Migos Sued Over Concert Brawls That Left Fans Stabbed, Robbed and Beaten
Migos are being hit with two different lawsuits over a concert brawl that took place in March 2015, which resulted in fans being stabbed, robbed and beaten during the show.
According to TMZ, the suit claims that during their Albany, N.Y. concert in 2015, the rap trio allegedly incited a violent riot by telling the crowd to "give them hell" and "kick ass," which left fans attacked in the crowd.
A portion of one lawsuit reads, "The actions of the defendants caused patrons to be stabbed, robbed, beaten, severely harmed, and injured as the defendants continued to incite a select group of individuals to continue the onslaught of attacks, assaults, and destruction of the premises. Despite the severity of the incident the defendants were seen laughing and egging the crowd on as metal gates were ripped from the ground and thrown into the crowd."
The first lawsuit comes from the concert venue, Albany Basketball & Sports Corporation, claiming that they experienced legal trouble with the city following the violent show, and even lost their liquor license. In the lawsuit, they say that they also dealt with bad press and show cancellations following Migos' appearance. They also say they were forced to reimburse concertgoers who paid extra for the meet-and-greet portion of the show, which Migos missed because they were three to four hours late.
One of the concert attendees Sharome Ross is also suing the Atlanta hitmakers and the venue for injuries he obtained during the concert. In the suit, Ross claims that he suffered “serious permanent personal injuries…caused solely by reason of the negligence of the defendants.”
So far, Migos has not publicly responded to the lawsuits, but hopefully things can be worked out between them and the defendants.
