Rappers Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, Birdman, and others attended the 2013 BMI R&B/Hip-Hop Awards at Hammerstein Ballroom on Thursday, August 22 in New York City. According to celebrity blogsite TMZ, a fan of either Lil Wayne, T.I. or 2 Chainz was invited on board one of the tour buses by an entourage member during a tour stop in Oklahoma City earlier this week. The female fan says trouble started when she arrived at the bus with a female friend. The entourage member thrust his arm down her shirt and began feeling her breast. She told police she slapped his hand and he punched her in the face so hard she flew out the door and landed on her back with blood spurting from her mouth. The fan says her jaw was broken in two places. She required surgery and her jaw was wired shut. She says she will be sipping her dinner through a straw for 6 weeks.
