Rapper Tyga is mourning the tragic death of his bodyguard, Arlester “Punch” Henderson, who was killed in a traffic accident on Wednesday.
Henderson was driving on the Santa Monica Freeway just before 6 a.m. when he collided with another vehicle. After he got out to check on the other driver, he was struck by an oncoming Mercedes Benz C230, according to a police report obtained by Page Six.
The 29-year-old was pronounced dead at the scene.
A rep told gossip tabloid TMZ the rapper is “devastated, shocked and heartbroken" by the untimely death of his friend.
“RIP Punch,” Tyga wrote in a tribute to Henderson on Instagram.com. “I know you looking down from a better place.”
