The rapper was driving a Rolls-Royce Phantom registered to Prince Andrew Lee of Korea when he was shot and robbed of his Rolex and three metal chains
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Atlanta rapper J Money was reportedly robbed of his jewelry and shot dead while riding in a Rolls-Royce owned by a member of the Korean royal family. The incident happened around 4:20 p.m. on Nov. 18 in front of the opulent Curve apartment building in Los Angeles, Fox News reported. Los Angeles Police Department officials said J Money was in the car parked in front of the Curve apartment building on the corner of Wilshire and Hoover, on the edge of the Westlake and Koreatown neighborhoods of Los Angeles.
According to eyewitnesses, the victim appeared to be injured but was able to walk with the help of others, while police and paramedics arrived at the scene to help. The rapper was conscious and breathing but was later rushed to the hospital in critical condition, according to the LAPD.
According to AceShowbiz, the robbers took away three metal chains and J Money’s Rolex watch. No arrests were made because the perpetrators fled the premises after the robbery and shooting before the police arrived. Although an investigation has been launched, no one has been taken into custody.
An investigation has since revealed that Rolls-Royce was not actually owned by J Money. It is believed that Andrew Lee, the car’s registered owner, provided him with a rental vehicle. In addition to being an entrepreneur, Lee is also the crown prince of Korea. He is the creator of VPN security service London Trust Media. In addition, Lee is recognized as the heir to the Joseon Dynasty, which ruled Korea from 1392 to 1897. Whether he was the target or in the car when the robbery took place is still unknown. In 2018, Lee was recognized as a relative by HRH King Yi Seok of Korea, who also named him the crown prince of the family. Despite having no real authority, the Korean royal family enjoys “privilege and recognition” both in the nation and in the media.
J Money formerly known as J Futuristic has collaborated with many artists including Zaytoven, Migos and Soulja Boy. He also recently recovered from cancer. He posted on his Instagram account thanking fans for their support and love while he battled cancer. He’s also had several legal battles, including a child molestation charge in 2010.
