Our condolences go out to Nicki Minaj and her crew – two members of her team were stabbed on Tuesday evening (February 17) in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, leaving one deceased.
“Two members of my team were stabbed last night in Philly. One was killed. They had only been there for two days rehearsing for the tour.” the 32-year-old rapper wrote on Twitter.
“#Rp @myfabolouslife – these guys flew into Philly for my tour rehearsals 2 days ago and were both stabbed last night. #RIPDAYDAY condolences to your family. Unbelievable. Eric (on the right) is recovering. Another senseless act of violence that took the life of a great guy. So sad.” Nicki added on her Instagram, along with a photo of the victims.
De’Von Pickett passed away from the injuries and Eric Parker is reportedly in the hospital in critical condition. Our thoughts are with their friends and loved ones during this time.
