50 shared a collage of D’aja on his Facebook page as well as his thoughts on her death and the way he is viewed in the public eye. “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. “She was pretty, innocent and didnt deserve to die like that R.I.P D’Asia Robinson.”
