be to busy trying to commit a crime so I can get locked up and shipped where he is so I can THEN kill him in jail!!!!!....*** a funeral, that does NOT define your respect level or how you choose to deal with death!!!!!!!!!!!
@MissLouisiana and Sparx1
Were you hoes born that dumb or did it takes year of practice to be that DUMB!!!!!!....
Especially (Sparx1)....You go the man having his child killed all because MTO said he didn't attend the funeral....WOW, no it's official, YOU WERE BORN THAT DUMB!!!!!!!....DUMMY!!!!!!!
HE NEVER REALLY ACCEPTED THE FACT THAT HE WAS HER FATHER. REMEMBER WHEN IT WAS PROVEN THAT HE WAS HER FATHER HE STILL DENIED HER. MAYBE HE JUST DIDNT WANT TO BE A FATHER JUST LIKE HALF OF THE MEN OUT THERE.
Some people don't like funerals.My uncle didn't attend his father's funeral or his mothers.
Wow, that was the dumbest comments I think I have seen on thie site!!!!!....Glad you like white ***, we don't need hoes like you around any black ***....You wouldn't know what to do with them anyway cause your used to the little one....LMAO....No disrespect white men but.....Oh well....
THANK YOU SWEETIE YOU SUMMED IT UP FOR EVERYBODY...NOTHING ELSE NEEDS TO BE SAID, BECAUSE EVERYTHING YOU SAID IS THE TRUTH.
I still wonder how am I going to feel about my mothers funeral (hopefully she out lives me) when that time comes....My mother is my best friend, there is NO WAY I can handle that funeral!!!!!....
I was reading through some of your post and I think that some of you don't have a HEART and are very judgemental! "Only GOD can judge me now" that means none of you has the right!!!
You only know what the media has put out to you but do you know what he has done for the child that the media has not reported? Do you know his HEART and how he feels losing his daughter? My guest is simple probably not.
I KNOW IF IT WAS ME.....I COULDN'T GO TO THE FUNERAL...I'D BE TO HURT....AND BESIDES I'D BE TO BUSY TRYING TO FIND A WAY TO GET INTO THE COUNTY JAIL THAT IS HOLDING THAT BLACK DEVIL WHO KILLED HER.....SO I CAN KILL HIM...SLOWLY.....REAL REAL TALK....THEN THEY CAN EXECUTE ME....
That streetwalker Sparx just looking for attention because everyone else just does not care about her. Stupid *** bit..ch cant say anything but that Juvi had his family killed. What a ***....hey *** here is a dollar...suck it.
Some of you hoes on this thread are dumb as f^ck! I can't believe some of the ***$hit I've read. I'm pretty sure Juvey has his reasons for not going. I don't know his reasons THEREFORE, I really can't comment on it. Juvey, keep your head up boo. In the words of the G.O.A.T. "Only God Can Judge Me"
THeBroken Silence: That was a nice twist! I forgot all about those RIP video tributes.
AllaboutmeWill: I can understand where you are coming from. My good friend lost her mother when she was 15 and didn't attend her funeral.
Also, it was up until last year that she didn't even believe in God, because her mother was taken from her so early. Death isn't easy to deal with.
I don't know about this story, if HE didn't attend hopefully people from his FAMILY did.
This is so sad yet typical...
I went to [SPAM].com and i couldnt really find anything...do you recommend anything specific, like a fat flush...i just want to cleanse my system and lost maybe 5pounds while im at it...
I AGREE WITH WUT U SAID TOOK THE WORDS RIGHT OUT MY MOUTH.
I'm feeling your long comment. People don't know what the situation is and just because MTO posted this doesn't mean that he did not attend. He might have. But if he didn't, no one should judge or come down on him. He might have not wanted to remember his child like that. I don't have any kids but I do know a few people that have lost a child, and I am sure that only a parent will know how that feels to lose a child. I had a cousin that died of lupus about 8 years ago and some of my family members didn't attend the funeral, just the repass because they just could not take the fact that she was gone. SO EVERYONE NEEDS TO LEAVE MY HOMEBOY JUVE ALONE.
I dont kno why he would attend,but i wouldnt attend my childs funeral,its way 2 much.
To me him not going to the funeral makes since. Maybe it was too hard for him because she was never apart of his life and he regrets it. He will never have that chance again. And if it is true that he never even saw her, why would he want the first time to be at her funeral. Going to her funeral is a reminder to him that he was a failure to her as a man and a father.
Hey, the man didn't acknowledge the fact that he was the father a few years ago. Its not like he was there present and accounted for. Get real....
We all hope for a "perfect" life, but you get out of life what you put into it.
