Rapper Rick Ross Sued Over Brawl At 2011 Birthday Party In New York
Umbrella Lounge filed a lawsuit against Rick Ross earlier this month, claiming the rap star and his entourage were involved in an altercation during a January 28 birthday celebration.
The lawsuit claims that the fight spilled outside, and resulted in the injury of two men who required serious medical attention for their wounds.
One of the victims required 40 stitches, while another suffered lacerations and permanent scarring.
The victims originally sued Umbrella Lounge, who in turn, have filed a lawsuit against Rick Ross.
Umbrella Lounge claims they provided enough security, but the rap star’s entourage continued to fight outside, despite security’s efforts to quell the violence.
The lawsuit accuses Rick Ross of acting in a reckless and negligent manner, since he disobeyed the orders given by Umbrella Lounge’s security to halt the violence, which resulted in the injuries of the patrons.
