Despite many reports stating that Freddy E was an artist under Tyga's wing - same as Honey Cocaine - it appears as though they may have been false rumors. According to I Am Jason Lee, Freddy E was actually not signed to Tyga's label, nor did Tyga know him prior to news spreading that he had taken his own life.
Apparently, Jason Lee contacted a close source to Freddy E within the last 24 hours, at which point it was confirmed that Tyga had no relationship with Freddy. In that case, the only possible way for him to have come in contact with Tyga was through Freddy's past relationship with Tyga's artist Honey Cocaine.
Honey is currently in the process of mourning his death, as he committed suicide just days ago, and even though she's been a target of some heavy slander from various individuals, she is going to make an appearance on Power 106 tomorrow, January 8th to speak out about his passing.
