Busta Rhymes Accused Of Assaulting Woman, Victim “Afraid For Her Safety”
Veteran rapper Busta Rhymes has reportedly been issued a $250,000 lawsuit by a woman claiming he assaulted her in a Beverly Hills restaurant in June.
According to the lawsuit, Devin Cooper and her companion were patrons at the Mr. Chow eatery in Beverly Hills on June 26th, 2010 and were seated at a table next to Rhymes. Ms. Cooper claims a woman sitting with Rhymes began yelling at her that she was “too close to their table.” In response to the woman’s “loud and aggressive” comments.
Cooper claimed she then attempted to reposition her chair to please the group, but a woman in the Rhymes entourage continued to make comments. That’s when Rhymes allegedly began yelling at Cooper, saying “That’s my sister, that’s my blood!” and later allegedly threw a drinking glass at her, missing by only a matter of inches. Cooper says she was “shocked and afraid for her safety” and both she and her companion left the restaurant. Cooper is suing for assault and battery and is seeking $250,000 in damages.
