Tyga And His Team Have Been Hit With Assault Accusations

Ever since Tyga has openly admitted to dating Kylie Jenner last year, it seems like the rapper has been faced with a lot of scrutiny. He received a lot of backlash for dating the teen. Tyga has also been making headlines for his alleged cheating scandals and financial problems.

Now both the rapper and his team have been hit with accusations. First off, did Tyga attack fellow rapper Ian Connor? Tyga took to Instagram to show off his new shiny purple diamond grill along with the caption, “@tvjohnny kool aid.” After the rapper shared the photo, his stylist Ian Connor tweeted, “Damn Tyga” with sad emoji faces.

Tyga then tweeted, “Damn Tyga what,” and after some back and forth bantering, Ian revealed, “Shoulda F***ed with Ben Baller Cus Ya Diamonds Looked Gapped Blood.” He then proceeded to tweet photos of his new diamond grill, designed by jeweler Ben Baller.

Tyga then tweeted, “bigger stones cuz. Ben did his than tho,” to which Ian replied, “Diamonds On My Teeth, You S**t Look Like Foil Yea.” The “Stimulated” rapper had enough, so he told Connor to “stop it.”

Was the rapper accusing Tyga of copying his signature look, or was he accusing him of biting him at one time or another? It wouldn’t be the first time that the rapper has been accused of assault. During Tyga’s performance at the Inception Sea cruise festival on March 12, the 26-year-old’s team was involved in a physical altercation with EDM group Cash Cash, their rep told Page Six.

“Jean Paul Makhlouf suffered a concussion, injured kidney – alongside bruises to his head and body following the scuffle. One member of Tyga’s touring crew hit Jean Paul in the face following a verbal altercation when Tyga’s crew refused to leave the stage after the promoter called Cash Cash to start their already delayed set.

“A Tyga crew member was [caught on video] kicking Jean Paul in the ribs, while another slammed him to the ground, punching and kicking his head and body while on top of him. Samuel Frisch was also shoved during the scene. Cash Cash was unable to perform their set and Jean Paul was also forced to miss their following show to recover from the incident.”

The band previously toured with Tyga back in November 2008 on the Nokia Live Tour. They also collaborated on Cobra Starship’s hit song “City Is at War.” Cash Cash also took to Twitter to share their side of the story in a series of tweets.

TMZ reported that Tyga was not part of the alleged physical altercation that took place. Sources close to the rapper claim that he was over an hour late for his performance on stage, which led to Cash Cash’s set being pushed back. Following the delay in production and scheduling, members of Cash Cash were allegedly caught unplugging the gear belonging to Tyga’s music man, D.J. S.B., which is how the verbal fight started.

Then Jean Paul Makhlouf allegedly threw the first punch, but suffered a concussion, injured kidney, and several bruises on his body, according to his rep. Because of the messy fight, members of Cash Cash were unable to perform their pushed-back performance. According to the TMZ report, Cash Cash admits to starting the verbal altercation, but claims that Tyga’s production crew were the ones who took things to a physical level.

It’s unclear whether legal action will be pursued or not, and sources added that Tyga had nothing to do with the brawl that took place that night. The rapper was already backstage preparing for the show.