He probably doesnt want to remember his daugther like that. Sometimes its best not to go
Agreeing with Ms_HollyWood......
it was probably a lot for him to deal with:
he was estranged from the family anyway, his young daughter was murdered, the media was probably somewhere in tow, could you imagine?
-Autos (new and pre-owned)
we can't judge him... can you imagine losing those three individuals all at once unprompted by YOUR SON
that's a Hollywood horror and i for one dont know if i'd be strong enough to attend the funeral either
He never tried to be a father to her before, she had to fight him for him to even acknowledge her as his child.....the least he could have done was show his respects to her memory. So many of yall say he was grieving or ashamed, but he owed her atleast that much, he treated her wrong in life, he could have atleast acted like a father for once and been there for her home going service. It's pathetic. Get over yourself Juve, if you concerned about being ashamed and how you looked AS A MAN, you would have never been held on child abandonment charges or arrested for not doing for your seed.
I sure he can honor her w/out attending. Besides, he's celebrity would have distracted from the tragedy. He's decision not to attend was honorable in my opinion.
The reason he probably did not attend is because of media outlets like MTO would be there looking for "exclusive" pics instead of paying their respects to the deceased and turning it into a media circus. Also, some very disrespectful "fans" would have been there just wanting to see him and try to meet him and get autographs, pics, etc. This happens all of the time at funerals of a celebrity's loved one(s). I remember when Johnny Gill lost his father, people were there asking this man for autographs. When Whitney Houston's father died, there were televisions cameras inside and outside of the church filming her actions and demeanor.
Mr. Gray may have mourned them in private at the funeral home. Or did you have that staked out as well? I hope you all were not that disrespectful to this man. If so, you all are pitiful. He may have even footed the bill for all of the services. Not just his child. So before you try to diss him MTO, find out the whole story. Of course I would be a fool to expect anything more.
Why do I keep coming here?
He is just another mentally-ill *** who denied his own child. Shame on him.
I still wanna know why this happened and the reason this happened. I think there is more to this story than we all know.
@Sparx1...that was "crazy" what you said....
We all mourn differently...I guess??
WOW THATS SO SAD. I KNOW IT WOULD HAVE BEEN TOUGH BUT I STILL THINK HE SHOULD HAVE MANNED UP AND ATTENTED. IM SURE HE THOUGHT IT WAS IMPORTANT TO ATTEND HIS MOMMAS FUNERAL. IT WAS HIS FLESH AND BLOOD.
Thats sad, I feel for him!
He does have a right not to go to his daugther's funeral! I didn
t attend my father's! So now what?
Sorry - I had a flashback!
The point: There is no "good" excuse that can be offered to explain why he missed his child's final farewell - period.
that *** will be hard, knowing your kid laying in a casket. Some people cant take seeing someone dead that they love.when you lose people you love it gets to you
It seems a little odd. But that is a lot to take in.. Perhaps he was under a doctors care and was informed not to attend.
3 at once, i dont think he couldof handle it! he's probably at his breaking point right now, but who know's....maybe later on in life when he accepts the fact....he's gonna regret not attending that funeral, atleast because he didnt look at his babygirl 1 more time..may they all R.I.P and I'll pray 4 em..
FIRST OFF @ SPARX1 - U SOUND LIKE A *** SAYING HE HAD HIS FAM KILLED! HOW CAN U BE SO CHILDISH U MUST BE A 10YR OLD WITH YO SISTER PIC UP. GRO THE HELL UP! AND @ MISSLOUISIANA YES WE DID SEND Condolences TO HIM AND THAT WAS GREAT BUT HAVE U EVER HAD YOUR CHILD KILLED TO JUDGE THE CONDITION OF A PERSON WHEN IT COMES TO LOOKIN AT A CHILD IN A CASKET. I'M JUST SAYING U DONT KNOW WHAT CONDITION HE WAS OR IS IN SO KEEP IT TASTEFUL AND STILL KEEP HIM IN THE YO PRAYERS.
He probably went while noone was around like at the funeral home or before the funeral, I've seen that happen plenty of times when people pass. Nothing wrong with it.
Plus voyse_of_reazon---I agree with you 100%.
I knew MTO would have SOMETHING to say about it, and I knew it would be negative.
he may have been so upset that he couldnt bear the sight of his daughter being buried. geez mto give the man his peace....everyone deals with grief in their own way!
It was probably too much to deal with, more than likely his reason for not being in attendance was not out of disrespect.
everybody on here has went to a funeral, but he had to attend a burial of three. thats alot awhole for one person to deal with
AllaboutmeWill...........You said:I still wonder how am I going to feel about my mothers funeral (hopefully she out lives me) when that time comes....My mother is my best friend, there is NO WAY I can handle that funeral!!!!!....
