Radio Host Files Lawsuit Against 50 Cent Over Mic-Throwing Incident at Concert

LOS ANGELES – 50 Cent, the famous rapper, is now facing a civil lawsuit over an incident that occurred during a concert last summer. The lawsuit was filed by Bryhana Monegain, a Los Angeles radio host who claims she was struck by a microphone thrown by 50 Cent, resulting in “severe and permanent injuries.” Monegain has accused 50 Cent, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, and concert giant AEG of legal negligence.

According to Monegain’s lawsuit, the incident occurred in August when 50 Cent became frustrated with a malfunctioning microphone and threw it off to the side of the stage. Monegain alleges that the mic hit her in the face and left wrist, causing significant harm. She was taken to the Los Angeles General Medical Center emergency department, where she received treatment for a concussion, a laceration on her forehead, and pain in her left wrist. Monegain continues to suffer from her injuries and emotional distress, according to her lawyers.

Viral videos of the incident show 50 Cent visibly frustrated with the microphone and throwing it off the stage. Although the videos do not capture the moment the microphone hits anyone, Monegain shared photos on social media showing a wound on her forehead allegedly caused by 50 Cent’s mic.

In response to the lawsuit, representatives for 50 Cent have not yet provided a comment. However, his lawyer, Scott Leemon, previously stated that 50 Cent would never intentionally strike anyone with a microphone.

Although Monegain initially filed a police report alleging criminal battery on the night of the concert, no charges were ever filed. Both the L.A. District Attorney’s office and the L.A. City Attorney’s office declined to pursue a criminal case against the rapper.

In her lawsuit, Monegain claims that 50 Cent and AEG had a duty to ensure the safety of attendees and failed to create a safe environment. She argues that 50 Cent should have known the dangerous nature of throwing a microphone into a crowd but did so anyway.

The lawsuit does not specify the amount of money Monegain is seeking but requests compensation for past and future wage loss, hospital and medical expenses, and other general damages resulting from the harm she suffered.

AEG, the concert giant named in the lawsuit, has not yet responded to the allegations.
