According to law enforcement sources, Rich the Kid was arrested for possession of a concealed weapon at Los Angeles International Airport on Monday.
TMZ reports that the rapper was going through security at LAX around 1 p.m. when a loaded gun was discovered inside his carry-on bag. He was released after being booked for carrying a loaded weapon in public.
The arrest follows a rough year for the rapper, who got sued by his management company, a jewelry store, and Fashion Nova. 2019 saw Rich the Kid as the target of a shooting at a West Hollywood studio. In 2018, he was hospitalized for injuries sustained during an armed home invasion that occurred at Tori Brixx’s Los Angeles Home.
Hopefully, things get better for Rich the Kid here on out.