Yeah I said it, so what of it!!!!
I say: Would you *** the *** up! Take that *** to your pastor! Or your sibblings or your wife.... we don't give a ***! Who the *** is your mother anyway!!!!! C'mon now!!
jokes4days..everybody on here has went to a funeral, but he had to attend a burial of three. thats alot awhole for one person to deal with
My cousin buried two sons the same day....with the thrid standing next to her..(Two Sons)...But she was there....It was so draining on me I came in the house and fell "UP" the stairs, sat there and proceeded to clean them....cant imagine what it was like on her when she got home.....
I knew this family personally. Juvenile was not so close to his daughter that he woudl be too upset to attend the funeral. He is just a trifling ni**a. He'll have no good luck for this.
Us black folk need to realize what funerals are really for. We claim that they are for the one's we lost but we actually make it about ourselves. Why at every black funeral there is someone crying, acting out? Notice that the person crying the loudest is the one that caused the dead person the most grief?
Well, I didn't expect this LOSER to attend the funeral. And WTF do you guys mean when you say he was probably too upset to attend or that he couldn't deal with it? This guy is a selfish SOB that doesn't care for anyone but himself. It's sad enough that this girl never experienced the true love of a father (biological) while alive and to die and have his sorry azz not attend the funeral. You people crack me up. I hope he asks God for forgiveness before he leaves this earth. Men, step up and do the right thing by your family. Just because you don't care for the mothers don't mean you have to neglect your kids. Wake the *** up and be men! People, quit making excuses for this LOSER! You are just as ignorant as him.
I have a cousin who was killed some years back.One of the people that was closest to him could not attend the wake. This was his own brother. It was too painful. But I know he does not love his brother any less. I cant speak for Juve, but some of these comments are ridiculous.
The person who wrote that he probablly "paid" to have them killed sould be ashamed.
Even Jesus himself said "let the dead bury the dead". That wonderful little girl that he probably loved dearly is gone. He didn't attend? Well the little girl didn't either. That is just a body. Hopefully he took great care of her while she was here because her spirit has passed.
Opinions are like azzes everyone has one. Nobody knows why and that's none of our business to be sitting here juding a man. This must have been hard for him.
Ever see folks go crazy when they are about to close the casket? That is always the fool that usally put "big mama" in the casket. Ever hear at a funeral "They really looked good..the funeral home did a good job".WTF? Nobody looks good in a casket!!! IT'NOT THEM! IT'S JUST A CORPSE!
try praying for the loved ones of these three people instead of judging because in reality
YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT HAPPENED OR WHY
HE COULD BE A SORRY FOOL OR HE COULD BE OVERCOME WITH GRIEF REGUARDLESS THE FOCUS SHOULD BE ON THE LIVES LOST AND THIER FAMILY
Y'ALL KEEP SAYING LET HIM DEAL WIT IT HIS WAY BUT HE AT LEAST COULD OF WENT TO HIS OWN CHILD FUNERAL
ya suckaz for postin this...i ant go to a close friends funeral cuz sometimes its to real...or he wanna leave the last memory of his baby like that!! *** mto!!!!
If this is true, has anyone here thought that because he wasnít really in the childís life (if thatís true...) the family may have requested he not attend the funeral? For two reasons: (1) Out of respect to the grieving family members and (2) If Juvenile were to attend the funeral (being that he is somewhat famous...) the funeral would have become a media circus (like *** Cís funeral). And who would want to have to deal with that on top of the already horrific ***.
I could say a lot of *** to your byrch azz right now but what is the point because we are on a open forum site and you have free will to say WHATEVER you want and get away with it BUT....***, you need to grow up and watch your mouth you *** azz ***!!!!....For your sake, you are lucky this is a site that does not disclose any information on the person that post because you will *** around and be the next mofo that NO ONE is coming to your funeral!!!!....
HES SUCH A LOSER, HES GONNA HELL FOR THAT
you don't know the situation...you are not God...why would you even post something like this???
He's a loser, I remember seeing that story on the news. He didn't wanna pay child support but he was ordered by the court. There was also an agreement that he never see the child as well. Overall, he still should of when to the funeral.
See, this is what I'm talking about. It is this type of destructive behavior that makes my azz itch.
I wish I could build a time machine
I would tell Rosa Parks to go sit at the back of that bus
I would tell Martin Luther King not to march one damm step
I would tell Malcolm X to keep on Pimping
I would tell the freedom riders to hold that mule
I would tell Harriet Tubman to build the underground railroad for her own personal use and to hell with the rest of them
And I should tell Barack Obama to drop out of the race
Cause ***!GGAS Still Ain't Ready
After all this time
After all we have been through
All the lynching
All the bombings
Those Four Little Girls were Sacrificed for us
Still Ain't Ready
Martin was killed
Still Ain't Ready
If not now..when?
