Man Charged With Murder In Death Of Nicki Minaj’s Crew Member



HipHollywood can confirm that the man believed to have fatally stabbed Nicki Minaj’s tour manger last month has been charged with murder.

A representative from the Philadelphia Courts Criminal Division tells HipHollywood that on Tuesday, Pierce Boykin, 31, was charged with murder and attempted murder in the death of 29-year-old De’Von Pickett.

Pickett was killed on February 18 during a fight outside of the Che Bar & Grill in Philadelphia. Nicki’s crew member, Eric Reed, 27, was also seriously injured.

Boykin, who was arrested on February 23, is also facing aggravated assault charges, terrorist threats, possessing an instrument of crime, simple assault and recklessly endangering another person.

We are told that a preliminary hearing for Pierce will be held on March 11 at the Criminal Justice Center in Philadelphia.

Following the tragic incident, Minaj posted a photo of the men on Instagram with the caption:

‘These guys flew into Philly for my tour rehearsals 2 days ago and were both stabbed last night. #RIPDAYDAY condolences to your family. Unbelievable. Eric (on the right) is recovering. Another senseless act of violence that took the life of a great guy. So sad.”

Perez Hilton and Youtube Fitness star Caleb Mitchell were amongst the 80 folks taking the class, which also included instructors and members of the University of Southern California dance team.

“What I love most about Zumba is that they make exercising fun and make it accessible to everyone all over the world. It’s a movement,” Derulo said. “They get great global rhythms and pair it with a routine everyone can do that will give you a total body workout that feels more like party than exercise. I admire that because you don’t typically associate dancing with working out and that’s the beauty of it.”


No word on if Derulo will be popping up at more classes, but if he does now you won’t be surprised.
