Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa Sued Once More for Collapsed Railing at New Jersey Show
The romanticized notion of "moving the crowd" has been around since before Rakim picked up a microphone, but one thing that's rarely been touched on is the perils of giving instructions to a raucous audience. Unfortunately, Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa have just learned the hard way, and it could hit them in their sturdy bank accounts.
According to TMZ, one 16-year-old girl's grandmother is suing the two rappers for allegedly instructing the crowd at their August show in New Jersey to "bring their motherfucking ass" down to where they were performing.
The subsequent mass movement led to the venue's railing collapsing, and the woman's granddaughter sustained some very serious injuries. According to TMZ, the injuries were so severe that the girl's dreams of being a champion cheerleader were ruined, and she's even had nightmares about the incident. The girl's grandmother is also planning to sue Live Nation for "inadequate crowd control." The grandmother says that her granddaughter was pinned down by a stampede of fans after falling 10 feet to the concrete. Before she could get back up, she was knocked unconscious, only to wake up with a broken arm and wrist.
If the grandmother's lawsuit is successful, Snoop and Wiz could stand to lose some big bucks, but we're sure they aren't happy about what happened to the 16-year-old girl. This isn't the first suit to come from the incident. In August, a man claims he suffered a fractured spine at the show.
Outside of legal problems, Wiz recently launched a clothing line based on his son Sebastian's interests. “All the designs are based around Sebastian—all of his hobbies and the things that he’s into. I just really wanted it to feel personal to him, so when he sees it, he gets excited,” Wiz told People. “He’s 3 years old, so he might not understand the concept of having his own clothing line. But the fact that all of his favorite things are all over his clothes, it makes him feel special; it makes him entertained by what he’s wearing.”
