Solange’s business partner Armina Mussa (pictured above on left) was stabbed ten times during a vicious April 2015 encounter that forced Solange to cancel her Coachella performance. Read what she says happened inside….
In April 2015, Armina Mussa, an up and coming artist (who happens to be besties with Solange and artistic and creative head of Saint Heron) was stabbed ten times by Arronesia Christophe (below). The incident landed her in intensive care.
Details surrounding the case were quite sketchy, but now we’re able to piece together the puzzle pieces of this she said/she said. Let’s start with the defendant….
Arronesia (who was booked on charges of attempted second-degree murder last week) says she arrived at a high school friend’s home one evening when Armina, who is said friend’s ex-girlfriend, ran out of the home and asked her to leave. Arronesia reportedly replied, “We’re just friends, why do I have to leave?”
Police records state Armina approached Arronesia, who then grabbed a small folding knife from her car and told Armina to “get back,” and to “please back away.”
Arronesia then claims SHE was attacked, and that’s is why she began to stab Armina. SMH….
The police report adds,
“(Arronesia) stated she did not think she had stabbed the victim due to the harder thrown punches that she received from the victim.”
SIDEBAR: Arronesia did stay on the scene until the NOPD arrived.
Now…….a new article in the NOLA Defender shares Armina’s side of the story, and it differs from what Arronesia told the police and the Times-Picayune.
For starters….Armina remembers the event differently. She also says she was the victim.
“I was faced with a kitchen knife that the aggressor and trespasser had in her hand while her vehicle was parked in front of my home. When I approached the aggressor and trespasser’s vehicle window to ask that she leave my property, she sat there with her head tilted towards me, while waving the kitchen knife in a malicious demeanor. I then said to her through the window, ‘You need to leave.’ The aggressor and trespasser then proceeded to exit her vehicle and wave the kitchen knife in my face while questioning me aggressively in regards to why she should leave.”
“We began to argue for no more than a minute until I felt extremely threatened and struck. I was afraid to turn my back on an armed, angry, and seemingly violent person. So, I took the initiative to use a forceful handle on her by attempting to take her down and knock the knife free, which unfortunately did not work. The aggressor and trespasser began slashing me with the kitchen knife repeatedly until I was completely weakened and bloody. I backed up. Shocked, I said, ‘Why would you stab me?’ She appeared to have no remorse. I was stabbed from my abdomen up to my head. I then removed my own shirt to stop the bleeding from my head while I shouted my prayers to God so hard before losing consciousness.”
When asked why she’s sharing her story now, Armina said,
“Amongst the extensive physical damage I have endured, coming to peace with myself mentally has unfortunately been a struggle. The accounts that have been circulating regarding what took place made it difficult to carry on.”
The NOLA Defender went on to contact Solange, who praised her friend for how she’s handled herself.
“Watching Armina’s strength, courage, grace, and positivity during this time of hardship has been nothing short of a miracle. She is a true reflection of the word, survivor, and a testament of resilience. I couldn’t be more proud of my dear friend.”
As we stated earlier, charges have been filed and we’ll keep you posted as this case moves forward. In the meantime, international fashionista Solage is still working on the Saint Records follow-up to her successful TRUE ep.
