PnB Rock's Girlfriend Says the Late Rapper "Saved My Life" Before His Shooting Death
PnB Rock's girlfriend, Stephanie Sibounheuang, has broken her silence on the late rapper's tragic murder. On Oct. 13, roughly one month after PnB Rock was killed at a Roscoe's Chicken & Waffles restaurant in South Los Angeles, Sibounheuang shared an Instagram post mourning his death. "I am 100% not ok," she wrote in a caption. "If I wasn't spiritual I could kill my self (but then I'll go to hell and my man not there) My man saved my life, Throwing me under that table. I'm not supposed to be here but bc of him. I am. No one would be able to handle this. TBH, I can't even handle this."
Sibounheuang and PnB Rock, real name Rakim Allen, were dining together at the restaurant on Sept. 12 when the Philadelphia rapper was shot and killed during a robbery. He was 30 years old and left behind two daughters, Milan and Xuri. The suspects in PnB Rock's shooting death — Freddie Lee Trone and his 17-year-old son — have since been arrested and charged.
At the time of the incident, the Los Angeles Times reported that Sibounheuang posted a photo on her Instagram Story with her and PnB Rock's location tagged, causing backlash toward the former on social media. It was later confirmed by Los Angeles police chief Michael Moore that the rapper posted his own location shortly before the shooting, per a Fox 11 broadcast.
In Sibounheuang's Instagram post, which included a video montage of her and PnB Rock, she wrote of the tragic incident: "To witness what I saw and to keep seeing it in my head, to being forced out the restaurant, to not be able to go in the ambulance or the hospital, Car keys, purse and my phone taken from me, forced in the back of a police car, locked in an interrogation room all night, while all this is going on and to be the last person in this world to know my man didn't make it after having the faith and confidence that he was . . . My last day with u. I told you 'I know you my husband. I know you my soulmate.' Even it was for a little bit. At least we got to experience what having a soul mate is… and for that…I am grateful."
She concluded, writing, "I will never understand a loss so close. I feel so empty. My world is dark now. My heart is broken for the kids. Cover me with strength, grace, and vision to carry on for the family. Shed light on this world in such dark times. Let your power overcome evil. Pain is real. No matter how rich u are, how famous u are, how spiritual u are. Some pain is inevitable."