I lost my mom a few years ago, that was and is the hardest sh!t. I pray I live forever just so my kids don't have to go through what I'm going through. But on the flip side of that I don't want to go through burying one of my kids.
I don't know y Juvenile didn't go to the funeral, but I do feel like that's between him and his GOD
@CHARLESMOORE72...YOU SAID IT!!
@LUSIL1976...I CAN'T SEEM TO GET BACK ON THE MAIN THREAD...I CHECK THE E-FAM OUT EVERY MORNING YOU LADIES ARE FUNNY!!! SOME DILIKE YOU GUY'S, BUT THIS IS JUST FUN AND THEY TAKE IT TOO SERIOUS!
I didn't go to my brothers' funeral, because I thought that my heart would give out. I loved my brother more than anything in this world. Sometimes people can't take that pain, it's too hard to deal with. Until you have walked in my shoes.
Aaaaaayy!!....yall can't be judging the man cause he didn't go to the funeral. Hell I know a lot of my relative who just can't bring themselves to come to a funeral...either because it makes them nautious or the just down right scared to see a dead person in a casket. I believe Juvy probably had a private service so he could mourn without all of the media attention.
Stp judging people you don't even know about...goodness.
Yo Sparx1 I had the same *** thought. It is crazy to think that a parent would not make it to their own childs funeral. I think the answer to that would be to look at what the relationship with the child was. Maybe he could care less or maybe he cared too much. Maybe its pain maybe it is guilt. Maybe he feels that he should have spent more time with her or should have seen her the weekend before but broke a promise because he was on the road. No one knows. We cannot pass judgement; it is just not our place. I will admit it just does not seem right; forget the media, the press or the fans. He dont owe us an interview or to make a statement or any explanation for that fact. Thats an explanation that he only owes her. Only he and GOD knows his reasons and his heart.
I LOOK AT IT AS BEING ENTIRELY TOO HARD TO DEAL WITH. SOME PEOPLE CAN TAKE PRESSURE BETTER THAN OTHERS. WE ALL KNOW HE HAD MAD LOVE FOR HIS DAUGHTER WETHER HE WAS WITH THE MOTHER O NOT, BUT BE REALHAD IT HAPPEN TO ME, I DONT KNOW IF I WILL BE ABLE TO HOLD MYSELF TOGETHER TO ATTEND HER FUNERAL, OR MAYBE HE JUST WANT TO REMEMBER HER IN A MORE PEACEFUL WAY. MY HEART GOES OUT TO HIM.
I don't care god doesn't put nothing on you that u can't handle. There is no excuse for not attending your childs funeral. His as$ wasn't that distraught hell according to everything i read the claim he was not active in her life. I wonder did he pay for part of the service. Hell no one likes funerals and if he took it too hard hell he could have at least been spotted in the same town as his childs body the hell with juvenile how the hell can you not handle saying by to your daughter when you are a gangsta rapper come on now thats some hoe a$$ ish
What a horrible situation. It's probably too much for him to deal with. I feel bad for him.
everybody has their own reasons for doing and not *** stuff, in this particular case mto doesent know if he did or didnt, he could have been in disguise or something, i have seen numberous celebrities in disguise, thats what celebs do when they try to avoid the limelight, its a shame they have to do it but its the price they pay for fame, i wouldnt want my last memory of my kid to be laying in a box, yet i would still show up to support my family so you have to kinda look at it from both sides
real talk indeed & broken silence i agree 100%
@chaygood0291...dont make the mistake that many racist do that is judge a class of people on what the worst in that race has done.
That little boy is sick in his head for killing his family like that! Hope they rape his a$s in jail lol
MTO- you need to make the enter codes clearer- Juvenile is a Pig for not attending his daughters funeral. Trailer Trash Pig- This goes to show that he was no loving DAD he paid child support and College fund because of a Smart mother and an enlightened Judge- Pig of a man- Since Juvenile did not attend his daughters funeral people should not buy anymore CD's. My prayers to the other side of the family. Juvenile is a PIG
Well, maybe he didn't want to see his child put into a casket. That's something he may NEVER, EVER recover from.
Hard to handle or not, to painful or not, whatever the excuse may be....he could have gone to his daughters funeral. I love me some Juvie. But if this is true, he is straight up on my dookie list.
it's a sad thing for anyone to lose a family memeber, maybe the thought of seeing his baby that way would hurt even more. juvie my prayers go out to you
yall f^ckas on MTO never amaze me wit the *** yall say..nobody knows what relationship him and his daughters mom had..just say RIP and keep it movin...why the hell yall always gotta say sumthin negative...*** damn ***...negorz
I dont care how hard it would be to see my baby dead...THERE's NO WAY IN HELL..I'd miss it. OK, I understand that people morn different, but I sure hope this story is NOT true.
