Rick Ross Hires 24-Hour Armed Body Guards
Rick Ross isn’t playing games with his safety in the wake of a gunman opening fire at his Rolls Royce earlier this week. Reportedly, the “Hustlin’” rapper was leaving his 37th birthday celebration in Fort Lauderdale in the early hours of Monday morning when his car was fired at multiple times. During the melee, the car crashed into a nearby restaurant.
Taking the close call very seriously, the Maybach Music Group CEO has reportedly hired 24-hour armed guards to keep him safe. According to TMZ:
“Ross — aka Ricky Rozay — was already using armed bodyguards for protection at major events like concerts and public appearances … but now he’s decided he wants a full-time security detail.”
“Sources close to Ross tell TMZ … the rapper had been getting threats for a while … but he wasn’t too concerned. But we’re told Ross considers the shooting to be an ‘eye-opener’ and will do whatever it takes to keep himself safe.”
It must have really sucked to end your birthday celebration in a hail of bullets!! Fortunately, neither Rick nor his girlfriend, who was riding in the car with him, were injured in the shooting. Cops have not yet made any arrests.
