This is so sad! Tyga’s bodyguard and close friend Arlester Henderson – better known as Punch – was killed in a tragic accident in Los Angeles on Mar. 30. The rapper is ‘shocked and heartbroken’ by the devastating news. Here’s what happened.
Tyga tragically lost a close friend on Mar. 30. Arlester Henderson, or “Punch”, as Tyga called him, was Tyga’s pal and body guard, and he was lost way too soon in a freak car accident in Los Angeles. Tyga is “shocked and heartbroken” by the unexpected death of the 29-year-old. We have all the details, right here.
Our thoughts are with Tyga today, because he found out that his close friend had passed away in a freak accident. Arlester, or “Punch” as Tyga called him, got into a minor accident on the 10 freeway in Los Angeles, according to TMZ. However, the impact didn’t hurt him. He got out of the car to check on the people in the other vehicle, when he was hit by yet another passing car, and was pronounced dead at the scene.
Punch was only 29 years old when he died on Mar. 30, which is way too young. Tyga is torn up about it, Instagramming a photo hamming it up with his bud with the caption “Rip Punch🙏🏾🙏🏾 I know you looking down from a better place.” His rep also told TMZ that he is “devastated, shocked and heartbroken” by the news.
Luckily, Tyga and Kylie Jenner seem closer than ever, so he can lean on her in this difficult time. The same day as the death, he was spotted on-set for a video shoot for Kylie’s new line of lip glosses. Perhaps she brought him along so he wouldn’t be left alone during the rough time.
