That is so scary! According to brand new reports, Usher and Rich the Kid were both at a recording studio in West Hollywood when someone opened fire, attacking the two stars’ entourages!
TMZ claims that a few armed men took Usher and Rich’s associates by storm, pistol whipping violently at least one bodyguard.
Unfortunately, the terrifying attack did not end there as the attackers reportedly shot about ten bullets while escaping the scene.
Thankfully, it is being reported that nobody was hit by the bullets which means that they are generally unharmed.
WeHo Sheriff’s department is currently investigating the scary attack.
The news outlet also claims that Usher was safe inside the studio when the attack happened, but that was not the case with Rich the Kid who was outside at the time!
Civilian Public Information Officer for LA’s County Sheriff’s Office, Nicole Nishida released a statement via HollywoodLife that reads: ‘I cannot confirm Usher was involved, but I can confirm the fact that at approximately 3:27 today multiple suspects allegedly robbed victims at a local business and shots were fired.’
Furthermore, it is believed, as per TMZ, that ‘the suspect or suspects made off with a ton of cash and jewelry.’
That makes sense since only a few hours before the attack, Rich took to social media to show off his wealth.
The rapper posted a snap of him in front of a purple Lamborghini and holding stacks of cash in his hands.
Furthermore, the man was wearing multiple gold and diamond chains and bracelets at the time so is anyone even surprised some dangerous people couldn’t resist the riches?
‘For motivational purposes only,’ Rich wrote in the caption.
Yes, it may have indeed motivated someone to shoot him and steal his expensive accessories and money!
