Yung Berg Robbed and Pistol-Whipped in LA
Chicago-bred rapper Yung Berg, real name Christian Ward, was reportedly the victim of a brutal robbery that took place in Los Angeles last weekend. According to TMZ, Berg was chilling at a late night house party when four suspects entered around 2AM with an arsenal of firearms. Law enforcement is claiming that the criminals made off with somewhere around $10,000 in cash and jewelry from eight partygoers.
That’s a bad enough story, but things actually get worse. The LAPD also revealed that Yung Berg was one of two victims of a pistol-whipping in the process. Thus far, the rapper has yet to respond to the story and one of his reps is a little peeved at the whole thing, saying that Berg “has been in Vegas” and that he doesn’t know anything about the incident.
Police are officially seeking a black male, a woman wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt and another woman who wore a red sweatshirt. Law enforcement was only alerted because a woman at the house was able to escape during the resulting confusion and alert the police.
The media is still waiting for an official statement from Yung Berg on the incident.
