TMZ reported at the time that XXX and his son’s mother, Jenesis Sanchez, the late rapper had been in a relationship for some time. The article said that sources close to the family were adamant that the child’s mother was not the rapper’s ex-girlfriend, Geneva. XXXTentacion knew that he was going to be a father at the time of his death.
