Chronixx management not only denied reports claiming that the reggae singer was beaten in Pris, but also say they are taking legal actions.
On Tuesday morning reports surfaced online claiming that Chronixx and his entourage were attacked over the weekend at a concert in the French capital.
The report claimed that Chronixx disobeyed rules set by the concert promoters and was subsequently denied access to the stage. But members of his entourage proceeded to assault of the security guard.
The report also went on to say that the security guard left the venue and came back with a group of men with high power rifles and baseball bat before viciously attacking Chronixx and his entourage.
The “Dread and Terrible” deejay has since released a statement denying the reports.
“These reports are not just false, they are also damaging to Chronixx image overseas,” a rep for Chronixx told Urban IslandZ. “No one was beaten nor was there any altercation involving Chronixx or any member of the band. We already notify our lawyers to address the matter.”
Chronixx is currently touring Europe for his Dread & Terrible tour which ends on April 23.
The reggae singer is also promoting his new album of the same name.
Chronixx Music Group has released the following statement:
MEDIA RELEASE April 15, 2014 Chronixx “Dread & Terrible Tour” is alive and well This is an official statement from Chronixx Music Group, the managers and booking agents for Chronixx.
Members of the Chronixx Music Group management team are currently on tour with Chronixx for the Dread & Terrible European Tour which features Chronixx, Kellissa, and Dre Island. We have been present at all concert performances presented so far, as we are responsible for the supervision of all aspects of the artists’ production, presentation and security on tour.
Our responsibilities including interface with show promoters and personnel hired by them. It has come to our attention that a false report is being circulated by Platinum Camp by way of an email under the name of the Platinum Camp CEO. This false report includes a story alleging that Chronixx and members of his team were beaten by security personnel after their performance at La Cigale in Paris on April 6, following an alleged earlier altercation between the team members and the security providers for the show.
We would like to take this opportunity to categorically state that there was no altercation whatsoever between members of the Chronixx team and security providers at the show. There was also no incident involving Chronixx or any member of his team where anyone was beaten, nor was there any incident involving security personnel with high powered weapons and baseball bats as alleged in the report above mentioned.
The “Dread & Terrible Tour” has continued with successful performances by Chronixx, Dre Island and Kelissa in various cities around Europe every night since the April 6th date in Paris. There are now 4 more dates remaining before the tour ends on April 20.
We consider the false report issued by Platinum to be not only unprofessional and irresponsible, but also very damaging to the credibility and good name of Chronixx and members of the Chronixx Music Group team. We have therefore consulted our attorney and will be seeking to have all necessary action taken to have this false report corrected, and any damage done repaired.
