Chicago rapper King Louie is being accused of allegedly hiring a woman to assault another woman on video to promote his mixtape.
Jazmine Berry, an associate of Def Jam Recordings artist King Louie, has filed a lawsuit claiming the rapper hired a woman to assault her on video, which he then uploaded to YouTube.com.
Berry says King Louie invited her to his home for breakfast last month. She said another woman, Josephine Conley, arrived at the home and accused her of stealing a pair of designer sunglasses.
The camera begins rolling as the other woman, Conley, bounds up the steps and accuses Berry of stealing a pair of Marc Jacobs sunglasses. Conley knocks a drink out of Berry’s hand and begins viciously assaulting the smaller woman while at least 2 people film the fight.
AS Berry screams for help, a man’s voice can be heard in the background saying, “I don’t know what ya’ll got going on. She said you took something from her.”
Two other people can be heard laughing in the background.
When another man breaks up the fight, Berry confronts the rapper, saying “Louie, you just gonna let her do that to me?”
Later, King Louie tweeted a link to the video on his official Twitter account with the hash tag #marcjacobsbandit.
In her lawsuit, Berry said she was longtime friends with King Louie but she never met Conley before. She is suing both King Louie and Conley for $1 million for damages for battery, conspiracy, emotional distress, and defamation, according to Allhiphop.com.
