50 Cent Helps Pay For Funeral Of Queens Native D’aja Robinson,14
Rapper 50 Cent says he sprung for the horse and carriage that carried the casket of slain 14-year-old D’aja Robinson at her funeral Friday.
The Queens native, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, posted on his Facebook page in memory of the teen shot to death as she sat on a city bus.
“People always try and paint negative images about me I’m the most genuine down to earth person and I didn’t forget where I came from I came through for baby girl by providing a horse and carriage for her,” he wrote, along with a collage of pictures of D’aja and her funeral.
“She was pretty, innocent and didnt deserve to die like that R.I.P D’Asia Robinson.”
The white horse drawn carriage carried D’aja’s white casket from the Friday service, which drew 2,500 people including hundreds of teenagers.
Police believe the girl was not the target of the shooting. A 16-year old was questioned in the case but released with no charges.
