Rap star and exotic-car enthusiast, Rick Ross, had a double-close call on Monday morning, escaping harm in what appears to be an attempted drive-by shooting.

According to Fort Lauderdale Police, Ross was driving his 2011 Rolls-Royce Ghost (pictured) with his girlfriend, Shateria Moragne-el, as a passenger at 5:00 AM on Monday. An unnamed gunman in another vehicle opened fire on Ross' car, causing the rapper to turn a corner, lose control of the vehicle and eventually crash into the wall of an apartment complex. Neither Ross nor Moragne-el was injured, despite reports that "dozens" of ammo casings were found at the crime scene.

Ross had been out celebrating his birthday on Sunday night; at nearby restaurant Floridian and a club called LIV in Miami Beach. Reports indicate that the restaurant was also the target of gunfire – some 15 shots that "sounded like they came from a high-powered rifle."

      "Rick Ross crashes Rolls-Royce in drive-by attempt" - With the title worded that way, it implies that Rick Ross attempted a drive-by shooting.

      I think the hit was sponsored by Daimler cuz he started Maybach Music Group but was driving a Rolls.

      One time I had some undercooked beef at the cafeteria; had to book it directly to the shateria.

      people are crazy really trying to take someones life for no reason, But why was he driving around ft lauderdale at 5am thats a death wish. I live in florida and i would never do that. Especially if i was a very known celebrity driving $300,000 car.

      Headline fail, Autoblog. The phrasing implies that someone in Ross's car was the one doing the shooting.

      Maybe he should buy a armored car.

      Maybe they were shooting at someone else, and Ricky Ross just got scared and crashed his car? I mean- this is Florida. Random gunshots are as normal as the weather.

      It's not a stereotype if it's always true.
