Family of J $tash’s girlfriend pay tribute to mom ‘shot dead in front of her 3 kids by rapper who turned gun on himself'

THE family of J $tash's girlfriend has paid tribute to the mom after she was killed in a suspected murder-suicide.

The rapper, real name Justin Joseph, allegedly shot his partner Jeanette Gallegos, 28, before turning the gun on himself at a home in Los Angeles on New Years Day.

Lieutenant Derrick Alfred told The Sun that the pair had been living together in Temple City for the past few months.

He said that the couple had been arguing about their relationship before J $tash reportedly took Gallegos into the master bedroom and locked the door.

Gallegos' kids heard gunshots from the room and called the cops. Officers found the rapper's girlfriend on the floor and said she sustained several gunshot wounds.

Family members and friends have been paid tribute to California State University graduate Gallegos.

Her sister Erika Chavez said: “A tragic and unexpected loss for my family & nephews God has gained another angel.

“My sister was full of life, she was the sweetest most caring person, always there for everyone who needed her.

A GoFundMe page has been created to help cover funeral expenses.

Cops said the male victim sustained an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, cops told local radio station KFI-AM. Alfred branded the situation "very tragic".


Cops revealed it was a child who called 911 but Alfred said he wasn't sure if it came in before or after Gallegos was shot.

Gallegos' kids ran out of the house and towards deputies when officers arrived at the scene.

The children, who are not related to J $tash, were unhurt and are now in the care of their father.

Investigators were awaiting autopsy and forensic results, including information from ballistics tests, to confirm what took place inside the house.

As news of the suspected murder-suicide spread on social media, artist SpotemGottem penned, "Speechless wishing this is a dream damn J."

The rapper tagged J $tash's Instagram account, adding, "Damn fam this hurt that gang but nobody kno what u going through till it all end."

Songs by J $tash on YouTube include Flexin, Guerillas, and Nuthin (remix).

J $tash grew up in South Florida then moved to New York, where he was born, according to a 2017 interview with Crack Magazine.

He told the magazine that aside from music, he was focused on "building companies and opening up stores in different countries."

The rapper said: "Of which I’ve been doing on the low secretly. Rapping was just platform to get myself out there and grow."

He added that Lil Wayne's number one assistant was a mentor to him and brought him into "that world."