ALL OF YOU ALL THAT WERE SAYING JUVENILE "MUST BE SO HURT, HEARTBROKEN, IN PAIN, JUST DEVESTATED", YOU NEED TO PICK YOUR FACES UP OFF THE GROUND! I told you all he was a deadbeat negro! He wouldn't even pay child support, if whitey got to make you pay for your seed, you really think a *** gone show up to his DEAD child's funeral! NOT!!!!! This *** breathing a big sigh of relief that he aint got to get forced to pay support anymore. I TOLD YA'LL BEFORE, DEADBEAT MALES GET ABSOLUTELY NO LOVE OR SYMPATHY FROM ME! TRIFLIN MOTHAF**KAS!!!!
YA'LL DO NOT NEED TO WORRY ABOUT THE REASON HE DIDN'T SHOW. THAT'S HIS *** BUSINESS.EVERYONE DEALS WIT SH*T DIFFERENTLY. SO UNTIL YO A$$ GOES THROUGH THE SAME SITUATION (WHICH I PRAY YA'LL DON'T) DON'T JUDGE THE MAN. THE SITUATION IS STILL SAD. TO THE IGNORANT, HOES WHO GO BY "MISSLOUISIANA" AND "SPARX1", BOTH OF YA'LL B*TCHES CAN GO TO HELL.
RIP to his daughter..He's just handling it his own way probably.He's still mourning even though he didn't attend.
ALSO @EDDIMURPHY, i HOPE THE GIRL WHOSE PICTURE YOU POSTED UP( OBVIOUSLY WITHOUT HER CONSENT) AND SAYING DEROGATORY THINGS FIND OUT WHO YOU ARE AND PRESS CHARGES AGAINST YOU! FYI, THAT YOUNG LADY WHOS PICTURE YOU ARE USING AS YOUR OWN , CAN PRESS CHARGES AGAINST YOU, HAVE YOU THROWN IN JAIL AND SUE YOUR JILTED, JEALOUS ***!
Peace to the two little ones who's life was token too soon.
Now another young brother will soon be apart of the prison industrial complex. That's 1 in 100 people in the United Snakes
he is emotionally
distroyed right now
im not mad at him for being extrememly
emotional, me personally dont like
funerals either,just becuz you dont attend a funeral
doesnt mean that person doesnt love you
i aint mad at juvenile for not attending at all
he need all his rest he can ever get
WOW!!! SO SAD. WELL EVERYONE HANDLES DEATH DIFFERENTLY SO WHO KNOWS WHAT HE'S GOIN THRU, BUT MY PRAYERS GO OUT TO THE FAMILIES.
Cant even begin to think what this man is going through, therefore I wont judge. Be strong bruh.
Yes everyone handles death differently.
Especially if his showing up to the funeral could have created a media circus.
Hell for every news story that reported the death
they made sure to post the Dna testing and child support case that took place....how many years before? having absolutely nothing to do with the murder of this child
This was a child he didn't even want! At least the idiot does not have to pay child support anymore!
First off, no one knows why he didn't attend, so people *** jump to conclusions.
Just because Juve wasn't there doesn't mean he didn't mourn. Maybe he didn't want all the media attention on him while at the funeral. Who knows? But as mentioned before, everyone mourns in their own way. It doesn't mean that he doesn't care.
U people sound stupid! A man who doesn't want to pay child support is basically saying I don't care if this child has enough money to eat, have clothes and roof over their head. Basically, "I DON"T CARE IF THIS CHILD LIVES OR DIES!" All that *** about him not being able to handle it. Puleeeze!!! Name one GOOD MOTHER/FATHER who says "I can't handle this!" "I'm not making any funeral arrangements and I'm not going. I don't care who does it and how they do it. I can't take it. It's too much for me to handle!" Sorry I can't think of one DECENT PARENT who would say that. I can think of a few LOSERS though.
Selfish! Selfish! Selfish! Explains s much about why the worl is the way it is. Nobody want to take repsonsibility for a *** thing they do. His flesh and blood is dead, but it's too painful for HIM. So even in death his feelings and his wants come before the simple decency of paying respect, laying his eyes on his child before she is finally placed 6ft under for good. Waaay, it's too hard for HIM. It's too painful for HIM!
Let people grieve the way they want to. It's not about Juvenile. It's about the Mother, 11 year old daughter and yes the 4 year old who happened to be Juvenile. It's about the sinceless crime of a teenager.
