Turquoise Miami, the mother of rapper Fetty Wap's late 4-year-old daughter, Lauren Maxwell, denies the cause of death listed on Lauren's death certificate.

Lauren died from a cardiac arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat) at home in Atlanta on June 24, according to a death certificate obtained by TMZ.

She was born with a congenital heart defect on February 7th, 2017, and had undergone open heart surgery in 2019.

Hours after TMZ reported Thursday that Lauren died from an irregular heartbeat, Turquoise took to her Instagram Story to dispute the cause of death.

She lashed out at TMZ for "stealing" the death certificate and publishing misinformation about her daughter.

"This is what y'all people do for fun. F–k all y'all. Her death certificate says cardiac arrhythmia due to a congenital heart defect BUT THAT IS NOT THE FULL CAUSE OF HER DEATH THAT IS WHY THE AUTOPSY HASN'T COME BACK!

"HOW DARE Y'ALL GO STEAL MY CHILD'S DEATH CERTIFICATE AND ANNOUNCE THE CAUSE OF DEATH BEFORE ANYBODY WAS READY. THERE IS A REASON WHY! HER AUTOPSY ISN'T BACK YET."

In another post Turquoise accused TMZ of exploiting her daughter's death.

"Y'all love breaking news so bad but this is my life and it's me without my daughter not none of y'all!. I feel the loneliness every night not none of y'all! Y'all so f–kin Thirsty to report a 4 year old. This is my trauma that is why I posted and moved HOW I FELT COMFORTABLE!"

As rumors about their daughter's death circulated on social media, Fetty and Turquoise waited nearly 2 months to confirm Lauren's death.

So far, Fetty Wap hasn't commented on the death certificate controversy.

Fetty Wap is also father to five other children with multiple women: Amani, 5, Aydin, 10, Khari, 5, Zaviera, 6, and Zy, born in 2018.

The 30-year-old rapper, who was born with glaucoma in both eyes, lost his left eye in childhood. He was fitted with a glass eye prosthesis as a child but he declines to wear one as an adult.

"You don't want to get the Covid vaccine because it was done in less than a year? Wow we have lost so many people in the AIDS pandemic and we still don't have a vaccine for that. We do have PREP, but no real vaccine. Shut the hell up and get your Covid vaccine!"

Midwin Charles, the CNN and MSNBC legal analyst passed away after getting the Covid-19 mRNA vaccine. She was 47.

Charles died on Tuesday, April 6, her family confirmed in a statement on social media. The family did not disclose the cause or manner of her death.

On March 1, Charles announced she had received the first dose of the experimental Covid-19 mRNA vaccine.

Charles died days after she would have received her second dose of the gene therapy vaccine.

She told her followers she had preexisting medical conditions, including asthma and a severe peanut allergy.

"Just got vaccinated (qualified because of my asthma) at a FEMA center. Everyone at the site is in uniform. It's good to see our service men and women! Process was organized, efficient, and everyone is kind and in a good mood. Let’s do this!"

In a follow-up tweet, she wrote:

"I have a death causing allergy to peanuts and wanted to have my Epi pen with me when I got vaccinated in case I went into anaphylaxis shock. Turns out my "insurance" wouldn't cover it and it's $387????"

Charles reported "soreness" at the injection site that resolved two days later.

Tributes continue to pour in on social media for the Haitian-born defense attorney, who used her social media presence to promote the vaccine.

Charles' family announced her untimely death in a post on her Instagram page. She passed away on Tuesday.

Now Charles' Instagram followers wonder if her death is linked to the experimental mRNA vaccine she received on March 1.

In a tweet on March 1, Charles complained about the high cost of her Epi-pen which is not covered by insurance.

Charles said she had a severe peanut allergy and she brought along an Epi-pen in case she suffered an anaphylactic shock to the mRNA injection.

Charles would have received her second dose around three or 4 weeks after her first shot -- or right before she died.

In a post dated March 15, Charles shared an image of her elderly mother getting the mRNA injection.

She captioned the image: "Mom got the vaccine while praying to the Lord! I'm sooooo happy! This took weeks of convincing by the way. It's gon be a hot elderly girl summer!"

Charles' followers reacted angrily after her sudden death.

One follower wrote: "I pray to God it doesn't kill her mom like it did her."

Another IG user wrote: "Now she knows why momma was afraid."

And a third user wrote: "You should have never convinced your mom to take this experimental drug smh!"

Mystery surrounds a Green Bay music teacher who died from "natural causes" at age 40, according to her obituary.

Sara Holub, a high school choir director, competed twice on "Jeopardy!" and she was named 2021 Teacher of Distinction.

She won $10,000 for making it to Jeopardy!'s semifinals, as well as a $2,500 grant for her classroom. She used the grant money to buy microphones for her students.

According to her obituary, Holub died from "natural causes." No other information was given -- such as a preexisting medical condition or a terminal illness.

The term "natural causes" usually denotes a patient who is expected to die. Someone who dies from natural causes does not require an autopsy.

However, friends say Holub was in good health before she died.

Holub's obituary does not mention that she received a dose of experimental mRNA injection four days before she died.

News articles that reported her death also do not mention that she received an mRNA injection just days before she passed.

Facebook removed a post that featured a photo showing Holub holding an "I was vaccinated" sticker on March 22.

