After hours of disbelief it has been confirmed that Love and Hip Hop star and former owner of "The Source" magazine Raymond "Benzino" Scott, is in stable condition after being shot three times by his nephew 36 year old Gai Scott.

During his mother's funeral procession yesterday afternoon; Benzino Scott was shot several times in the arm and although not fatal it's sure to have a huge impact on the dynamic of his family being that it was his nephew that shot him.

While "Zino" was rushed to South Shore hospital his nephew Gai Scott was arrested and charged with assault with intent to murder.

According to WCVB Boston, Gai and Benzino were riding in separate cars during the procession when shots were fired from one car to the next. Sources say both the limo and hearse were splattered and stained with blood when they arrived to the church. The funeral was delayed for a short while but family members eventually proceeded as planned.

Plymouth county district attorney Timothy J. Cruz says "There have been growing family tensions between Raymond Scott and Gai Scott".

We'll all be standing by waiting for more details as the days progress... and what about Love and Hip Hop next season, do you think we'll see this or parts of this situation on camera, co-star Stevie J. was present at the hospital. I guess we'll have to wait and see.

Till next time...

Read. Think. Be Happy.
