Ty Dolla $ign & YG Threatened With Lawsuit Over 2015 Beating – Tha Wire
Today in Tha Wire, TMZ reports they got their hands on evidence of a lawsuit that’s pending against rapper/singer Ty Dolla $ign, and rapper/actor YG. The two are being accused of beating an Australian soccer star, Nelly Yoa, to a pulp at Eve Nightclub in Melbourne. The incident allegedly occurred back in January 2015, and ironically, the club closed the same month the following year. Anyway, according to the alleged victim, he was kicking it in VIP when the rappers came in with their entourage. Yoa claims the rap stars and their crew told everyone to get out, and supposedly started pushing people out of the room.
The Aussie baller goes on to accuse the rappers of beating him up when he refused to leave. He claims the two stars punched and kicked him in the head, and he suffered extensive injuries from the assault. Yoa claims his budding pro soccer career was sidelined, because he hasn’t been able to play. He was supposedly signing a soccer deal with the Melbourne City Football Club. HotNewHollywood reports the Yoa’s legal time fired off letters threatening a lawsuit, unless certain demands were met. Demands that I’m sure have a dollar amount tied to them.
Yoa claims he stood to make a “substantial income,” had he been able to play. Now that the rap stars spoiled his chance at a pro career, Yoa is looking to score another kind of payday to make up for his loss. Yoa’s legal camp sent the letters, which is a formality before a lawsuit is filed. So far, neither star has made a public statement on the matter. Meanwhile, TMZ coped a copy of some surveillance footage from the night Yoa claims he was beat up. Peep the video below.
Well that ain’t good. That does kinda look like Dolla…from the back. Of course, if the accuser can’t produce another frame with a view of the rapper’s face, I imagine Dolla could simply say it wasn’t him. We shall see. Of course, as more info becomes available, I will keep you in the loop. For all things entertainment, listen to Tha Wire for the daily scoop only on The People’s Station 107 Jamz.
