Solange Knowles was supposed to be having a good time DJing at Coachella tonight, but instead she’s in New Orleans after hearing some horrible news.
The singer is currently dealing with the alleged attempted murder of her good friend and business partner, Armina Mussa.
On Wednesday evening, Armina, who owns a boutique shop in New Orleans with Solo and also serves as Project Director for Solange’s label, got into a scuffle with Arronesia Christophe, that ended up with the 24-year-old suffering multiple wounds after Arronesia stabbed her 10 times.
According to NOLA:
Records show Christophe told Dejernette that she had been attacked by Mussa and was acting in self-defense when she stabbed the woman.
Christophe claimed that she had arrived at a high school friend’s home about 6:45 p.m. when Mussa, who Christophe said was her friend’s ex-girlfriend, came out of the house and began yelling at her to leave, the documents show. Records show Mussa lives at the Derbigny Street home.
Christophe reportedly said, “We’re just friends, why do I have to leave?” Records show Christophe said she then grabbed a small folding knife from the center console of her car and told Mussa to “get back,” and to “please back away,” but claimed Mussa continued to yell at her.
Mussa then began punching Christophe, the arrested woman told police. Christophe said she was being pulled by her hair to the ground when she began swinging her knife at Mussa, who she claims continued to punch her.
“(Christophe) stated she did not think she had stabbed the victim due to the harder thrown punches that she received from the victim,” Dejernette wrote in her report.
Christophe said she finally stopped swinging the knife when Mussa stepped back and said, “you stabbed me,” records show.
Armina suffered 10 stab wounds, including one potential life-threatening stab wound to the neck.
Arronesia stayed on the scene until cops arrived and was charged with aggravated battery before the charges were upgraded this morning to attempted second-degree murder due to Armina’s injuries.
Solange was in California and prepping for her Coachella sets when the incident occurred, but cancelled everything to be by her friend’s side as she fights for her life.
Solange was also spotted at Arronesia’s hearing this afternoon where a judge ordered the suspect to be held on $50,000 bail. (Seems pretty low for stabbing someone 10 times).
Wishing a speedy recovery for Armenia.
