T.I. and The Game nearly got into it with the LAPD a couple days ago because of an incident that escalated due to Hollywood’s Supperclub. A “mutual acquaintance” was harmed after scuffling with a rogue security personnel for an event outside the club.
Police were on the scene to diffuse the situation, but when T.I. and The Game arrived, they thought the cops were the ones responsible for the bloodshed. They soon turned their anger on the club once they realized it was them who was at fault.
Today (May 1), Supperclub released an official statement regarding the incident:
The events that happened in the parking lot behind Supperclub Los Angeles in the early hours of Wednesday morning are severely disheartening, leaving our company and organization frustrated, and our Hollywood neighbors saddened.
An unfortunate escalation between an angry on-looker who was denied entry to Supperclub, and a rogue security officer who took matters too far, led to an untenable altercation which represented the worst in all of us.
Although T.I. and The Game were in the parking lot during this time, they were not directly involved with this incident. Community leader “Big U”, of Developing Options, was in fact, not arrested, contrary to false reports, and had no part in this altercation. The third party security company that was hired for this outside promotional event, is not a part of Supperclub Los Angeles, and will never be booked by Supperclub, or the venue’s outside promotional vendors again.
The owners, management and family of Supperclub vehemently condemn this act, and any act of violence, as it directly contradicts its core philosophies of celebration of the arts, food and culture.
