Rae Sremmurd’s stepfather, Floyd Sullivan, was fatally shot on Monday evening.
On Tuesday night (Jan. 7), the 19-year-old was released from a psychological care facility, arrested and transported to the Lee County Sheriff’s Department. No other suspects have been identified as of this report.
After the news broke of Floyd Sullivan’s death, Rae Sremmurd’s publicist released a statement requesting for the family to be kept in our prayers and for their privacy to be respected during this time. Slim Jxmmi has yet to publicly comment on the situation, but the other member of the hit-making duo, Swae Lee, shared some tweets that seemed to reference it. Aside from a tweet that solely consisted of broken-heart emojis, he wrote, “I pray this world let’s me keep some compassion” and “I’ve been tested my whole life”.
