AceShowbiz - Yo Gotti and Blac Youngsta are safe, despite reports of possible retaliation in the wake of Young Dolph's death. After the Chicago-born star was shot and killed on Wednesday, November 17, there have been speculations that the two Memphis natives were targeted.
Following Dolph's passing, pictures surfaced of police car being stationed outside Prive restaurant, which is owned by Gotti, in Memphis. Officers were seen standing guard outside the restaurant, which is located about 10 miles from where Dolph was killed.
While it was unclear if there was an actual threat made against the restaurant or if police are just being proactive in preventing any possible payback, there was also report that Youngsta's grandmother's home was shot at.
However, the reports have been debunked by reporters from local news station Action News 5. "Prive's in Memphis has NOT been shot up per @MEM_PoliceDept," Hannah Wallsmith tweeted. Her colleague Joyce Peterson added, "Granny is safe too, per Memphis Police." Hannah then confirmed it as she posted, "Granny's house not shot up either," citing the same source.
Gotti and Dolph had a history of beefing online, with the latter tweeting in 2016, "Bra went from bein my #1 fan and wanting to sign me to bein my BIGGEST HATER." He also referred to Gotti as "lame" multiple times during an interview with "The Breakfast Club".
Youngsta, meanwhile, is signed to Gotti's label Collective Music Group.
Dolph, whose real name was Adolph Robert Thornton, Jr., was gunned down in Memphis, Tennessee on Wednesday while he was shopping inside a cookie store which he frequented. He was reportedly purchasing items for his mother.
His attorney and friend Scott Hall told TMZ the "RNB" spitter was in town for his annual Thanksgiving giveaway, which was scheduled in his old neighborhood on Wednesday afternoon. He planned to head to the event right after visiting the cookie store.
