HipHollywood can confirm that A$AP Rocky’s Los Angeles mansion was hit in an armed robbery on Tuesday night.
The Los Angeles Police Department tells us that around 11:30 p.m., officers responded to a call of a home invasion robbery. When they arrived, a woman, believed to be the cousin of Rocky, was on the scene and detailed exactly what went down.
We are told that the woman had just arrived to Rocky’s home and when she was attempting to leave again, she was confronted by three men, one of which was armed. The men forced her back inside the home where they led her to the rapper’s safe.
The suspects asked for her to open the safe, but she did not know the code. We are told that’s when the three men attempted to walk out with the safe, but were unable to carry it past the sidewalk.
The suspects, however, did manage to get their hands on $1.5 million worth of jewelry. A$AP was not home at the time.
The incident is currently under investigation and no suspects are in custody. As for who might be behind the robbery, sources tell TMZ it doesn’t appear to be a random act.
Rakim Mayers, the rapper’s legal name, has not responded to the robbery. As for his cousin, we are told she was uninjured.
No Joke: Bill Cosby Is Back On Stage Doing Stand-Up
We are not trying to shame the elderly, but we are super confused why Bill Cosby is back on stage doing stand-up. He is after all 80-years old and going blind, but apparently that’s all apart of his routine.
Cosby did a set on Monday at LaRose Jazz Club in Philly and poked fun at his visual impairment amongst other personal anecdotes. He didn’t touch his pending trial, but many suspect his resurgence into the public eye is all a ploy to revitalize his image.
Just two weeks ago Cosby attended a dinner with friends and let reporters tag along to ask questions and take photos. This time around Cosby announced on his Facebook that he’d be doing a set a couple hours before. He wore a sweatshirt that said “hello friend” and also played the drums alongside the Tony Williams Jazz Quartet.
Folks in the audience are laughing … so maybe it’s working.
The disgraced comedian’s retrial on sexual assault charges is set to begin in April, and a new jury selection begins at the end of March. He averted a decision this past June when a jury couldn’t agree on a verdict … ending in a mistrial.
