  • Nicki Minaj took to Twitter on Wednesday to report that two of her team members had been involved in a fight at a Philadelphia bar that left one of them dead, shocking fans and those who knew the victim.

    Minaj didn’t name the men but said they had flown to Philly for rehearsals. However, rapper Fabolous said the man who succumbed to his injuries was De’Von Pickett, Minaj’s tour manager, and that the other stabbing victim was Eric Parker. Parker reportedly sustained injuries to his left side and arm.

    Philadelphia police say that the alleged assailant had been arguing with the men inside the bar and pulled a knife on them once they were outside. He fled before officials arrived on the scene, however.

    “I am still in shock and don’t want to believe this. And it hurts even more knowing how good these two dudes are. How hard these guys work. And how loyal they are to whoever they are down with & each other. Please send Eric Parker your blessings & a prayer for him to pull thru. And RIP to the fallen soldier Day Day,” Fabolous said on Instagram.

    “These guys flew into Philly for my tour rehearsals 2 days ago and were both stabbed last night. #RIPDAYDAY condolences to your family. Unbelievable. Eric (on the right) is recovering. Another senseless act of violence that took the life of a great guy. So sad,” Minaj wrote on Instagram.