I cant even imagine how painful this is..I dont know if I would be able to get out of my bed and walk for a long time..this is a child..its one thing when a mother or grandmother dies but when its your BABY? and in such a violent and gruesome way? ***..I dont know how someone can cope..my prayers go out to him
plus he must be angry that the babys mothers son did this, and he probably wants nothing to do with her family..Im sure he places some blame on them..listen people, unless you have experienced something like this, dont judge the man..this is mentally and emotionally brutal for anyone to deal with
PEOPLE HAVE DIFFERENT WAYS OF DEALING WITH GRIEF
I PRAY FOR JUVENILE AND HIS FAMILY
I feel so sorry for him to be going through this. He lost two daughters! I don't know if he was close to their mother, but I am sure that he didn't want her to die.
Juvenile's murdered 4-year-old daughter Jelani was laid to rest Saturday along with her her sister Micaiah, and their mother, Gwinnett County Sheriff's Deputy Joy Deleston in James Island, S.C.
Juvenile did not attend the service and, according to his spokesperson, made the decision because he didn't want to divert attention away from the ceremony with further media attention.
Cops in Georgia arrested 17-year-old Anthony Tyrone Terrell Jr.,and charged him with killing his mother, and his two small sisters.
Juvenile did not attend the service and, according to his spokesperson, made the decision because he didn't want to divert attention away from the ceremony with further media attention.
This is what I figured. Thanks for posting this.
He shoulda gone, thats messed up ya'll.
Pitiful..but he never acknowledged her anyways until they got a paternity test. He never spent time with her just sent the child support. He could've went though. She was his child..Darn!
rather odd wouldn't ya say?
HE PROBABLY FELT BAD ABOUT NOT BEING IN HER LIFE. AFTER ALL, ALL HE DID WAS PAY CHILD SUPPORT!!! HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN THERE!
I see you beleive evrything you hear, huh? That *** statement he had his publicist release is exactly that, ***! What did you expect him to say? Media can stop you from going to your own child's funeral? I thought he was gonna at least lie and say it would have been too painful. Can't you stop the media from coming into the funeral home or church? YES you can! He sounds stupid but I guess dumbass*s like you will believe anything!
***: If you read what I posted earlier ***, you would see that I clearly stated that people mourn in their own way and that just because he didn't go doesn't mean that he don't care. So fall back with all that.....
***!!! I CANNOT BELIEVE ALL THESE PEOPLE ON HERE SO QUICK TO TALK SH*T JUST CAUSE HE DIDN'T ATTEND HIS DAUGHTERS FUNERAL...EVERYBODY HAS THEIR OWN WAY OF MOURNING MAYBE HE COULDN'T STAND THE THOUGHT OF WATCHING HIS BABY GIRL BEING BURIED...HE OWES NO ONE A REASON ON WHY HE DIDN'T ATTEND...IT'S HIS BUSINESS
When you bury that person, THAT IS THE LAST TIME YOU WILL SEE THEM, THE LAST. I think he should have attended, but from what I hear he wasn't involved, truly sad. Our Black men.
He hasn't been a part of her life except to write the check so why be a hypocrite and show up at her funeral.
got this from another site:

Juvenile performed at the Hypnotized Tour in Augusta Saturday nite and received so much love. And his performance was dope!!!!!!! What a man. RIP and prayers for the family. Keep your head up Juvenile. I would love to see Kanye West and Juvenile do a song about loosing loved ones. It would be nice.
the news of juve doing a concert was posted in the comments on [SPAM] . blogspot . com. to do a concert when you're not even willing to show up at your pwn child's funeral is beyond reprehensible. i won't waste anymore words trying to drive the point home. you know where his priorities were, make your own decisions.
any sympathy i had for him, i take back. r.i.p. to beautiful jelani, who wasn't wanted by him in life, and was once again denied his love and consideration in death.
i sorry there is no excuse for that..thats ur child..was he ever really in her life like that from the begining..so sad
I'm sorry but there is NO REASON in the world to not attend your child's funeral......cant excuse that one. We all have the choice of making babies but babies dont have a choice at being made....if you are not ready to be a parent practice safe *** man....this *** is *** ri-***-diculous and inexcusable....I'm sick of reading about babies being killed, neglected, abused...sicking. Get it together people.
