50 Cent microphone toss hits the fan; Lawyer Reacts to Battery Report Filing – Deadline

It was an accident that a dead microphone that 50 Cent threw off the stage last night in Los Angeles hit the radio host in the head, he says. power Star lawyer.

“Let’s be very clear, as I told the LAPD this afternoon, my client Curtis would not intentionally strike anyone with a microphone,” Scott Lemon told Deadline of the hit Power 106 host Brehanna Monnigin received on Curtis’ Cryto.com site 50 “Cent” Jackson. Arena show on August 30th. “Anyone who says something different doesn’t have all the facts and is misinformed,” the New York-based attorney added.

A battery report was filed with police after the incident, Deadline confirmed. A law enforcement source said that the Los Angeles Police Department is at this stage collecting information about the incident. From the video of last night’s show and others, there seems to be no doubt that 50 people threw the mic and that Monegain was injured – the how and why of that is under a microscope, I’ve heard.

After the show last night, various photos of Mongin were posted online revealing deep cuts on her forehead. However, there appears to be some disagreement as to why Monegain was where she was when the microphone toss occurred.

In contrast to the recent altercation between fans who threw potentially lethal substances onto the stage, a video from last night clearly shows the “In Da Club” rapper getting frustrated with the microphone he was just handed while his stage companion YG performed “Toot” and played it. This is supposedly the fourth dead mic 50 received during their Final Lap Tour date last night.

Unable to get the microphone working, Jackson then threw said microphone into the area directly in front of the stage – not into the audience. That fenced area is where the fireworks and audio equipment are stored. How or why Monnigin was in the restricted area is unknown at this stage, and is part of the investigation into what happened.

It is common for shows like 50 Cent that the pyro and sound area directly in front of the stage is legally off-limits to all but authorized personnel for safety reasons that have nothing to do with mic throwing.

Quiet about the incident so far, Jackson appeared in Chula Vista tonight, with Irvine and Sacramento making stops over the next week on a tour that travels elsewhere in the US and reaches Canada, before heading to Europe at the end of September.
