Asian Doll opens up about losing King Von
She and Von had split just a few days before he was killed.
Asian Doll is opening up about losing her “soulmate,” King Von.
The Welcome to O’Block emcee was fatally shot outside of an Atlanta nightclub on Nov. 6 after getting into a physical altercation with Quando Rondo and his crew. Asian, who dated the late rapper on and off, is still dealing with the aftermath of his untimely death.
During an interview on Taraji P. Henson’s “Peace of Mind” Facebook show, she opened up about the moment she found out about his death. “Actually when he had passed away, when they said he was in critical condition, he had already passed away,” she said.
The Dallas native continued, “Somebody from the hospital got in contact with me — one of the nurse’s daughters — and she was just was crying on the phone. She was like, ‘Asian I’m so sorry…my grandma works at the hospital. He passed away, they put an X on his bag.’ So, once they said he was dead on social media, I already knew.”
Once she heard the news and saw it confirmed on the news, she said her “whole world just crashed.” She also revealed that she and Von split just a few days before he was killed and she was “real hard on him” at the time and not speaking to him.
The “Nunnadet Shit” rapper described Von as a very loving person and revealed that he had just lost his grandmother to COVID-19 earlier that year. She also gave advice to rappers who were tuned into the show. “You can chase this life as long as you want, but this cycle, it just keeps getting repeated and repeated and repeated to the point it’s like, how many more rappers or music influencers are we going to lose until people just really wake up?” she asked.
