Multiple entourage members were also attacked, and at least one bodyguard was badly pistol whipped.

The three suspects made off with cash and jewelry, and as they fled, one of the suspects reportedly opened fire and shot as many as ten shots behind him in the direction of the studio.

Witnesses told TMZ that as many as 10 shots were fired outside the Westlake Recording Studio.

Prior to the robbery, Rich the Kid shared a photo of himself holding a stack of cash, standing next to a Lamborghini. Usher was also in the studio, but came out unharmed.

In June of 2018, the Atlanta-bred rapper was hospitalized after he was robbed in Tori Brixx's Los Angeles house.

Authorities from the L.A. County Sheriff's Department surrounded the scene and nearby blocks searching for the culprit this afternoon while gathering evidence and eyewitness statements. They were reportedly carrying guns.

Two masked men reportedly entered the resident and demanded cash and jewelry from Rich and Tori Brixx, who is now pregnant with his child.

'For motivational purposes only, ' Rich wrote in the caption.

The likes of Justin Bieber, Michael Jackson, Rihanna, Shakira, Madonna, Justin Timberlake and Quincy Jones have all recorded at Westlake in recent years.
