T.I. bodyguard stabbed at Canadian show

One of rapper T.I.'s bodyguards is recovering after he was reportedly stabbed in the leg during a fight at a show in New Brunswick, Canada on Monday night (30Jan17).

Sources tell TMZ the unnamed 23-year-old was stabbed at least three times at a club in Moncton, while overseeing a merchandise station.

He was hospitalized with minor injuries and released hours later.

T.I. has been quizzed by police, according to the news outlet.

The stabbing incident is the latest drama to go down at a T.I. gig - the rapper was forced to cancel an appearance at Irving Plaza in New York last year (16) after a fatal shoot-out backstage.

Hip hop star Troy Ave's minder, Ronald McPhatter, was killed and Troy and two others were injured.

The rapper, real name Roland Collins, has pleaded not guilty to attempted murder and other charges for firing back at podcast celebrity Daryl Campbell after he was hit during the green room shoot-out, which took place before T.I. had arrived at the venue.

Campbell, aka Taxstone, was charged with weapon possession on 17 January (17) after prosecutors found his DNA on the only gun used. He has not been charged with McPhatter's murder.
