PnB Rock’s girlfriend breaks silence about his murder, says rapper ‘saved my life’


The devastated girlfriend of late rapper PnB Rock broke her silence Thursday following his horrific murder that took place in front of her.

Stephanie Sibounheuang was having lunch with the Philadelphia native, whose real name is Rakim Hasheem Allen, when a robber shot him at Roscoe’s Chicken and Waffles in Los Angeles on Sept. 12.

The “Selfish” hitmaker, 30, was rushed to a nearby hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.

Speaking out about the harrowing ordeal, Sibounheuang — who shared 2-year-old daughter Xuri with PnB Rock — said she’s “100% not ok” a month later.

“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,” she wrote alongside a video comprised of clips of the pair.

“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 continued.

Moments before the shooting, Sibounheuang shared a picture of the pair’s lunch on her Instagram story and tagged the location of the eatery. She deleted the post soon after.

Three people — a 17-year-old, his father, Freddie Lee Trone, 40, and Shauntel Trone, 32 — were arrested over the killing. Shauntel was busted for accessory to murder, according to the LAPD.

The song soared to the top of the charts in the days following his death, becoming the most streamed song in the US on Apple Music on Sept 15.
