A member of Nicki Minaj’s team was killed, and another man critically injured, after a stabbing in Philadelphia in the early morning hours of Wednesday.
De’Von Pickett, 29, Minaj’s tour manager, died after being rushed to a local hospital, while Eric Parker, 27, remains in critical condition.
Minaj shared the news on Twitter, writing; ‘Two members of my team were stabbed last night in Philly. One was killed. They had only been there for two days rehearsing for the tour.’
According to NBC 10, the argument began inside Che Bar & Grill along Stenton Avenue in Philadelphia’s West Oak Lane neighborhood.
‘We believe that both of the victims, as well as the perpetrator, were all inside of this bar and that’s when an argument started,’ said Chief inspector Scott Small.
Small said that they expect Parker to survive.
And while the incident was caught on camera, the man responsible for the stabbings is still at large, having last been seen driving off in a gray Buick LeSabre.
According to witnesses, the stabbing had to do with a recently fired employee, though police have yet to verify that story.
