As a result of the assault, Chris Massey states in the lawsuit that he suffered numerous injuries — including multiple cuts and bruises. Massey reportedly had to get stitches placed over his eye. Massey also claims that his Rolex was stolen by Lil Twist’s crew on the same day of the attack.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Chris Massey was assaulted by Lil Twist and several of his friends on the afternoon of Friday, November 7. Reports claim that Lil Twist and his friends attacked Chris Massey after an argument broke out between them. Once they were finished attacking Massey, they reportedly pull his pants off in front of everyone in attendance to embarrass him.
A police report was filed shortly after the assault and Chris Massey sought medical attention for his injuries.
Shortly after the news of the attack was reported, the Massey family issued an official statement in reference to the assault, which also addressed how they decided to handle it.
“We want everyone to know that Christopher is fine and he was defending himself after Twist and four unknown suspects broke into Kyle & Christopher’s penthouse and robbed and assaulted him. Christopher is doing well and did get medical attention as reported, but has no physical concerns especially with the severity of the altercation. The police are still looking for the four accomplices. We plan to legally pursue this to the full extent of the law.”
Christopher Lynn Moore (Lil Twist), 22, was reportedly charged with six felonies in March because of the attack by the L.A. County District Attorney, including criminal threats, grand theft, burglary, battery along with two separate counts of assault with a deadly weapon.
