Khloé Kardashian has shared her sorrow at the death of upcoming rapper Chinx.

The 31-year-old was killed by a drive-by shooting in New York in the early hours of the morning, according to reports. The musician was a member of Khloé’s rumoured boyfriend French Montana’s Coke Boys, with the 30-year-old having spent time in his company in recent months. After hearing of his death, Khloé was quick to share her sadness on social media.

“We've only known each other a short time but it was the best time, full of memories that I will cherish forever! I miss you Chinxy ? #TheWolfPack #RIPChinx (sic)” she wrote on Instagram alongside a picture featuring a montage of Polaroid images of herself, Chinx and French.

The beauty wasn’t the only member of her family to offer condolences to the rapper’s loved ones and the hip hop community. Her brother Rob, 28, also shared his thoughts and lamented the passing of a life cut short prematurely.

“Rest in peace Chinx ,,,, gone way too soon (sic)" he wrote on Twitter before adding, “Another brother gone without reaching his full potential :(."

Details of what happened are still emerging but TMZ reports that Chinx was found in a car with a passenger in Queens, New York at 4am having been shot multiple times in the torso. His male companion was also shot and is reportedly in a critical condition in hospital.

Chinx’s management team confirmed the sad news on Instagram on Sunday.

“It is with a heavy heart that The Legion Media Group and 4 Kings Management announce the passing of Lionel 'Chinx' Pickens this morning. He was 31 (sic)” they wrote, while his publicist Chanel Rae added: "Chinx was one of the most talented, professional and determined rappers this industry had to offer. Furthermore, he was a friend."
