Girlfriend of rapper killed on Las Vegas Strip defends his reputation
Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) — Asmayti “May” Hagos, the 22-year-old girlfriend of the aspiring rapper Kenneth Cherry Jr., called a press conference today at the Greco Law Group office in downtown Las Vegas to talk about her relationship with Cherry and his past.
However, Hagos would not say how Cherry afforded his Maserati and his living expenses. She would only say that he was an aspiring rapper who promoted his shows in Las Vegas.
Hagos admitted that she has a criminal record for prostitution but said that Cherry is actually the one that helped her get away from that lifestyle and turn her life around.
LAS VEGAS — A 22-year-old Miami woman with a history of prostitution arrests was identified Tuesday as a person of interest in a Las Vegas Strip shooting that triggered a spectacular fiery crash and left three people dead, including an aspiring rapper from Oakland.
Police said Tineesha Lashun Howard was in a black SUV with Ammar Harris last week when he fired shots into a Maserati sports car at a self-promoted rapper who investigators say argued with Harris minutes earlier in the valet area of a glassy Strip resort.
Maserati driver Kenneth Wayne Cherry Jr., 27, was mortally wounded before the sports car accelerated and slammed into a taxi that burst into flames — killing the cab driver and his passenger, a businesswoman from Washington state.
