Master P pleaded with Tytyana to enter rehab
The late daughter of Master P spoke about her struggles with substance abuse in a 2016 episode of Growing Up Hip Hop. She opened up about her substance abuse issues, also revealing her mother, Sonya, also battled addiction, according to Hip Hop DX.
In the same episode, Master P urged his daughter to seek treatment in a rehab facility, later saying during a confessional, according to The Hollywood Reporter:
“I really hope TyTy is serious about making a change. In my house, I’m a drill sergeant because you need somebody to tame you and tell you ‘I’m gonna fix this.’ If you need to get help, we’re here for you.”
Tytyana Miller did not appear to have any active social media accounts. Some reports on her death feature images of her look-alike sister Itali Miller.
