SKINNYFROMTHE9 RECOVERING FROM GETTING SHOT
On July 24th Skinnyfromthe9 went live on Instagram after being shot. In the live the Florida artist can be seen on the ground in severe pain while yelling “I’ve been shot”. A few hours after the live his management team posted a message to his fans. The post read “Skinny is in the hospital we don’t know what’s going, he did get shot. Pray for him, this is not a joke.”
Two days later on July 26th the artist posted again and let his followers know he had been shot in the hip as well as having a fractured leg.

Then on July 27th he posted his first day of physical therapy. His video shows him trying to move his legs while sitting and then shows the swelling in his knee.
