Despite Ayala being XXXTentacion’s last publicly known girlfriend, a source revealed to TMZ that X and Sanchez had been together for quite some time before his death. In fact, the source claimed the two had “been dating for months.”

The Blast reported that prosecutors named Sanchez as “a relevant person” in court documents pertaining to suspect Michael Boatwright’s role in the the murder case, suggesting she had info about his death as she was “someone who spent lots of time with the hip-hop star.”

According to The Blast, Sanchez currently lives with Bernard in a mansion XXXTentacion picked out before his death.

2. XXXTentacion knew Jenesis was pregnant.

Though news about Sanchez’s pregnancy didn’t break until after XXXTentacion’s death, sources close to the rapper reportedly told TMZ that he was aware that she was carrying his child. They kept the news a secret because X “wanted her to have a stress-free pregnancy.”

3. Jenesis and XXXTentacion’s baby name is Gekyume.

In December 2018, Bernard uploaded a photo of XXXTentacion and Sanchez to Instagram and apparently dropped the baby’s name, captioning it “Gekyume’s mom.”

Those familiar with XXXTentacion will recognize that the name “Gekyume” pays homage to the rapper, who coined the term Gekyume meaning “a different state” or “next universe of thought.”
