New reports claim the duo survived a shooting and robbery outside a California studio. A rep for Rich the Kid revealed that he was doing okay after the incident, while one of his bodyguards was badly pistol-whipped.

Usher was also at the studio during the time of the shooting, but he was not hurt. No one was shot or taken to the hospital.

Just hours before the robbery, Rich coincidentally posted an Instagram photo of himself holding stacks of cash while standing in front of a Lamborghini.

Sheriff's deputies have briefly closed Santa Monica Boulevard at La Brea Avenue while investigating a robbery at the Gateway shopping area. He was outside the studio when it went down and multiple shots were fired.


Westlake Recording Studio has attracted major names from the music industry for decades, including Madonna, Rihanna, Justin Bieber, and Michael Jackson.

LAPD investigators are now on the hunt for the suspect or suspects, who reportedly fled the scene with a ton of cash and jewelry.

The couple split earlier this year but on Friday in Georgia it was finally rubber stamped.

When they split back last March they released a joint statement, telling fans: "After much thought and consideration we have mutually chose to separate as a couple. The enormous amount of love and respect that we have for each other will only increase as we move forward".
