The robbery happened on Tuesday afternoon (Feb. 12) outside of the Westlake Recording Studio. Witnesses claimed a suspect was seen fleeing the scene, shooting as he ran away. Authorities stated Usher was at the recording studio but not hurt while Rich the Kid was outside. Police also believe Rich the Kid was the intended target.
Multiple members of their entourage were hurt with one bodyguard was “badly pistol-whipped.” Robbers made off with cash and jewelry but it isn’t known whose possessions were stolen.
The rapper shared a photo a few hours before the robbery took place, showing off stacks of cash with the caption, “for motivational purposes only.”
Just last year, the “Plug Walk” rapper was hospitalized after a reported robbery and assault. The incident happened in June 2018 as he was visiting Tori Brixx, his girlfriend at the time.
Neither User or Rich the Kid have commented about the armed robbery.
