Mere minutes after the Red Carpet premiere of Christina Aguilera movie Burlesque, publicist Ronni Chasen was shot dead on Sunset Boulevard, in Los Angeles, USA.
The 64 year old publicist died after ‘multiple shots’ were fired into her Mercedes motor car as she drove past the Beverley Hills hotel.
Her vehicle was discovered by police crashed into a lamppost following the incident.
Songwriter, Diane Warren, who was Chasen’s celebrity client, had earlier attended the film premiere and after party with the publicist. She said “I am devastated beyond belief… I can’t believe this. I can’t believe this.”
It is as yet unclear whether the attack was premeditated, though though Warren has said “they didn’t steal anything, her purse was still there” while local police told how their investigation was still “wide open”.
