In a brief interview for the HBO series, Music Box, Lottie says of her boyfriend’s death: “He knew, he knew the f*****.”

In the series, Tommy Oliver explores the struggles of the young musician. drug addiction and depression, featuring unseen footage from before his untimely death.
The film director said: “He was both ready and able to discuss the things he was going through without any filters and without any shame or respect for how it was received.
“For so many people who bottle things up or don’t have the language to discuss something… to be able to see someone who is willing to do that and can make incredible music with that, I love. Looks like it was something really special.”
Though he never got the chance to meet Juice Wright, he said he got to know the lovable, goofy, man who was worried about losing himself to superstardom through hundreds of hours of unseen footage.

He said the goal became to “get out of the way and allow [Juice Wrld] To tell your story.
“And for us to see who he was without the prejudice of an agenda, or the prejudice of trying to fit him into some preconceived notion of who he was or who he could be, or from certain things was running away.”
