Rapper 50 Cent is being sued by American Radio Host Bryhana Monegain after he unconsciously hit her with a microphone back in August 2023. The episode had left Monegain hospitalized.
The Rapper is being sued by the Los Angeles-based radio personality, who was injured and hospitalized after a microphone thrown by 50 Cent struck her face. She is suing the rapper for loss of wages that she brought about during the time of her recuperation and medical costs among others.
For the August 30, 2023 episode, 50 Cent was also sued for battery. However he disregarded the criminal allegations without facing any serious consequences, the new lawsuit doesn’t appear to be a ‘joke’ this time around.
Bryhana Monegain, the host of Power 106, a hip-hop station in Los Angeles sustained injuries after the Mic struck her.
Bryhana has now sued the rapper for the injuries she sustained. According to the legal documents obtained by The Blast, Bryhana via her lawsuit claimed,
“On or about August 30, 2023, [Bryhana] was lawfully on the [concert stage] and in the crowd watching Defendants G-Unit and [50 Cent’s] performance when he realized the microphone was not working, and threw the microphone towards a crowed area, causing the microphone to strike [her] face and left wrist and resulting in severe and permanent injuries.”
“Immediately after the incident, she was transported by ambulance to Los Angeles General Medical Center emergency department for treatment of injuries, including but not limited to, a concussion, laceration over her forehead, and pain in her left wrist. She complained of dizziness, headaches, light sound sensitivity, and nausea,” the filing further stated.
Monegain also asserted she “continues to suffer from severe injuries and emotional distress.”
Back in 2023, 50 Cent’s attorney, Scott Leemon told TMZ,
“Let’s be very clear, as I told LAPD this afternoon, my client Curtis [50 Cent] would never intentionally strike anyone with a microphone. Anyone saying something different doesn’t have all the facts and is misinformed.”
