Rapper Benzino was shot while on his way to his mother's funeral this weekend. Crazy! Is nothing sacred?
Even crazier? It was a relative who fired the bullet.
The rapper, born Raymond Scott, was traveling in the funeral procession in Duxbury, Massachusetts on Saturday morning (March 29), when he was hit in the shoulder by a bullet.
The authorities allege that his nephew Gai Scott did the deed, pulling up alongside his uncle's car and taking aim at him through the window after the two had a dispute.
Benzino's rep issued this media statement: "He was shot in the shoulder while attending his mom's funeral... At this time we ask that you keep Benzino in your prayers as we are hoping for a speedy recovery."
He is currently in critical condition.
Meanwhile, Gai Scott has been charged with armed assault with intent to murder in connection to the shooting. He is due to appear in Plymouth District Court today, March 31.
That's some serious family dysfunction right there.
What do you think of this crazy sitch?
