During the weekend, Benzino returned to Boston and prepared himself to say his final goodbyes to his mother. This mission was accomplished, but Benzino also ended up having his own brush with death. Later news reports would reveal Benzino was put in this position by his own nephew.
The news was shocking, but family feuds erupting over the past few years comes as no surprise. It turned out, Benzino was on the fence about attending his mother’s funeral due to a family feud he was going through. So, when he went, he got to the funeral, the feud lived on.
Benzino told the Boston Globe about the family feud and when his nephew, Gai Scott, was arrested, he discussed the shooting. Gai Scott pleaded Not Guilty in this shooting case and he also said the family feud was over the care of his grandmother, Benzino’s mother. The younger Scott claims that when the dust settles, the world will know it’s self-defense.