Lately I have been keeping my opinion to myself but this story clip has me rattled. Wait, let me stop and Send my condolences. Now, when I read that Juvenile did not attend the funeral, I was not at all surprised. As far as what anybody else feels or has to say about thefacts are irrevlavant. Men take things alot differently than women, and maybe that he is not ready to accept the tragic loss yet, but for some a$$holes to get up here and make stupid judmental comments about him and how he is dealing is just really lame and wack and it upsets me to actually see how heartless and coldhearted people really are. I have dealt with loss my whole life and I can completely understand how hard it is. They say to bury your child is the hardest thing in the world to do. How many of these people have lost a child and to senselesss violence at that? It a tragic loss but I really feel like none of your opinions matter as to why he did not show up!lil_msfxy is dumb talking bout practice safe ***. WHa?? Who in the world brings a child in this world prepared to bury them???? WTF safe *** gotta do wit that mans grief? Huh?
I've always been a fan of juvenile since he first came out. And during this tragedy i prayed for him and his family, The day of the funeral i was saying he is really going through. on march 8th (the day of the funeral) we had a concert in my hometown in augusta, ga before this tragedy juvenile was on the ticket slated to perform it was the plies hypnotized tour . I have been wrong about some things before and i was really shocked on saturday because guess who was performing??? mr. juvie himself and i was shocked along with many others in the audience. Death is unknown we never know exactly when it happens and we could never prepare ourselves for the many emotions we're faced with. Noone like to attend funerals and loved ones are lost every minute yes, some of us take it harder than others and we may not be able to attend under a doctor's order but to miss a funeral and to be in attendance at a concert i can't even find the words to explain it all i could say is fame isn't important than saying goodbye in your own way. Yes, it was issues about the child custody case but that was reported through the media not her family they still acknowledged him as her father the other two kids father was in attendance so there's no excuse when the reason isn't making sense. he may had issues as the media reported about paternity but in the END he still knew he was the father of this child. Not only was he at the concert he was also at an after party There's just no excuse for this situation!!!!
Something just doesn't add up with this situation. secondly, he would have seemed like a complete stranger to everyone there, when he was forced to take a paternity test to prove he were the sperm donor. My thought's and prayer's are with the family of the deceased. Thirdly, how could he grieve for a child he never had a realtionship with, that's *** $hizzle, that he is grieving. Any male can make a baby, but it takes a father to raise the baby. Juvi is just a replica of a man/father, in my eye sight. It's time for women to wake up, and stop picking up these replica's of men. When a MAN finds a wife, he finds a good thing in the Lord. If a man has to be force to prove paternity of a child, and forced to pay child support, then he is not a MAN. He just has the looks of a man, no actions as one. Women define youselves, before you end up confined yourselves to one of these replica's of a man. Again, something just doesn't add up, regarding this matter, there is some suspicion to this. May their sols rest in peace!!!
@ Darkman 415
I am not a racist I am a Black Woman
And I am telling you the truth about us
It is pitiful the way we conduct ourselves
in everyday life and I want us to change
I know it is difficult to accept the truth
when it is thrown in our faces the way that I do
but I do this because we need to take responsibility for our own personal actions
and the actions of our people
It is up to us to stop them
White people are laughing at us
and every time we commit acts such as these
It is played on the media with extra attention
I am Black and I have made some mistakes in my life...we all have
But these kids today don't have to make the mistakes that we have
We can teach them what we've learned from our own mistakes and show them how important it is that they set an exceptional example to the world
But they don't
Because We don't
It is our Responsibility to change the minds
of the world when it concerns us
I don't care about the other races and what they do
I speak so harshly about blacks because I am Black
and I have two little black children that I am going to turn loose in this world one day
And on that day I want the world to be a better place for them
The *** is affecting our community! I know its' hard, but he should have been there. It's bad enough he just claimed this child in '06 and then don't come to the funeral...I don't like them either, but I will go to pay my respects.
why would he visit when he doedn't care. he was just a sperm donor. he is not grieving and he didn't love that child, may he rest in hell. and may the deceased rest in heaven.
MY OPINION ABOUT THIS SITUATION: 4 WHAT EVER REASON HE DIDN'T ATTEND THE CEREMONY "***.O.T.H.I.***.G" SUSTITUTES 4 THAT; IT'S DOWN RIGHT DISHONORABLE AND COWARDLY...NO SHADE ABOUT IT BOTTOM LINE...ANY MAN CAN LIE DOWN AND MAKE A CHILD THAT DOESN'T MAKE HIM A FATHER THE SAME APPLYS 4 WOMEN.
I dont think I would have attended either....Too much to stomach
didnt he go to soulja slim's funeral though?
I think he feels guilty because he didn't take care of his business, but may the mother and her two kids in rest in peace and my condolences go out to the family.
thats sad...there no excuse for him not going...he at least could've explained why he didn't attend
Wow!!!!!God bless him...
