Stephanie Sibounheuang took to IG Live on Saturday (January 14) to thank those who have supported her budding business, Angel Energy, as she navigates life without her partner with whom she shared a two-year-old daugther, Xuri.
Saying that she had been called by God to make the vulnerable post, Sibounheuang admitted that, while she has a few side businesses, PnB Rock was the primary breadwinner in their relationship.
“This is basically a video of gratitude,” she started. “And I just want to thank everybody who been supporting me. It really means so much to me. And God wanted to me tell y’all that, since Rock been gone, I haven’t had no help.”
She continued: “And let’s be real: you know, he took care of me and my whole family. I always had my own little motion. You know I got my little Airbnb’s and little stuff like that, but let’s be real, it’s not at an abundance. It’s been really tough without no help, without my protector and my provider here. But I’m just letting God use me, I’m just trusting God’s plan.”
During the at-times-emotional 15-minute video, which she later posted to her main Instagram feed, Stephanie Sibounheuang opened up about the spiritual journey she’s been on as of late, revealing that she’s been able to communicate with PnB Rock through prayer.
She added that through the support of her followers, she has been able to continue taking care of her family, as she and her partner had done before his death in September of last year.

Around the 7:40 mark, the entrepreneur began reading some of the comments being made in the live chat, and seemingly replied to a viewer asking about what plans Rock had made for his family, which also includes a 9-year-old daughter from a previous relationship.
“No, he did not have life insurance,” she revealed. “No, he did not have a will. No, we didn’t have nothing set up. We’re so young, we don’t plan on death. “I don’t even get death benefits, I don’t get nothing, and I’m not gonna ask nobody for nothing. I have that personality and I’m working on that.”
“I’m trying to, you know, empty myself of my ego and my pride because I’m not gonna ask nobody for nothing, I don’t care.” she added. “I could be on fire and I’m not even gonna ask you to spit on me. I’m trying to stop being like that, but God, he’s been making the way, he’s been making the way. I’m so grateful, I’m so grateful for y’all.”
Following PnB Rock’s death, Sibounheuang wrote a heartfelt message on Instagram expressing her grief, while also revealing the rapper courageously saved her life during the fatal robbery.
“I am 100% not ok,” she wrote. “If I wasn’t spiritual I could kill my self (but then I’ll go to hell and my man not there) My man saved my life, Throwing me under that table. I’m not supposed to be here but bc of him. I am. No one would be able to handle this. TBH, I can’t even handle this.”
She went on to detail the moments immediately following the September 12 shooting at Roscoe’s Chicken & Waffles, explaining that she was briefly detained by the police following the incident. As a result, she unable to accompany PnB Rock to the Los Angeles area hospital where he succumbed to multiple gunshot wounds.
According to the beauty influencer, PnB Rock’s death was preceded by a turning point in their relationship, which had left her hopeful for their future as a couple.
“My man had gave his self to GOD,” she added. “Did a complete 360. He was loyal. He was patient. He was teachable and a teacher. I was finally letting the past go, and letting him show up as his changed self.”
On December 8, a day before what would have been PnB Rock’s 31st birthday, Stephanie Sibounheuan paid tribute to her slain boyfriend with a new tattoo: the rapper’s first name, Rakim, written in script on her nect.
