A few YBF celebs are mourning the death of a friend and praying for the recovery of another friend after the men were stabbed outside of a bar in Philadelphia early this morning.
Nicki Minaj, Fabolous and Rihanna all sent out their condolences on Instagram after they learned about their two friends, who were reportedly in Philly working on Nicki’s tour rehearsals, were attacked with a knife during an alleged fight. The fight resulted in the injury of one man who’s currently in critical condition fighting for his life. And, unfortunately, the other man has died.
Nicki announced the men were a part of her team saying:
Fabolous posted a picture of the two men (atop) expressing his sadness and disbelief saying:
My heart is heavy right now… God opened my eyes this morning at 9:49am. For some reason at that time I woke up thinking about both of these guys. They both work with me, but I couldn’t figure out why they were in my mind at 1st wake up. Wasn’t sure if I had a dream & they were in it or just some wake up & process things type shit.. But at 10:04 my brother hit me & told me that they both were fatally stabbed in Philly last night. My friend @daydaydoesdis (left) died & my friend Eric Parker is in critical condition in the hospital fighting for his life. I am still in shock & don’t want to believe this. And it hurts even more knowing how good these two dudes are. How hard these guys work. And how loyal they are to whoever they are down with & each other. Please send Eric Parker your blessings & a prayer for him to pull thru. And RIP to the fallen soldier Day Day. I can’t even believe I’m saying that with your name attached to it. & I HATE this being a post!! I will miss your energy, your vibe, & you but I’ll hold on to your spirit!! #RIPDayDay #PrayForEricParker
And Rih sent out a message saying:
NBC Philadelphia reports:
The argument began around 2 a.m. Wednesday inside Che Bar & Grill along Stenton Avenue in Philadelphia’s West Oak Lane neighborhood.
“We believe that both of the victims, as well as the perpetrator, were all inside of this bar and that’s when an argument started,” said Chief Inspector Scott Small.
The argument spread outside the bar where one of the men, believed to be around 30 years old, pulled out a knife.
A 29-year-old stabbing victim died. A 27-year-old suffered multiple stab wounds to his side that left him in critical condition.
Employees at nearby Einstein Medical Center called 911 around 2:30 a.m. Wednesday after the two victims arrived in the emergency room.
Police later returned to the 6300 block of Stenton Avenue where they found personal items, a cellphone and blood on the sidewalk outside the bar. A Philadelphia Police crime camera and business surveillance cameras possibly captured at least part of the incident, said investigators.
Police said the suspect was last seen driving off in a gray Buick LeSabre.
Earlier, witnesses told investigators that the dispute possibly had to do with a recently fired employee. Small said that police were working to verify if that was actually the case.
Nicki’s “The Pinkprint” European tour is expected to kick-off March 16th in Sweden.
Such sad news all around. We’re keeping both families in our prayers.
