PnB Rock's girlfriend opens up about rapper's murder: "My world is dark now"

The girlfriend of PnB Rock has shared her first statement since his death. She was with the rapper when he was shot and killed during a restaurant robbery in Los Angeles last month. Rakim Hasheem Allen was fatally shot at Roscoe’s Chicken & Waffles restaurant in South L.A. on September 1st while he and his girlfriend, Stephanie Sibounheuang, were dining.

In a post shared on her Instagram page, Sibounheuang revealed that Rakim had essentially “saved her life” by “throwing {her] under” the table. She wrote: “I’m not supposed to be here but [because] of him. I am. No one would be able to handle this. TBH, I can’t even handle this.”

She added: “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.”

Sibounheuang goes on to explain that “everything was finally perfect for our family,” when the shooting occurred. “My man had gave his self to GOD. Did a complete 360. He was loyal. He was patient. He was teachable and a teacher. I was finally letting the past go, and letting him show up as his changed sel.”

Concluding her heartfelt statement, Sibounheuang said: “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 [you] are, how famous [you] are, how spiritual [you] are. Some pain is inevitable.”

Back in September, the LAPD confirmed the arrest of three suspects in connection to Rock’s murder. A 17-year-old and their father have both been charged with first-degree murder, two counts of second-degree robbery and one count of conspiracy to commit robbery. A third suspect has been charged with accessory to murder.
