Pretty Ricky’s Baby Blue Whoaaaa was reportedly shot during an attempted armed robbery in Miami.
The singer, born Diamond Smith, is currently in critical condition, according to his team, who shared the news with Hollywood Unlocked on Wednesday morning (April 21). Baby Blue was allegedly attacked by two armed robbers at SpareZ Bowling, where he was celebrating the release of his new single “Jerry Rice.” He was rushed to a local hospital where he is “fighting for his life.”
In graphic video from the aftermath of the shooting, the “Love & Hip Hop: Miami” star can be seen laid out on the floor while those around him panic and try to administer aid. Someone calls for help while another person turns him on his side and tries to stop the bleeding.
Fans took to social media to offer prayers and his Instagram bio has been updated with the hashtag #PrayforBabyBlue.
Back in October, Smith was arrested and charged with wire fraud, bank fraud, and conspiracy to commit wire fraud and bank fraud for his alleged involvement in a $24 million coronavirus relief fraud scheme.
