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.”

The oft-aggressive, animal advocacy organization has called Drizzy out and is demanding that his OVO company part ways with Canada Goose. In a letter to the “God’s Plan” superstar PETA urged “the rapper to cut ties with Canada Goose,” a company that, according to PETA, “touts a phony respect for the environment yet kills ducks and geese for their down.” Apparently, the outerwear company also uses painful steel traps to catch wild coyote and use their fur for collars.

Drake has yet to respond to PETA’s demands, but he probably should soon … or he could be covered in red paint by the weekend.
