Blueface just received a civil lawsuit from a woman who claimed to be injured during a strip club shooting involving the rapper in Las Vegas. Moreover, the incident occurred at the now defunct Euphoric Gentlemen's Club on October 8, 2022. According to local Vegas news station CBS 8 News's report on Thursday (March 23), Jasmine Brooks is suing both the rapper and the establishment in question. Furthermore, Blue stands accused of firing shots outside of the venue, and Brooke said that she sustained alleged injuries as a result.

From what lawsuit documents obtained by the news station indicate, the woman specifically blamed the California rapper and security for her troubles. She claimed to suffer "sustained injuries to her body, specifically her face as a result of defendants’ inadequate, unreasonable and egregiously deficient security of the property." However, the lawsuit doesn't specify how anyone injured her or the nature of the damages. Still, it adds that the 26-year-old "breached his duty of reasonable care by carrying and firing a firearm into a crowded room of people. At all relevant times, [the gentlemen’s club] allowed defendant Blueface to be a guest on their premises while in possession of an unidentified firearm," the lawsuit read.

Strip Club Shooting Gets Blueface Sued

Not only that, but Brooke reportedly seeks a jury trial and wants more than $15,000 in damages. Moreover, this adds to an already significant legal pile that the "Thotiana" MC faced as a result of the incident. Furthermore, authorities arrested him on November 15 of that year, just about a month after the shooting occurred. Also, officials charged him with attempted murder after a club patron claimed his crew jumped him for making a joke about their car.

In fact, it seems like Blueface took such offense to the joke that he shot at the patron's vehicle as they left. Previously, he confronted the rapper's entourage from his car and asked them, "Who hit me?" When someone reportedly approached the vehicle, the patron drove away, which is when Blue took the shots. What's more is that the club shut down because of this reason, and they also sued the rapper. All in all, it seems like he'll have to deal with a lot of legal pressure regarding this case.
