One month after the untimely death of rapper PNB Rock, his girlfriend, Stephanie Sibounheuang, is opening up about the traumatic incident.
On September 12, the Philadelphia rapper was gunned down inside Roscoe’s Chicken N’ Waffles in Los Angeles. Initially, many linked PNB’s death to his exposure on social media after police claimed the suspect “came to the location after a social media posting of the artist and the woman accompanying him, posting on Instagram a picture of the meal.”
The announcement sparked outrage, as fans and friends of the rapper condemned Stephanie for sharing the post. But eventually, reports revealed that the shooter, a minor, was already in the parking lot upon the rapper’s arrival. The updated information encouraged fans to apologize to his girlfriend, while others called on certain celebrities who attacked her over the post to retract their statements and apologize.
Now, after one month of grieving, Stephanie is sharing her side of the story.
“I am 100% not ok,” she began in an Instagram post of a series of videos of PNB. “If I wasn’t spiritual, I could kill myself (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,” she said.
She went on to explain how the incident unfolded, revealing that not only did she witness the murder, but she was also locked in an interrogation room for the entire night without an update on the fate of the father of her children. As she continued, she touched on their relationship and how it had progressed.
“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 soulmate is…. And for that, I am grateful,” she said, adding, “I will never understand a loss so close. I feel so empty. My world is dark now. My heart is broken for the kids.”
As she ended her statement, she prayed for strength, grace, and a “vision to carry on for the family.”
“Some pain is inevitable,” she wrote.
