Being under house arrest is not preventing NBA YoungBoy from getting into more legal trouble. According to a report from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the rapper is being sued over an incident at a 2019 concert. According to the lawsuit, the incident occurred while YoungBoy performed at The Ambassador on January 26, 2019. NBA YoungBoy has been serving a house arrest in Utah since October 2021.
Cayden Rutherford, the plaintiff in the case, claims that she suffered severe and life-changing injuries after being thrown from the stage at the concert. Rutherford alleges that she climbed on stage before being thrown off by an unspecified member of staff. She also alleged that she suffered multiple injuries after striking the venue’s concrete floor, as well as a broken cable. Rutherford claims she suffered a concussion, as well as injuries to her neck, back, and ankle. Furthermore, Rutherford claims that the physical and mental trauma of the incident still affects her today.
Lawsuit Points To History Of Stage Ejections
The lawsuit is largely one of negligence. As noted in the filed court documents, YoungBoy’s shows have something of a history of the rapper fighting fans and having them thrown off stage. According to the lawsuit, there were three incidents in Minnesota, Virginia, and South Carolina where a fan was physically thrown from the stage. All three incidents occurred prior to the 2019 show in St. Louis. As a result of this, Rutherford alleges that there should have been better supervision at the 2019 concert. The Ambassador, concert promoter Major Entertainment LLC and security company Elite Security, Protection & Services LLC are also named as defendants.
Rutherford is seeking undisclosed monetary damages from the four defendants. However, her attorney Brad Elkin declined to provide further comment to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Furthermore, attorneys for the defendants did not respond to requests for comment form the outlet. This is a developing story and we’ll have any updates here at HotNewHipHop.
