Natina Reed

Baby Daddy Kurupt

Footing the Funeral Bill

11/3/2012 10:13 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1103-getty-natina-reed-kurupt-tmzNatina Reed's funeral is being held today in her hometown -- and TMZ has learned that rapper Kurupt, the father of her son, is covering all the expenses. 

Reed -- who passed away on October 26 after she was struck by a car -- is being laid to rest at the Abundant Life Church in Lithonia, GA.

According to our sources, Kurupt -- the father of Reed's 10-year-old son Tren -- is footing the bill for the service as well as for the gathering after.

We're told Tren will remain in Kurupt's custody -- like he has for the past four years -- and that Kurupt hopes Tren will maintain a close relationship with Reed's family.

Chilli and T-Boz from TLC, rappers Big Boi, Daz and Snoop Dogg (or whatever he's calling himself these days) are all expected to be in attendance today ... as well as members of Reed's R&B group, Blaque.

You all are so ignorant. First, he'sbeen living with his father for a little over 6 MONTHS. Her group just got back together duh! She was not arguing with anyone. She was a Christian who made mistakes just like everyone. I see why she became so private now. It was her time to go. I love you babe. RIP pumpkin

Ok first off RIP NATINA you will be missed. Second this man was more than baby daddy,they were engaged before she was pregnant but never married. Third he recieved custody because she was having a hard time coping with left eyes death for a while. And even if you can' t mentally take care of your child she did by given karupt custody. And in my eyes it takes a strong mom and loving one to do that. It could've been worse.

we are all gods ppl living on borrowed time we all will go. You can die tragically as well. I pray for all of you with the negativaty. Friends lost a sister, parents lost a child, a child lost a mom, and a man lost his first love n mom of his child

Oh and the driver of the car will never be the same again. They are in my prayers as well. Hope Natina's family will receive the answers they need to heal.

A rapper acting like a gentleman and good father. A refreshing change from men that think acting like a pimp makes you man.
