Nicki Minaj had a lucky escape.
Bullets that fired at Tekashi69’s music video shoot had entered the rapper’s dressing room but she had not arrived at the scene yet. The news comes after Kanye West confirmed his safety to worried fans after it was reported he was at the mansion where the video was being filmed.
Now, sources close to the production have told TMZ that at least one bullet pierced the window of the master bedroom where Nicki and her crew were set to chill during the video shoot. The publication claims that the original plan was for Tekashi, also known as Tekashi 6ix9ine, to be in that room, but he decided the day before that the Barbie Dreams hitmaker should have it.
Tekashi was filming a video at an $80 million (£61 million) estate in Beverly Hills on Thursday night when gunshots were reportedly heard ringing out. According to TMZ, police received a call at 10.25pm and rushed to the shoot. A witness told the website that eight shots were fired in an apparent drive-by. One bullet entered a bedroom of the building. Nobody was hurt in the incident.
50 Cent posted this picture of a bullet hole in a bedroom window at the reported house where Tekashi’s video was shooting. Production of the music video was halted following the incident as police are continuing to investigate the scene.
