Rick Ross Crashes Rolls-Royce Amid Gunfire
Rapper Rick Ross has crashed his Rolls-Royce into a building after hearing shots fired nearby, police say.
Officers in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, said Ross and his companion, fashion designer Shateria L Moragne-el, reported hearing multiple shots fired in their direction at around 5am on Monday.
The founder of the Maybach Music Group then lost control of the silver car and crashed into a block of flats.
Neither Ross nor his female passenger were injured and police said it did not appear that any bullets struck the rapper's luxury car.
Ross, whose real name is William L Roberts, turned 37 on the day of the accident.
He had been out celebrating his birthday at a local restaurant according to the Miami Herald.
The newspaper reported that one of the bullets fired at the car pierced the building's front window.
The shooting suspects fled before police arrived.
Ross has been nominated for a Grammy Award this year for his latest album God Forgives, I Don't.
