Armed robbers target rapper Post Malone in home burglary, assault one and loot over $20k
On September 1, according to reports, three armed robbers are said to have invaded a house in the San Fernando Valley area, apparently targeting the 23-year-old rapper.
It looks like rapper Post Malone has escaped yet another violent incident, after a close brush with death at least twice in less than a month.
On September 1 (Saturday), according to reports, three armed robbers are said to have invaded a house in the San Fernando Valley area, apparently targeting the 23-year-old rapper. After breaking into the house post-midnight, having smashed the front window, the burglars apparently yelled: "Where's Post Malone?" However, the three men in question appeared to have mistaken the house for Post Malone's as the rapper no longer lives there, reports TMZ.
Instead, the home invaders went on to assault the man, who was at the time residing in the house, whipping him with a pistol and robbing at least $20,000 worth of jewelry, cash and mobile phones. The burglary is currently under investigation as law enforcement officials try to figure out if the latest case is connected to another robbery that took place just hours later. Apparently, the second hit was at the residence where American hip-hop duo Rae Sremmurd were living.
This latest case of celebrity home invasion just adds to a series of previous incidents during which homes of A-listers like Wiz Khalifa, Bella Thorne, Christina Milian, Yasiel Puig and John Mayer were targeted.
As for Post Malone, this serves as yet another narrow escape. In the recent past, the 'Psycho' hitmaker was involved in an emergency landing situation, following which his luxury car crashed into another in a road accident. The rapper was in a white Rolls-Royce Wraith when the car crash took place in West Hollywood according to California police.
However, Malone managed to get out without suffering any injuries. Later, the rapper took to social media, talking about the incident, writing, "god must hate me lol". As per Sergeant Andrew Myers from the Beverly Hills Police Department, the Rolls-Royce was actually being driven by his assistant while Malone was a passenger. No account of injury or alcohol abuse was reported, in connection with the accident.
And of course, before all this, Malone was involved in a plane accident, forcing the Gulfstream IV to circle airspace in the Northeast to burn the fuel, before it could land safely in New York's Stewart Airport.
