Ty Dolla Sign and YG

One Fan Really, Really Wants An Apology From YG And Ty Dolla $ign

Last month in Melbourne, Australia, rappers YG and Ty Dolla $ign took it upon themselves to do it big after a packed out show. The two went to Eve Nightclub where Nelly Yoa, a regular clubgoer and professional soccer player on the practice team for Melbourne City FC’s Hyundai A-league team, was also in attendance. But the night didn't end too well for him. Nelly claims he was brutally assaulted by Ty Dolla $ign, YG and their security guard. He is now demanding an apology.

According to HipHopDX, Yoa spoke exclusively to them to recount the incident. Instead of foregoing legal actions, he is asking for an apology from the two West Coast artists. “At the moment I'm giving both YG, TY Dolla $ign and their body guard [sic] until next week...the chance to apologies [sic] to me publicly or privately,” he says. “Once that happen [sic] I'll be more than willing to withdraw any legal action against their names. I'm doing this as fan. I'm not trying to sue them. If I took that path in suing both artist, I think they'll be bankrupt. I'm not after money or in need of it, or settlement, this issue can be resolve like adult [sic] and as role model to the community. So I urge them to do the right thing.”

In Yoa's recollection of the event, it seemed like the night was a hell on earth for the Australian. It began with the rappers' dissatisfaction with the people inside of the club's VIP Room. After the disgusted look on their faces, their security guard took it upon himself to kick everyone out. Yoa refused, and that's when the first punch flew, followed shortly after by YG and Ty Dolla $ign. “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.”

Yoa claims he has access to television footage from the club, clearly showing the brutality executed by YG and Ty Dolla $ign. “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.” After returning to the club he was then asked to file a police report. He hopes to receive his apology within a week instead of pressing charges.

Jada Pinkett Smith Confirms Past Relationship With August Alsina

As promised, Jada Pinkett Smith brought herself to the infamous red table but she wasn’t alone. Will Smith joined his wife to address August Alsina’s claims in a special mini-episode of Red Table Talk that premiered on Friday (July 10).

Jada confirmed that she was once in a relationship with the 27-year-old singer while “separated” from Will. According to Jada, things with Alsina started out as a platonic friendship before turning into something more.

“As time went on, I got into a different kind of entanglement with August,” she admitted.

The actress went on to clarify that Will never August “permission” to date her. “The only person that can give permission in that particular circumstance is myself,” she said. “I could see how he would perceive it as ‘permission' because we were separated amicably and I think he also wanted to make it clear that he’s not a home wrecker — which he’s not.

“I was in a lot of pain. I was broken. I definitely realized that you can’t find happiness outside of yourself, and luckily enough, you and I were going through a process of healing in a much different manner,” Jada told Will. “I would definitely say we did everything we could to get away from each other only to realize that that wasn’t possible.”

Later in the talk, Will asked Jada what she was looking for in August. “I just wanted to feel good,” she said. “And it was really a joy just to heal somebody.”

The couple, who have been together for 25 years, also revealed their relationship mantra: “We ride together. We die together. Bad marriage for life.”
