Bun B & Wife Recount Being Robbed In Their Home: Every Time I Looked Up, He Had The Gun At My Forehead
In late April, rapper Bun B and his wife were the victims of a horrifying robbery attempt at their Houston home which was thwarted when Bun B shot the robber. Now, the couple are recounting the details of what happened that day and more, in a new interview.
Legendary rapper Bun B and his wife Queenie Freeman, recently stopped by The Breakfast Club to talk about the recent robbery attempt at their home, Bun B shooting the suspect, DeMonte Jackson, how they’re coping in the aftermath and more. See the excerpts from the interview below.
Queenie, on how she felt in the moment during the robbery:
“In the moment, it was unreal. ‘Cause we had just made it home within 20 minutes and we were upstairs and I was putting dishes in the dishwasher. And my sink, the window is right there, and I seen the guy in the driveway, but I thought it was my neighbor two doors down. So, I continued to put the dishes in the dishwasher, Bun went to the restroom. So, I heard the doorbell, and at that time it’s usually UPS, Amazon or Fed Ex, and they only ring it one time and leave, they don’t ask for signature or nothing. So, I walked down the steps, I’m left-handed, so I moved the curtain to the left, right? So, the view that I got, I couldn’t see him because I guess he was so far towards the thing. So, me seeing that it’s nobody there as usual, ‘cause this is what we do every day, but I never answer the door.”
Queenie, discussing what happened when she came face-to-face with the robber:
“I looked up, ‘cause I’m looking down to retrieve the package, so, when I looked up he had the gun right here (points to forehead.) And so, he was backing me back, and at the same time locking the door. So, he was trying to lead me up my steps, and I was just like, ‘I can’t go up these steps ‘cause he gon’ catch Bun on the toilet and both us gon’ be dead, he’ll have to kill one of us.’ So, me thinking “fall,” I fell at the bottom of the steps and slid to the floor and balled up in a knot. And every time I looked up, he had the gun right here (points at forehead.) The barrel of the gun was so cold and he had it in a black gloved hand, He had two gloves on, one was blue and one was black. So, he kept telling me, ‘gimme what you got, gimme everything you got’ and I’m like, ‘what are you talking about?’ Because I’m in shock that this is happening to me, I’m like, ‘what are you talking about?’ [He said] ‘gimme everything you got or else imma kill you.’ In between him telling me this, he looks over and notices I have a bedroom, so when I seen him looking towards the bedroom, I start saying, ‘just take my car, just take my car.’ ‘Cause I didn’t want him to take me in that bedroom and rape me and do whatever he wanted to do.”
She continued, adding:
“I was still on the floor when he heard the footsteps, both of us heard the footsteps. Then that’s when he goes, ‘how many floors you have?’ I go, ‘four.’ He says, ‘uh, who is that up there?’ I say, ‘that’s my husband.’ He said, ‘tell your husband don’t come down.’ I could hear the footsteps that Bun is headed to get the gun, so I’m steady screaming, ‘please don’t kill me, please don’t kill me!’ He said, ‘imma kill you if he come down.’ I’m like, ‘please don’t kill me, please don’t hurt me’ ‘cause I see he’s looking at the bedroom. So, at the same time, he goes, I could hear Bun getting closer, I said ‘Bun, don’t come down.’ I noticed when I said ‘Bun’ he startled. I said, ‘Bun don’t come down the stairs’ and that’s when he asked me for the keys to my car. The entire time I was on the floor, I didn’t feel like I was gonna die, I felt protected.”
Bun B, on asking the robber to remove his mask:
“I said to him, ‘if you take this mask off and I know you, I’m killing you.’ I wanted him to get that mask off and at that point I didn’t know he was shot. After the officers came over and they looked at what I did to the car, they was like, ‘no, this dude is shot, this dude is hit, he’s gonna turn up in the hospital tonight.’ And about an hour and a half later, he did.”
Bun B, on if he knows the robber:
“I don’t know him. He’s not from Texas, he’s from Arizona apparently.”
Bun B, on how their marriage is since the incident:
“Our marriage was already strong. We just know now, that we got each other on that level because on everything else we’ve always had each other’s back. I know she’s in my corner and I know I’m her priority and vice versa. And this just really solidified that more than anything.”
