Shots have reportedly been fired on the set of Tekashi 6ix9ine, Kanye West and Nicki Minaj’s latest music video.
While Nicki was not at the scene, Tekashi and Kanye were thought to be inside the Beverly Hills house where the gun was fired.
The BEBE singer’s crew had rented the $80 million estate to use as the backdrop for the video for one of the songs on his new album, which features Kanye and Nicki.
According to TMZ, police received a ‘shots fired’ call at 10:25pm local time on Thursday evening (November 8). The house is located on one of the most exclusive, expensive streets in Beverly Hills.
A witness who was reportedly on set, said approximately eight shots were fired, with at least one bullet firing through a window of the house, believed to be a bedroom.
No one was said to be injured as a result of the incident, which appeared to be a drive-by shooting. Production on the music video was halted and Kanye immediately left the scene.
Detectives are now reviewing the surveillance video as part of their investigation.
The incident comes just three months after shots were fired on the set of Tekashi69 and 50 Cent’s music video, which was being filmed in Brooklyn.
TMZ reported the two rappers were on the set of their music video for the song Get The Strap, when a white Porsche with a New Jersey license plate turned up, before firing at least 11 gun shots.
Last month (October), Tekashi69, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, was sentenced to four years probation in a child sex case.
The sentencing was exactly what the rapper’s team had hoped for, causing his entourage to erupt in cheers in the courtroom.
He was also handed 1000 hours of community service after pleading guilty to one count of Use of a Child in a Sexual Performance from an incident which took place in 2015.
After the hearing, TMZ report the rapper said to the judge:
I have millions of youth that look at me as a role model and the last place I want to be is incarcerated, they don’t deserve it. Thank you.
A representative for the rapper added:
Daniel understands what he must now do moving forward and we will be with him every step of the way.
We also want to thank the judge for being very fair and impartial.