She seemed relieved to receive the injection. Holub captioned the photo: "It's been a ridiculous year, but better days are coming!"

The post shows she received the injection at Prevea Health in Wisconsin. It isn't clear if she received the Moderna, Pfizer, or Johnson & Johnson injections.

Rev. Drene Keyes, of Virginia, was anxious about receiving her first dose of the still experimental Pfizer mRNA Covid-19 vaccine. So anxious that she asked a co-worker to go with her to the vaccination site.

The 58-year-old, "gifted grandmother of six" was in the high-risk category for Covid-19 with multiple preexisting conditions including diabetes, morbid obesity, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and sleep apnea.

Keyes' daughter, Lisa Jones, told WKTR her mom's job "made her eligible for the vaccine."

Keyes believed the vaccine would lessen her symptoms if she contracted the coronavirus.

Before she left home, Jones helped her put on her shoes.

"She was such a loving and generous person," Jones said.

A co-worker accompanied Keyes to a medical facility in Warsaw, where she got the injection on Saturday. Keyes waited the mandatory 15-minute observation period before heading to her car in the parking lot.

Her co-worker said she was getting into her car when she suddenly said, "Something is not right. Something's not right."

Keyes had difficulty breathing and began vomiting. She was rushed to VCU Tappahannock Hospital, where doctors administered Epipen (epinephrine for anaphylaxis), CPR and oxygen.

"They tried to remove fluid from her lungs. They called it 'flash pulmonary edema,' and doctors told me that it can be caused by anaphylaxis," said Jones (pictured right). "The doctor told me that often during anaphylaxis, chemicals are released inside of a person's body and can cause this to happen."

Anaphylaxis is a severe, life-threatening allergic reaction that can occur within seconds or minutes after exposure to a substance the person is allergic to.

People who suffer an anaphylactic reaction should receive an epinephrine injection immediately to counteract the allergen.

Signs and symptoms of an anaphylactic reaction include itchy rash, swelling of the tongue and throat, difficulty swallowing, difficulty inhaling, shortness of breath and light headedness.

The onset of symptoms can occur within seconds or minutes.

Health officials previously cautioned people not to take the mRNA vaccine if they had a severe allergic reaction in the past.

The risks -- including death -- were spelled out in the documents that Keyes signed before she got the vaccine.

Still, Jones is demanding answers. She believes more testing should have been done before the vaccines were rushed to market for a virus with a 99.4% survival rate.

"Why are we allowing people with underlying conditions to be guinea pigs for a vaccine that is still in clinical trials and emergency use?" Jones questioned.

Jones told WTVR she hopes her mother's death serves as a warning to doctors and health professionals to pre-screen patients prior to administering the vaccine.

"My mom was wanting to protect herself, and it did not turn out that way," Jones told WBRZ.

Health officials insist Keyes did not die from anaphylaxis or a reaction to the vaccine -- despite ER doctors treating her for anaphylaxis.

The CDC is also investigating the deaths of a 56-year-old Florida doctor about two weeks after getting his first Pfizer vaccine, and a 60-year-old California healthcare worker who died four days after his second injection with the Pfizer vaccine.

"Drene Keyes believed mainstream media, government health officials, her doctors and Big Pharma that Pfizer's vaccine was safe and it would protect her," said Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.

"Her faith and trust in those people and institutions may have cost her her life."

Pregnant mom blogger Emily Mitchell died unexpectedly after her doctor told her to undergo a fifth Caesarean section.

Mitchell, 36, died three days before Christmas, along with her unborn child, a boy named Joey. Her family said she was eating breakfast on Dec. 22 when she suddenly collapsed and "became unresponsive."

Mitchell was rushed to a local hospital where she was pronounced dead. No cause of death was disclosed.

Mitchell, who homeschooled her 4 children in a farmhouse on Rhode Island, announced her fifth pregnancy on her lifestyle blog the Hidden Way on Nov. 19.

YOU GUYS. NUMBER FIVE... Who guessed the secret?!!! you've probably noticed I've been a little MIA.. welp this be the reason lol ... Number FIVE comin in hot and we are here ... for ... it 11 weeks 2 days and counting.

Mitchell had hoped for a home birth, but she was advised by her doctor to undergo her fifth Caesarean section. She defended C-sections in a post to her 112,000 followers on December 8.

"This will be my FIFTH C-Section. However your baby gets here, just know YOUR EXPERIENCE is valid and worthy. YOU are no less a mother if you needed emergency medical intervention, had a planned c-section, or an epidural. You aren't a 'better' mother if you had a home birth or an unmedicated vaginal birth. And if you grew your brood through adoption or surrogacy or family blending? Those are YOUR babies and YOU SIT PROUDLY at the table of motherhood.?
?
"It's not a competition. There aren't awards handed out for homebirths or all-natural births. If you've been blessed with that, then that is incredible. Truly!! But if you haven't, please know and believe you have STILL BEEN BLESSED. You aren’t less-than, or second-class for needing to rely on a team of doctors for surgery. ALL that matters is that you have a child brought into the world. Entrusted to you to love and nurture."

According to Healthline.com, the most common reasons for a C-section are breech birth, fetal distress, and uterine rupture, which is the reason social media influencer Chrissy Teigen lost her unborn son.
