PnB Rock’s girlfriend has broken her silence, a month after the Philadelphia rapper was fatally shot inside a Roscoe’s House of Chicken & Waffles in south Los Angeles.
The late rapper, whose real name was Rakim Hasheem Allen, was having lunch with girlfriend Stephanie Sibounheuang, when a suspect walked up to the couple, drew a handgun, demanded jewelry, and fatally shot the rapper.
Sibounheuang, who shares a 2-year-old daughter with Rock, posted a message on Instagram Thursday saying she’s “100% not ok.”
“My man saved my life, throwing me under that table. I’m not supposed to be here but bc of him, I am,” she captioned a video montage of the later rapper, her daughter and herself.

“To witness what I saw and to keep seeing it in my head, to being forced out the restaurant, to not be able to go in the ambulance or the hospital, car keys, purse and my phone taken from me, forced in the back of a police car, locked in an interrogation room all night, while all this is going on and to be the last person in this world to know my man didn’t make it, after having the faith and confidence that he was,” she added in the post.
Sibounheuang concluded: “I will never understand a loss so close. I feel so empty. My world is dark now. My heart is broken for the kids. Cover me with strength, grace, and vision to carry on for the family. Shed light on this world in such dark times. Let your power overcome evil. Pain is real. No matter how rich u are, how famous u are, how spiritual u are. Some pain is inevitable.”
As previously reported, Sibounheuang was initially criticized for posting a location-tagged photo of her meal on Instagram and tagging Rock in a since-deleted post the day of his murder.
However, several media outlets later quoted police sources as saying the suspects saw them arrive at the restaurant.
A 17-year-old boy, his a 38-year-old stepmother Shauntel Trone, and the teen’s 40-year-old father Freddie Lee Trone have been arrested in connection with the killing.
