Love & Hip Hop Star Benzino Stable After Being Shot

“Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” star Benzino is stable and recovering after being shot today (Mar. 29th).

The rapper was reportedly leaving the funeral procession of his mother when he was shot by his nephew, 36-year-old Gai Scott.

“There has been growing family tension between Raymond Scott and Gai Scott,” Plymouth County District Attorney Timothy J. Cruz said in a statement. “At some point when the cars were side by side, Gai Scott fired several shots into the red Dodge SUV being driven by Raymond Scott.”

Following the shooting, Benzino was rushed to South Shore Hospital. Friend and LHHA co-star Stevie J updated fans by posting a photo of the former The Source owner from his hospital bed with the caption: “#VH1Boyz #ZinoGrigio #Sleazo #GodIsGood."

Glad to see he is OK!
