Honey Cocaine fires back at Freddy E rumours [News]
Seattle, WA – Freddy E, a 22-year-old rapper/comedian signed to Tyga’s record label, was found dead on January 5th after an apparent suicide. Toronto rapper Honey Cocaine has found herself surrounded by controversy in connection to Freddy’s death. Before committing suicide, Freddy, aka Frederick Eugene Buhl, eerily took to Twitter to vent his emotions.
It started on the afternoon of January 5 with, “Annnd, my day is ruined.” A series of tweets expressing his heartbreak and sorrow followed before the messages started to take an even more disparaging tone:
“If there’s a God then He’s calling me back home. This barrel never felt so good next to my dome. It’s cold & I’d rather die than live alone” was followed by “It’s… all… bad… y’all. *puts finger around trigger*”. He tweeted at family a few times (“I love you Mom.”) before sending a final “I’m sorry” tweet just under 2 hours after the series of tweets originally began. He apparently killed himself not long after that with a single rifle shot to the head.
Since then, Honey Cocaine, another member of Tyga’s Last Kings Entertainment imprint and falsely rumoured to be Freddy E’s ex-girlfriend, has had to defend herself in connection to his suicide after an onslaught of online attacks claimed she was to blame. Freddy first made his connection to Honey public with a post on his own Facebook page this past December but he never claimed she was his girlfriend: [More after the jump]
“I talk to Honey damn near every day. I text her. She calls me,” wrote Freddy on Facebook. “We talk on the phone for hours. I’ve met some of her family and she’s met some of mine. We call each other by our birth names. I’d take a bullet for her, as would she take one for me. I actually know her. Where you see a rapper, I see a rider. Y’all can’t tell me nothing about her.”
On Wednesday, MTV published an interview with Honey regarding the rumors and she stated the pair were ‘just friends’ and nothing more.
Despite all that, Honey has been on the receiving end of a lot of hate, and mostly through social networking. Honey addressed her own 450K+ Twitter followers to clear the air, but her sorrow has been called fake due to previous tweets accusing Freddy of being “thirsty” to get with her. Here’s what Honey wrote:
“To say I caused what happened is ignorance.. You know nothing about our friendship or the story, hate me if you feel.. We loved eachother.. We were homies. We had a bond and a connection. For people to attack me acting like I made him do it is a shame. I said some foolish things cause I thought he was joking, he does shit like that to me all the time. This is crazy..,” she wrote on Jan. 6, followed by a few more:
“People think they have an idea but it’s not your business.. RIP my angel, my condolences. From the first time we met, we said we’d do whatever for eachother. Bonnie and fucking Clyde. If you love him, respect us and our situation!”
Despite stating her position, the criticism continued. People have even taken shots at her for finding time to tweet. One Twitter user went as far as suggesting that had she been Freddy E’s girlfriend, she should would have “went to his family’s house & apologized then took a picture of my tears, not tweet.”
It hasn’t helped that some high profile Tweeters have added to the mix. Kat Stacks wrote, “Murderer. She don’t even sound remorseful SMH. Instead of worrying about defending your image of being a murderer, she should be focused on his soul.” The tweets have since been deleted and replaced with the PR-friendly, “I shouldn’t of had said that, my apologies to the grieving girlfriend.”
Hopefully the interview with MTV will quiet the hate and offer Honey some space to grieve the tragic loss of a close friend. Rest In Peace, Freddy E.
Aside from his music and connection to Tyga, Freddy E was well known for his spoken-word pieces and comedy routines, which he published on his JerkTV YouTube channel. You can click here to visit the channel now.
Freddy’s father, Frederick Douglass Buhl, posted this message on Facebook on behalf of the Buhl family:
“Our family is saddened beyond words; our loss is great; this tragedy is enormous and unforseen. Not only our family, but the world has lost a talented, sensitive, brilliant young man who lit up our existence with his. We love him a great deal, and he will be surely missed. We pray that God will now watch over him, and we ask all of you to include Frederick and our entire family in your thoughts and prayers.”
If there’s a God then He’s calling me back home. This barrel never felt so good next to my dome. It’s cold & I’d rather die than live alone.
