AceShowbiz - Members of Juice WRLD's entourage had a brush with the law, shortly before the rapper's passing. The Post reports that two security guards, who were with the rapper when he was suffering a seizure at a private hangar at Chicago's Midway International Airport, were arrested on gun charges.
The site reports that the two security guards were found with weapons on them at the airport. They had a conceal and carry permit valid in the state of Illinois, but they were not allowed to bring the weapons into an airport.
Chicago Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi confirms that the two security guards were arrested and charged with misdemeanor gun violations. No other members of Juice's entourage were found with illegal stuff, and they were all reported "very cooperative" during security check at the airport.
Juice suffered a seizure after arriving at Chicago's Midway airport on early Sunday morning. He was allegedly bleeding from his mouth when paramedics got on scene. He was still conscious when he was rushed to hospital by Chicago Fire, but later pronounced dead at the hospital.
Footage taken when the "Armed and Dangerous" spitter was in a private plane during the flight from Los Angeles to Chicago showed him fully conscious and in good spirits while joking around with a friend, playfully throwing water on his friend who was fast asleep. A second video shows the crew landing at Chicago's Midway airport. The 21-year-old rapper was hanging with one of his friends in the back as they looked at something together, possibly a phone.
His death is mourned by his fans and fellow celebrities, including rapper Famous Dex who recalled his own scary seizure in an Instagram Live video. "I was dehydrated, I wasn't sleeping," he explained what caused his recent health emergency.
Lamenting the untimely passing of fellow rappers Juice and Mac Miller, he emotionally told his followers, "I wanna cry." He went on admitting that he's "not perfect," but promised, "I'm gonna take care of myself."
Meanwhile, Juice's record label Interscope Geffen A&M Records said in a statement about the late star, "Juice made a profound impact on the world in such a short period of time. He was a gentle soul, whose creativity knew no bounds, an exceptional human being and artist who loved and cared for his fans above everything else. To lose someone so kind and so close to our hearts is devastating. Our thoughts are with Juice's family and friends, everyone at his label Grade A, and his millions of fans around the world."
