A representative for Soulja Boy has confirmed reports the rapper was the victim of assault earlier this week (begs29Dec08).
Unconfirmed reports alleged the star - real name DeAndre Ramone Way - and several of his friends were robbed at gunpoint after six men invaded his Georgia home on Tuesday (30Dec08).
Speculation heightened on Wednesday (31Dec08) after two masked men posted a video, in which they took responsibility for the crime, online. They also boasted of stalking the star at a release party for his new album iSouljaBoyTellem before following him home.
In the two-minute video, the duo blasted reports the hip-hop star was held-up by six attackers, armed with pistols and AK-47s, claiming they burgled the star with a single weapon between them.
A spokesperson for Soulja Boy has now confirmed that "a serious situation" did occur.
The representative refused to provide further details.
