A Canadian plus-size model has retained an attorney to pursue legal action against rapper Future Hendrix for allegedly banning her from a Miami nightclub because she's overweight.
Naomie Chaput, who goes by Nao, was planning to go to Story nightclub in Miami on Friday with a friend, but she was told not to bother showing up because the Atlanta rapper said "no fatties" were allowed.
"She was on her way there and they were in contact with the promoter who had arranged for them to go to the club," her publicist Daniel Bouabdo told BuzzFeed News.
According to him, the promoter said, "Don't even bother coming. Future asked for no fatties."
Nao and Bouabdo have now hired a law firm to help them pursue legal action against Future, real name Nayvadius Wilburn, after he refused to apologize and called her a liar when she reached out to him privately on Instagram.
"Nobody denied this behavior, nobody disassociated themselves from this type of behavior," said Bouabdo. "We would like to believe that Future doesn't condone such behavior but he's leaving Nao no choice but to ask for an apology. It's been now over 72 hours, and I still don't have any answers for his publicist or his manager."
After Nao went public with her allegations on Instagram Stories, Future seemed to indirectly refer to her claims on Twitter by writing, "STOP CAPPIN ON MY NAME..I love all women."
When Nao didn't receive a response from his team, she sent him a private Instagram message to try and clear up the situation.
According to screenshots of the conversations provided by Nao, Future replied, "U lied on my name... U should've said story (the club) told u that sh-t... U said my name."
Nao then explained that she wasn't trying to spread rumors and gave Future the opportunity to speak out against the club's behavior, but he allegedly replied, "U condone accusing the wrong person and lying... that's evil! Spread the truth next time when you falsely accuse someone! Your call."
