(EXCLUSIVE) A$AP Rocky Dropped From Lawsuit Over Stage Diving Accident
theJasmineBRAND.com exclusively reports, A$AP Rocky has scored a victory in the legal battle with a concert-goer – who accused the rapper and his entourage of causing her spinal damage after members of his crew jumped into the crowd and allegedly landing on the fan, with the woman throwing out all claims against the rapper this week.
Here’s the backstory: A woman named Krystina Clowes filed suit against A$AP Rocky, A$AP Ferg, Young Shabba and Live Nation in federal court earlier this year.
She stated that on August 3rd 2013, she attended the “Under the Influence” tour featuring A$AP Rocky and Wiz Khalifa which was put together by Live Nation.
Clowes explained that she in the crowd during the A$AP Mob set (which consists of Rocky and his fellow crew members/rappers). During A$AP Ferg’s performance, Young Shabba jumped from the stage to the crowd and his body “made violent and forceful contact with” her body causing her to crash hard to the ground. She said she was dazed, shocked and offended that he would risk other’s safety by jumping into the audience.
Following the incident, she tried to have a concert worker take her to the medical station but he refused to make room in the crowd for her to safely reach medical attention. She finally made it to the medical center where she filed a report and then was taken via ambulance to a local hospital.
Clowes claimed she remained in considerable pain and discomfort for weeks following and had to seek additional medical treatment after she learned she suffered a fractured vertebra.
Further, she had to get chiropractic treatment and chemical drug treatments for her injuries. She said she will continue to suffer pain, inconvenience, embarrassment, mental anguish and loss of enjoyment of her life .. along with future medical bills to treat her injuries.
The woman claimed that A$AP Rocky and his crew have a history of leaping from the stage into crowds and a number of people have been hurt in the past. She blames Live Nation along with Rocky and his entourage for not preventing this from happening at the concert.
She filed suit against A$AP Rocky, A$AP Ferg, Young Shabba and Live Nation for in excess of 225k for her injuries.
Live Nation – who was responsible for promoting the concert – fired back at the woman’s lawsuit saying they can’t control people like A$AP Rocky and his crew and had no knowledge they were going to jump off the stage into the crowd during the performance and therefore cannot be held liable for the rappers actions.
The company blasted the allegations the venue was unsafe for the audience and says the conditions played no role in the alleged incident in question.
Live Nation also said that if the woman did actually suffer injuries it should be other parties – A$AP Rocky and his entourage – not them and they are demanding all claims against them be thrown out.
Here’s the latest: On May 23rd, Clowes returned to court and filed docs in the case explaining she is dropping all claims against A$AP and he is off the hook for now over the allegations in her complaint.
The woman will continue on with her case against Live Nation and A$AP Ferg and Young Shabba but A$AP Rocky has been dismissed from the lawsuit.
