Machine Gun Kelly’s Drummer, JP ‘Rook’ Capelletty, Hospitalized After Being Run Down By A Vehicle
Machine Gun Kelly’s dummer JP ‘Rook’ Cappelletty was hospitalized after being hit by a vehicle and robbed on Tuesday.
Cappelletty was walking Tuesday evening in the Hollywood Hills when a pair of men ambushed him from a car. The drummer fought his attackers but they got away with thousands in property from Cappelletty. The Ohio native was also hit by the car, resulting in arm and foot injuries.
In an Instagram Story, Cappelletty shared a picture of himself in a hospital bed with his arm in a cast. “Don’t worry I’ll bounce back,” he wrote.
In another story, the “My Ex’s Best Friend” singer was seen visiting his bandmate in the hospital.
Cappelletty has been Kelly’s drummer for nine years.
“In high school my counselors would be on me saying I know you want to be a rock star but you need to have other choices,” Capelletty said told 13ABC in 2017. “I understood where they were coming from, but I told them I was either going to be a drummer or a bum, that was my mind set.”
“I don’t think it’s impossible for anyone to do what I am doing. It’s about getting yourself in the right place and having the right people help you with your vision. As long as you have a vision of what you want to do, you can get there,” he added.
