Alleged YG & Ty Dolla $ign Assault Victim Wants Apology From The Artists
Nelly Yoa, a professional soccer player on the practice team for Melbourne City FC’s Hyundai A-league team, spoke exclusively with HipHopDX on the phone and via email and recounted the incident. He also explained his request for a public or private apology from the West Coast artists. As a regular at the Eve Nightclub where the incident took place on January 25, Yoa says he has access to closed-circuit television footage that clearly shows YG, Ty Dolla $ign and a personal bodyguard kicking and punching him after he refused to leave the V.I.P. room.
After waiting for the artists to arrive at the club, Yoa says that a personal security guard cleared the V.I.P. section of paying customers.
“Once they did arrived in the booth, they did not look impressed with the party-goers,” Yoa says. “All of a sudden their body guard started abusing everyone, asking everyone to leave the V.I.P. booth immediately.”
After refusing to leave the booth, Yoa says the same security guard punched him before YG and Ty Dolla $ign joined in.
“I [wasn’t] gonna leave,” he says. “I had the right to be in there. All of a sudden he punches me. I sort of lean back a little bit. He tried to punch me again. I grabbed his collar and sort of dragged him down as I was falling from his punch. All of a sudden, Ty Dolla $ign punches me. All of a sudden, I see YG comes and kicks me to the side of the face while I was on the ground.”
“I was than [sic] escorted to rear exit of the club. As I was being escorted out, I see TY Dolla $ign, YG and their body guard [sic] leaving as-well coming up right behind me,” he adds in an email. “Ty Dolla $ign caught up to me, at this stage I was very angry and upset. So I wasn't sure if he wanted to continue to fight me or not. So straight away, I punched him to the right jaw of his face, and I ran. Thats when they started to chase me down the main road outside of the club.”
Representatives for YG and Ty Dolla $ign did not respond by press time.
