Machine Gun Kelly’s drummer, Rook, was reportedly robbed and then struck by a car in Hidden Hills, Calif., earlier this week.
According to TMZ, Rook was walking down a street on Tuesday night at around 8 p.m. when two men allegedly jumped out of a car to rob him. After allegedly stealing thousands of dollars worth of property, the unidentified men reportedly hit Rook with their car, injuring his foot and arm.
Law enforcement sources told TMZ that the suspects are still at large.
The musician, whose real name is JP Cappelletty, posted a photo on his Instagram Story of himself and the “Drunk Face” singer at a hospital after the attack. He appeared to be doing well, but revealed his right arm had a cast on it.
In a separate solo photo, the 27-year-old captioned it, “Don’t worry I’ll bounce back.”
Rook has been rocking out alongside MGK, 30, for nearly 10 years. The drummer previously shared that he submitted videos to the singer while still in high school, and got the call to be a “rock star” while in his class one day his senior year.
“I don’t think it’s impossible for anyone to do what I am doing,” he told a local ABC News outlet in 2017. “It’s about getting yourself in the right place and having the right people to help you with your vision. As long as you have a vision of what you want to do, you can get there.”
The musician added of returning to Ohio after touring, “I like to come home because out in places like Los Angeles it is not always sunshine and rainbows. I come home for a reality check, my time here helps me bring myself back down to earth.”
A rep for MGK did not immediately return our request for comment.
