Busta Rhymes Sued For $250,000 For Throwing Glass At Woman


Busta Rhymes is in headlines now that a woman has filed a lawsuit claiming that he assaulted her with a glass.

Busta, real name Trevor Smith, was named in a lawsuit by the woman, Devon Cooper, who claims she “feared for her safety” after getting into an argument with him at Mr. Chow’s restaurant in Beverly Hills.

In the lawsuit Cooper claims that she and a friend were dining at the establishment when a member of Rhymes’ entourage complained that the pair was sitting too close to rapper’s table.

Cooper says she tried to move her chair but says Busta’s accomplice became increasingly agitated and the situation escalated until the rapper threw a drinking glass at her that missed her by “inches.”

She is seeking $250,000 in damages for assault and battery.

    This is where ignorance and lack of self-control proves to be costly. I have never been to Mr. Chow, but I have been to enough restaurants to know they cram in tables close to each other, most times you can hear clearly what you neighbors are talking about. Busta should have spoken to restaurant management about this, the woman should not even have been addressed at all. He could have simply asked to be reseated in a different section, but I guess that prolly took more brain cells than he possess.

    This is a jokke that will end nowhere. If she was arguing with Busta’s boy, why would Busta chuck a gl@ss at her. She’s only suing him cos he’s got money…..his boy there is probably on welfare & will not be worth the paper the summons comes on.
