Ty Dolla $ign and YG are coughing up a big settlement.
Not too long ago, we reported that a former Australian soccer star was in the process of suing both Ty Dolla $ign and YG for the beating that he took at one of their live shows. Supposedly, his injuries were serious enough that he lost out on some serious soccer-related income as a result. Now, a settlement decision has been made public and, at the end of the day, the two rappers are coughing up a lot of dough to make this one go away.
According to TMZ, athlete Nelly Yoa says that he settled with both Ty Dolla and YG for a low six-figure sum in order to keep this matter out of court. This means that keeping the former soccer star from taking the litigation process further and, potentially, taking the witness stand himself set the emcees back a minimum of $100,000. In the grand scheme of things, this isn't a ton of money for either artist to be combining for, but it definitely wasn't an outright dismissal of Yoa's claims.
Back in August, the Aussie put both rappers on notice for what he claims was a brutal and violent affair during one of their club appearances Yoa claims that he was in the VIP area when Ty and YG, along with their respective crews, rolled up. When they tried to kick everyone else out of the exclusive lounge area and Yoa refused, he was supposedly subjected to punches, kicks to the head and other such blows that left him with some serious injuries.
