RAPPER MIST has been shot in Portugal, according to reports.

The 27-year-old, whose real name is Rhys Thomas Sylvester, was attacked during a suspected burglary, Birmingham Live reported.

The intruders stole Mist’s passport, phones and jewellery after breaking into the luxury villa he was staying in in the Algarve.

The incident is understood to have occurred at approximately 10pm local time on Tuesday (August 27).

After the shooting, Mist was driven to a hospital in Faro by two friends he was holidaying with. Earlier this month he performed at festival Afro Nation, which took place in Praia de Rocha, southern Portugal.

The Mobo-winning rapper’s friends told police that the burglars had Irish accents. The attackers have not yet been identified.

It is not known how severe the star’s injuries are but his fans and famous friends have been sending their support and praying for his speedy return to full health.

Nadia Rose tweeted: “Praying for Mist.”

Yungen tweeted: “Prayers for Mist. I hope he’s good.”

“Prayers go out to my bro, Mist! Everyone please keep him in your thoughts today,” Not3es tweeted.

Some suggested that the star was already on the road to recovery.

Alhan Gençay tweeted: “Ok so I just see a video and it seems like he’s doing well. Bandage on his leg and heading back to the airport. Big up Mist a trillion times.”

Jaykae tweeted: “An extra chapter in the blockbuster movie which I’ve watched unfold called ‘Mist’.

“The guy’s a legend. He don’t know how to take an L. Watch the bounce back. My brother.”
