According to Fort Lauderdale police, Ross and fashion designer Shateria L. Moragne-el, claimed hearing multiple shots fired in their direction around 5 a.m., Monday morning. Ross lost control of his silver Rolls Royce crashing into an apartment building.
Officers at the scene did not find any bullet strikes on the Rolls, and neither party was injured in the crash.
Authorities said that an unknown suspect fled before police arrived. TV news footage confirmed a bullet hole in the window of a nearby restaurant.
Ross has had a number of problems leading up to the possible gunfire.
In December Ross canceled his remaining tour. Several reasons were cited as to the cause of the cancelation, including lack of organization on the part of the promoter, as well as rumors of death threats from Gangster Disciples, a street gang that originated from the Chicago area.
The MMG tour included Meek Mills, Wale, and more recently Machine Gun Kelly. The tour was originally scheduled for 23 days, but was extended to Dec. 16.
The cancelations started with two shows in North Carolina, where the death threats were rumored. Soon after that, the remainder of the shows were canceled.
The Gangster Disciples posted their threats on YouTube back in November, warning Ross and everyone who was signed with Mayback Music Group that they were coming after them. Since then a number of videos have surfaced on YouTube threatening the singer.