HE WANTS THIS TIME TO BE ALONE AND MOURN HIS LOSS, SO SAD!!!!!!!!!
my grandmother and my uncle died a day behind each other when i was five months pregnant and as hard as it was for me to go to that funeral. i sucked it up and went. on the other hand two of my friends died later on that same year and i was advised not to go because i was going to stress my self out. now i can't speak for him or anyone else but i think it is dishonorable to not attend your own child funeral but if what people said about him denying the child and not being in her life is true than theres your answer right thre. or maybe he went to the funeral home adn had his private time with her like someone else said. no one knows but him. but if he didn't attend for his own selfish reasons than he will have to leave with and pay for that in the long run
Lets not jump the gun here we don't know the entire story behide him and his daughter. im sure hes mourning in his own way.
Juvenile is too much of an idiot to come up with an excuse that would be a valid one for this.With the dozens upon dozens of state troopers and other officers that attended the funeral, I really don't think the media would have tried to attack this "has been" negro!Alot of people are trying to give him the benefit of the doubt by saying "Maybe he paid for the funeral or maybe he came to the wake or maybe he came before the funeral started..."wrong,wrong and WRONG!!!There was a memorial service in Georgia-he was not there!He was not at the wake, because there was none! There was a public viewing for two hours only on Friday evening.He was not there!He did not come before the funeral, because there was a church filled with people at 9 am (the funeral started at 11) and the deceased had not even arrived!I hope he at least sent flowers, because he did not cover any of the burial expenses.This is my family-I know what the he!! I am talking about and so does MTO!!!Some other idiot said "there were probably 1000 *** waiting on him-"I didn't notice anyone specifically waiting on him,and being that we are the close knit community that we are-we had already dogged him out anyway and knew his sorry a$$ would be a NO SHOW!I will say this and then I'm out...it was ok for the media to let us know that the daughter of Juvenile was one of the murder victims-you felt closer to them, like you knew them personally.Well it's more than that to alot more people.It seems as though it doesn't really matter who Jelani's father was;Terius Gray is just another example, or should I say embarrassment of another TRIFLING,LOWLIFE,COWARDLY brutha-one who knows nothing about MANNING UP to responsibility...
And for the record, no one from his family represented him either-but why should they have when he wasn't too devastated to do a show that *** in Augusta(but that was a good one-maybe you should be his manager?)
R.I.P. Joy, Micaiah, and Jelani Deleston-we miss ya'll!!!
He didn't care nothin bout that lil girl. For a while he said she wasnt his until she took him to court for child abandonment. Yeah, he paid child support but he dreaded doing that. So him not being there doesnt surprise me.

So, I didn't go nether, what dat mean?
@Ms_HollyWood-you took the words right out of my mouth. Grieving is a hard thing to do. I actually don't do wakes anymore, I'd rather remember you the last way I saw you-alive...I do attend the burial to pay my respects...yall don't know what this man is going through-he might be in a depressed state or state of shock-or denial-which is a normal part of the mourning process. He's probably got it made up in his mind that she's not dead. I know when my fave cousin passed, even after I had the program from the funeral and saw him in the casket-he wasn't dead to me. It's a hard thing to explain and I can't even imagine what it must feel like to lose a child...the point is, we can't judge cuz we don't know where his head is right now....all we can do is pray for him. Not to mention, we don't know that he never paid his respects...he may just be a really private person and viewed her privately-or stood a great distance away...
Oh and I didn't know the disturbed young man was @ the Dekalb County Jail-I live right around the corner from there...did anyone ever hear a motive? I just think the boy must've lost his mind, that's the only explanation I can think of...
First of all,Juvi never owed the public an explanation for anything. He started by making comments through his so-called manager.If he paid his respects,don't you think his manager would have commented on it before?They made statements for everything else...Stop making excuses for this loser!!!It's getting old....And besides,how do you go to work on the day of your child's funeral???;exactly-IT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE!!!!
cant nobody say what they will do if it happened to them, unless your child was killed. i feel you Juvi i dont know what i would do if it was my son. the last place you want to be is at your childs funeral
You are so right!??!Go get paid and party afterward, but Oh yeah you didn't give a *** in the first place.Noone knows what they would do, but those two things would be the last two things on their mind-if they were really grieving. Now if they really didn't give a $hit, then maybe...so you're saying that you don't give a $hit-I'm confused???That's the funny thing about priorities...going out and getting drunk-black folks do that before and after the funeral...from what I can see,all ya'll mo foes are black, so I think we all know better.Now if you want to support this sorry ba$t@rd, that's another story!!!
Later for this dumb $hit-ya'll just as ignorant as that punk bi+ch -no good upbringing whatsoever...right is right and wrong is wrong-you should know better...I am so disappointed in my people
As a matter of fact-If any of you S.O.B's are registered to vote, please just go ahead and cast your ballots on John McCain...he and the Republican party don't give a *** about the black family or our values either
