Benny The Butcher is reportedly facing grand theft allegations after he was recently accused of stealing a $10,000 pair of earrings from a woman in a hotel.
On Saturday, Feb. 19, TMZ reported that rapper Griselda was suspected in a robbery case that allegedly took place at the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif., a few weeks ago. A woman allegedly told law enforcement that she shared a room with the Burden of proof MC. However, when she woke up, she claimed that the Buffalo, NY rhyme was missing and her earrings were nowhere to be found. The woman claims that she and Benny were the only people in the room. She even claims she called the rapper and he admitted to slipping the earrings and gave her his word that he would return them later. She alleges the earrings were not returned and the rapper now claims they were lost.
XXL contacted Benny’s team and the Beverly Hills Police Department for comment.
Benny encountered his own problems just over a year ago, when he was shot dead while sitting in a Walmart parking lot in Houston after two masked gunmen stole jewelry from the MC and his passenger. Benny was shot in the leg and taken to a local hospital. He was released shortly thereafter.
After starting the projects Plugs I met 2, Pyrex Picasso and Trust the Sopranos with 38 Spesh in 2021, Benny The Butcher is currently preparing his new album Tana talk 4which is slated for release on March 11. He recently released the first single “Johnny P’s Caddy” featuring J. Cole.
