What A Mess!
“Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta” star Benzino was shot by his nephew Gai Scott Saturday afternoon while driving in his mother’s funeral procession. The D.A. says Benzino and Gai were in different cars … but when the two were side-by-side at some point, his nephew allegedly fired shots. Gai was charged with assault with intent to murder.
Zino says he is ok and “… more embarrassed than anything else … “Because me being a public figure and having people see that me and my family are going through that. I didn’t appreciate that.”
Benzino went on to state that money issues might have been involved. “My mother owned a house that I gave her half the money for. I gave her $15,000 to go half on the house with my sister Maureen. From information that I received, my nephew Gai all of a sudden was on a loan,” Benzino says. “So Gai’s name and Maureen’s name is on the loan. They took out over $300,000 of loans on the house because the house shot up to maybe $600,000. From my understanding, my mother didn’t receive a penny.”
