Rapper Gucci Mane has been ordered to pay $60,000 to Diana Graham, a female he had pushed out of a moving Hummer in 2011. The $60,000 payment was ordered for punitive damages.
The victim had refused to head back to a hotel room with Gucci which led to the vehicle-based attack. Following the incident, the rapper was arrested, pled guilty to several charges filed against him stemming from the Hummer incident, and spent six months behind bars.
Following the incident, Diana Graham claimed mental anguish, pain, and emotional distress in a lawsuit against Gucci.
The ruling was automatically issued after a judge in Georgia ruled that Gucci had given false testimony. The rapper also failed to show up for the lawsuit.
In his final ruling, the judge awarded $58,161.24 for “medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering.”
If Gucci Mane plans to ignore the court ruling, he will be forced to pay. The judge gave permission to seize the rapper’s cars, bank account funds, and other possessions until the full settlement amount has been paid.
The US based rapper is believed to have a networth of $15 million.
Gucci’s reps have not responded to requests for information regarding the judge’s decision.
We’re not really surprised by his actions; after being released from a mental hospital, Gucci Mane had an ice cream tattoo drawn onto half of his face. Gucci Mane had been found mentally incompetent after he was arrested for driving on the wrong side of the road.
