Blueface Stabbed In Gym Altercation

The cause for the altercation is currently unknown, but Blueface claims the man came out of nowhere like the "boogieman." While the rapper has been showcasing his boxing endeavors on recent episodes of Crazy In Love, fans were under the impression that he and Chrisean Rock were no longer on good terms. Recently, however, a clip of the duo getting up close and personal at the gym began to circulate. It's left supporters confused, as he had previously claimed he was more interested in the mother of his first two children, Jaidyn Alexis. This is nothing new for the on-and-off again couple, who always seem to be on rocky terms.

In the most recent episode of the duo's reality series, Blueface sparred with former pro boxer Floyd Mayweather. As Chrisean cheered the father of her child on, however, he gave her some advice. “Stop, stop, leave him alone,” he told the 23-year-old. “Cheering don’t win fights, fighting do.” Stay tuned to HNHH for more updates on Blueface.
