Rapper Rich The Kid has been hospitalized after he was attacked and robbed at gunpoint when two masked men broke into his girlfriend’s home Thursday night.
Multiple sources told TMZ Friday, that the 25-year-old musician was beaten while visiting Tori Brixx’s home where the robbers demanded cash and jewelry. Rich The Kid, born Dimitri Leslie Roger, reportedly tried to fend them off, but three more men showed up with guns and beat him up before getting away with a large amount of cash and jewelry.
The rapper all but confirmed the attack with a shot shared on Instagram Friday showing him lying on a gurney, bandaged up with an IV in his arm. The caption next to the post didn’t say anything further.
Authorities were reportedly called in following the robbery, but the outlet has been unable to confirm if a police report was taken.
The attack comes only hours after he announced that he had received eight platinum plaques in 2018 so far, including for one of his latest singles “Plug Walk” from his new album “The World Is Yours” on his Instagram story. Along with the announcement he shared a message that simply read, “More money more problems … real shit.”
