Joey Bada$$ was sued by a Trump impersonator who the rapper allegedly shoved off a stage.
Joey Bada$$ has cleared things up with a man who sued him for pushing him over a stage. According to The Blast, Joey Bada$$ has settled a $1.5M lawsuit against him from a man who accused him of pushing him off the stage and costing him thousands for medical bills.
Back in 2017, Joey Bada$$ was sued by a man who was dressed up as Donald Trump for an MTV event in L.A. Of course, Trump isn't everyone favorite person but apparently, even the image of the current president enraged the rapper. Philip Wilburn, the Trump impersonator, accused Joey of pushing him off the stage at the MTV event, causing serious injuries. The two have now resolved their issues. The documents note that they've agreed to close the case.
In the lawsuit, Wilburn said he had to spend $1000 on medical expenses after getting pushed off stage. He also told the court that he thought he was going to have to spend $25K on the surgery. Willburn claimed the injury cost him $50K in profits and he ultimately sued Joey Bada$$ seeking $1.5M in damages.

Aside from his legal issue, the rapper's been teasing new music coming this year. In January, he confirmed the Pro Era album has been completed. Keep your eyes peeled for that.
