Zoey Dollaz was allegedly shot en route to a strip club after he attended Teyana Taylor’s 30th birthday celebration in Miami Beach.
On Thursday, a representative for the Haitian-American rapper, born Elvis Milford, confirmed to XXL magazine that Milford was shot several times Wednesday night.
Per XXL, as Milford was leaving the parking lot of 1111 Lincoln Road, where Taylor had her party, a car allegedly followed him onto a freeway.
Additionally, Milford’s rep sent a statement to Complex from Milford’s close friend, Donny “DizzyCleanface” Flores.
“He was at the Teyana Taylor private party. He left the parking lot and a car started following him and shot multiple times," Flores said. “Pray for him and his family for a speedy recovery. The ironic part is he just launched a bullet-proof car company for celebrities and high-end people. The company was starting next week.”
According to NBC 6, authorities say a silver SUV pulled alongside the Mercedes carrying Milford and someone from the SUV allegedly fired multiple gunshots. Reportedly, the rapper was struck several times in the leg.
Officials add that there was a female passenger in Milford’s car who was not injured.
After Milford’s Mercedes turned back to Miami Beach, the victims flagged down an officer on 41st Street.
"The victim stated he was coming from a private party in Miami Beach but did not have any altercations prior to the shooting incident," Florida Highway Patrol said in a statement.
Milford was then taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital for treatment. Citing local sources, The Sun-Sentinel reports Milford is in stable condition.
Early Thursday, journalist Tony Centeno tweeted about the shooting, claiming Milford was on his way to a Miami strip club called Booby Trap on the River.
Centeno adds that, per sources, Milford “is doing fine.”

Milford is signed to Future’s Freebandz label with Epic Records, and is known for songs such as “Blow a Check” and “Moonwalk.”
