A Man Sued Busta Rhymes for Alleged Assault


Busta Rhymes


Busta Rhymes has been sued by a man who claimed he and and his crew beat him after he spit on one of their cars.

Another day, another legal problem for Busta Rhymes. The rap star was hit with a lawsuit filed by a man, identified as Roberto LeBron, who claimed he was beaten by him and his crew last summer after accidentally spitting on Rhymes' SUV.

In the suit he filed Monday August 6th in New York State Supreme Court, Roberto alleged he was repeatedly punched and kicked in the body and face by Rhymes during an incident took place August 12th last year while his nine bodyguards stood by and watched. He, as a result, had to be treated at a nearby medical center for a concussion, split lip and injury to his wrist before being released soon thereafter.

As for Rhymes, the rapper was taken into custody several days later, spent a night in jail and was arraigned on misdemeanor counts of assault and harassment. He was released the day after. His attorney, Scott Leemon, however claimed he had yet seen the lawsuit, saying "Nothing has been proven yet."

Insisted Rhymes' actions against him to have been triggered by his persona, which the papers claim was "designed for publicity, marketing and profit purposes to be rogue, rude, aggressive, misbehaving, challenging, confrontational, disrespectful and, at times, criminal," Roberto is seeking unspecified compensatory and punitive damages from Rhymes, all nine of his bodyguards, and the record labels Interscope Geffen A&M, Universal Music Group Recordings and Aftermath Entertainment, which are blamed to have "utilized the unlawful and illegal behavior and promoted the image created as part of its marketing campaign" for all things Busta: records, concerts and merchandise."
