YG is being sued by a man over an alleged altercation that took place earlier this year in Las Vegas.
YG's been dealing with legal issues over the past month stemming from an alleged altercation that occurred earlier this year. A man sued YG of robbing and ordering his crew to beat him down. However, the rapper recently filed docs and shared some insight into his defense in the case.
According to The Blast, YG wants to put his civil case on pause until the criminal case over the incident concludes. After a grand jury indictment last month, YG is now facing three felony charges of robbery, grand larceny and larceny from prison. However, the rapper fears that whatever he says in the civil suit the alleged victim filed, the prosecutors from the criminal will attempt to use that information against him.
YG said the alleged victim, Benjamin Naderi, demanded that the rapper's deposition occur this month and gave him an October deadline to a lot of documents pertaining to the case. However, YG argues that shouldn't be required because the case should be put on hold. He said that Naderi refuses to put the case on pause and if the judge continues to allow this, it will infringe on his fifth amendment right to protect him from self-incrimination.
In the court documents, YG said, “In this case, Plaintiff concedes at 3 a.m., after essentially stalking” him, a verbal argument occurred because of "Plaintiffs unrelenting behavior… Only thereafter, and provoked by Plaintiff, did the alleged physical altercation occur."
