Beanie Sigel was forced to have one of his lungs removed after it was damaged by fragments from a bullet someone fired into his stomach in December, a new report claims. The hip-hop mogul is now in rehab. Find out all the details.

Beanie Sigel was the unfortunate victim of a drive-by shooting on Dec. 5. Sadly, the hip-hop mogul lost one of his organs because of the tragic event and now he’s spending the next 90 days in a rehab facility in order to learn how to live with one lung, a new report claims. So sad.

Beanie had no choice when it came to losing his lung, TMZ reports. Doctors couldn’t save the organ because it was damaged by fragments from the bullet that entered the rapper’s stomach a few weeks ago.

He was allegedly released from the hospital, where he’s been held since Dec. 5, and now he’s recovering in Bacharach Institute for Rehabilitation in Pomona, NJ, where he’ll spend the next 90 days learning how to live with just one lung.

Unfortunately, the shooter is still on the run.

As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, an unidentified person shot Beanie Sigel when he returned home from taking his kids to school on Dec. 5. It was a drive-by shooting, according to TMZ, and the guy standing next to the rapper was allegedly the supposed target.

Poor Beanie. We hope the authorities find who’s responsible for this heinous act.

Our thoughts go out to to Beanie Sigel, his family and his friends during this difficult time. We hope he recovers quickly and smoothly.
