Reality star Benzino is opening up for the first time since being shot three times by his nephew, Gai Scott, during his mother’s funeral service over the weekend.
While recovering from the bullet wounds in an Atlanta hospital, the “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” star chatted with WXIA to shed some light on the real motive behind the shooting that took place in Massachusetts.
Benzino says he felt like his sister and nephew were taking advantage of his late mother in the past, adding, “I’ve spoke up about it years ago.” He went on to say, “there had been loans taken out on her house, which I wasn’t even aware of.”
As of right now, Gai has been charged with assault with intent to murder and was arraigned today in the Plymouth District Court.
He also did another radio interview with NE. Watch the interview below:
