Videos of Lustre have since surfaced of her speaking in her brother’s funeral.

Messages posted on her IG Stories read, “May I request to please refrain from posting/reposting photos and videos of me from the funeral. Let’s give respect.”

“To everyone who’s been judging me for the past few days, remember this… You will always see me UP but never DOWN… Get lost please.

“And to everyone who’s been sharing me stories of weakness… I’m reading. Wait for me… I GOT YOU.”
