Young Money rapper and Justin Bieber’s BFF Lil’ Twist is allegedly a suspect in the beating – and pantsing – of former Nickelodeon star Chris Massey on Friday afternoon (Nov. 7).
According to TMZ, Twist and a group of friends were at Massey’s older brother’s apartment in Los Angeles when an argument occurred. The site reports that Twist, along with others, beat Massey up, and then “after pounding him, one source says Twist and his buds doled out some humiliation by pulling Chris’ pants off.”
Last month, Twist took to Twitter to vent about his grievances with his management team over unreleased music. Similar to claims made by Tyga just days later, it seemed both Young Money artists are having difficulty dropping records under Lil’ Wayne’s imprint. Twist was also arrested for a DUI last year.
Massey was reportedly taken to a hospital for treatment, and authorities will investigate the situation.
UPDATE: The Massey family has released a statement regarding the incident:
We want everyone to know that Christopher is fine and he was defending himself after Twist and four unknown suspects broke into Kyle & Christopher’s penthouse and robbed and assaulted him. Christopher is doing well and did get medical attention as reported, but has no physical concerns especially with the severity of the altercation. The police are still looking for the four accomplices. We plan to legally pursue this to the full extent of the law.
Finally, we would like to thank the police who did an amazing job responding to the incident.
