A really bad week took an even worse turn for Benzino. Reshanentertainment.com is reporting that the Love & Hip Hop Atlanta cast member was shot three times while leaving his mother’s funeral today in Boston. Apparently Ben-Z got caught in the crossfire between rivaling and was shot by his own nephew whose currently in custody. He was shot three times and is currently in critical condition at South Shore Hospital in Boston.
Plymouth County District Attorney Timothy Cruz said,
“The incident was between two vehicles whose occupants knew each other. The driver of a Bentley shot the driver of a red Dodge SUV, who exited his car and was taken to the Duxbury police station by a passerby. The injured red Dodge SUV driver, who officials say was in his 40s, was then transported by ambulance to the hospital.The Bentley driver has been arrested and will be arraigned Monday on a charge of armed assault with intent to murder.”
I’m sure this isn’t how Ben expected the day he buried his mother to end, but it makes it even sadder that his family couldn’t put aside their petty beefs long enough to put the poor woman into the ground. Ben expressed his heartache earlier this week on Twitter.
God knows I have been through alot in my life, BUT EVERY INCH OF GOOD, KINDNESS AND LOVE IN MY SOUL IS BECAUSE OF THIS WOMAN. A BIG PART OF ME IS LOST NOW AND I WILL NEVER BE THE SAME, MA WORDS CANT EXPRESS MY LOVE FOR YOU.I WILL MISS EVERY BREATHING MOMENT, I DON’T KNOW HOW I WILL CONTINUE KNOWING YOU ARE NOT HERE. Im lost.
There’s been no official word from Benzino yet, but I’m sending him some positive energy during what I’m sure is a very tough time, and hoping that his family can either give him strength or keep the negativity away from him.
