Jimmy Henchmen's Son Assaulted, Sources Claim 50 Cent, Tony Yayo Responsible
Sources close to Rosemond's Czar Entertainment said the assault occured on Tuesday (Mar. 20), as Rosemond's 14-year-old son was heading to his internship at his father's record label/management firm, located at 11 W. 25th Street.
According to sources, 50 Cent and Tony Yayo were leaving the offices of Violator Management, which is located on 36 W. 25th Street, when they saw the boy walking down the street, wearing a Czar Entertainment T-shirt.
Tony Yayo and several associates allegedly approached the teen and confronted him, not knowing he was Rosemond's son.
"As 50 was getting into his SUV, he hand signaled over to Yayo and his entourage to approach and harass the boy," a source said. "After being interrogated for several minutes as to why he was wearing a Czar Entertainment sweatshirt, Yayo pushed the boy up against the wall."
Yayo allegedly backhanded the boy and shouted several explicatives directed toward Czar Entertainment.
According to sources, criminal charges may be filed against 50 Cent, born Curtis Jackson and Tony Yayo, born Marvin Bernard.
Tony Yayo is managed by Violator Artist Management, which also handles the careers of 50 Cent, Busta Rhymes, Young Buck, Lloyd Banks and other G-Unit artists.
According to sources, Rosemond and Yayo had an earlier exchange of words in front of The Apollo during Justo's 10th Annual Mixtape Awards in Dec. 2006.
A source close to Violator Management denied that 50 Cent was involved in the incident and noted that Chris Lighty's brother was also the victim of a recent attack, which the source blamed on individuals associated with Rosemond.
"50 wasn't there," a source close to Violator said. "They should do whatever. But we will charge Jimmy Henchmen sent someone, who got in a fight with Chris' [Lighty's] brother. 50 and Chris weren't even in the building when the incident happened."
Czar Entertainment manages the career of Too $hort, Ali & Gipp, Trillville and former G-Unit member The Game, who was engaged in a now infamous feud with 50 Cent and his entire G-Unit crew.
