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.
