A buddy of Lil Peep — a rapper who died of a drug overdose last year — was criminally charged with supplying a fatal amount of drugs to a woman shortly after the singer’s funeral, according to a report published Wednesday.
Michael Jones gave heroin and fentanyl to Diana Haikova three days after the singer’s funeral in Long Island on Dec. 2, 2017, according to TMZ.
Jones, a member of Lil Peep’s group named Goth Boi Clique, was named in a “newly unsealed federal indictment,” the website reported.
He was arrested and charged with distributing the illegal drugs to Haikova and to someone else a few months later, the report said.
Jones allegedly met Haikova at a hotel party three days after the funeral service and supplied her with the drugs, authorities said.
Haikova’s father said she moved to Manhattan to pursue a career tied to the financial end of the modeling industry.
“She was a lovely girl,” said her father, Rob Arnott, 64. “She moved to New York to advance her career and less than three weeks later she was dead. She was dead from an overdose of drugs that she had never taken previously.”
He welcomed the news of an arrest in the case.
“We will be very pleased when we eventually find justice is done,” he said.
Lil Peep, whose real name was Gustav Ahr, was found unresponsive by his manager in his tour bus before a performance in Tucson, Arizona on Nov. 15, 2017.
A toxicology report concluded he passed away due to an accidental overdose of Fentanyl and Xanax. He also had marijuana, cocain, Tramadol and several other prescription medications in his system.
