PNB Rock’s Girlfriend Says He Saved Her Life, Speaks Out For The First  Time


PnB Rock’s girlfriend, Stephanie Sibounheuang, has returned to Instagram to share, for the first time, her experience on that dreadful day, one month ago, when the father of her children was murdered.

Stephanie explains that the ‘Selfish’ rapper saved her life that day by throwing her under the dining table when the shots rang out.

Steph says, “I am 100% not ok. If I wasn’t spiritual I could kill my self (but then I’ll go to hell and my man not there).” She then reveals PnB pushed her under a table while shots rang out, “I’m not supposed to be here but bc of him. I am.”

In her post, Steph shares a heartfelt moment about their last day together, saying, ‘My last day with u. I told you “I know you my husband. I know you my soulmate” Even it was for a little bit. At least we got to experience what having a soul mate is… and for that…I am grateful.”

So far, three people have been arrested and charged in connection to the Philly rappers murder. Freddie Lee Trone, his 17-year-old son and Shauntel Trone, his son’s stepmother, are currently behind bars awaiting trial.

Steph closes her post, “They say your angels come and stop by and visit you but I feel like mine is always here, it ain’t no stopping by … Pain is real. No matter how rich u are, how famous u are, how spiritual u are. Some pain is inevitable.”

We are sending her all of our prayers and condolences.
