Rapper Trina, who is an icon in the Miami community especially, has suffered tragedy in her family. Her younger brother was slain today and as the questions mount as to why, the hip-hop community has gathered around the diva to send their condolences.
This morning, her brother was killed in a gunfight after a scuffle. No one has been arrested yet, but sources close to the case indicate that the two knew one another. Trina’s PR team has issued a statement via her MySpace page:
“I have some very sad news to post. Over the weekend, Trina’s little brother was shot in Miami, FL. Wilbrent Bain Jr. is also known to friends as Goonkie and is 19 years old. He is currently in critical condition at a local Miami, FL hospital. Please keep him in your prayers and send your blessings to Trina and her family! Feel free to post comments as I will be forwarding them to Trina herself.” CelebrityVIPLounge send their condolences and will update as more information regarding this incident is released.
