Rich The Kid & Usher Involved In Studio Armed Robbery: Report
According to TMZ, Rich The Kid and his entourage were ambushed Tuesday afternoon in a famous West Hollywood studio (Westlake Recording Studios), where Usher was also recording in as well. Multiple shots were fired, but luckily no one was hit. Eye witnesses say the man who opened fire was running away from the studio when he started shooting behind him.
Law enforcement sources say Usher was in the studio, but not the target. Rich The Kid was outside when it all went down, and it appears he was the focus of the robbery. Multiple entourage members were also attacked, and at least one bodyguard was badly pistol whipped.
County Sheriff deputies are swarming the studio and surrounding blocks right now, searching for suspects and collecting evidence. It’s unclear if anyone was hit when the shots were fired, but we’re told the suspect or suspects made off with a ton of cash and jewelry.
Just hours before the robbery, Rich coincidentally posted an Instagram photo of himself holding stacks of cash while standing in front of a Lamborghini. “For motivational purposes only,” he captioned it.
