Kid Rock Says He Was Just Trying To Defend Himself!

| Filed under: Legal MattersKid Rock



Kid Rock appeared in court yesterday for the fight that broke out in a suburban Atlanta Waffle House back in 2007 and his lawyer claimed that Kid and his entourage were only trying to defend themselves from another customer.

He and five other people are being sued over the fight.

A man named Harlen Akins claims that they beat him up for no reason and is seeking unspecified punitive damages as well as $6,000 in medical fees.

Kid says Akins kept trying to provoke an argument and while video surveillance shows the fight, there is no sound to hear what was being said.

The trial is expected to end today or tomorrow.

5 on 1 sounds a bit suspicious to us, though!

What do U think?

    EWWW, EWWW and more EWWW!!! God he is so gross looking. Did he even wash his hair or shower before he went to court? Trailer trash at its best right there. I think I am going to puke……

    Well, everyone knows the Waffle House is a little shady - your potatoes can come scattered, sliced, diced, smothered, and covered for goodness sake!

    He is partially bald which is perfectly fine. However, he turns 40 in January and is therefore, no longer a kid but a middle aged singer. He needs a haircut, some hair plugs (or just shave the whole thing off) and he needs to remove the "kid" from his name.

    He is so gross!

    That is a really bad rug he is wearing. You can see where his real hair is and ewwww!

    I'm sorry but NO ONE is his position would start a fight if not provoked. Someone is just looking to make some money.

    1. The guy in green is a "PROMOTER" who probibly followed him there. since he new the girl with him whom he ( The scum in Green HARLEN AKINS ) was taunting most likely because she is the ex of Shug Knight. And he was jealous of her being with Kid.
    2. If you follow the video there was lots of talk an then he threw the first punch at The large Black man (Who's nick name is Bossy). who had previously blocked him from Kid the first time. I am pretty sure he can hold his own he has great Ab's and is in perfect shape.
    3. the guy is a gold digger who went there to start a fight on purpose. What ever he thought of shug's ex he should hve kept him mouth shut. He insulted the girls in front of all the guys . Now he wants to cry about it. TORT LAW should not be used to extort the more fortunate.

    WHAT DID KID DO TO YOU! PEREZ! This AKINS guy is slime. Kid may have not washed his hair before arriving at court! But he helps others and is really very nice.

    He is in serious need of some shampoo and a haircut.

    The guy is out for money. If you've followed this story at all, there were plenty of witnesses that came forward stating that the other guy started it. You can't provoke someone and not expect them to fight back and for some reason, people like to try and be tough guys and start stuff with Kid Rock. As for his hair in the photo, there are other photos of him from the same day, before court and he was wearing a hat - he has hat hair. As someone who grew up in the Detroit area, I can tell you that if you try to start something with someone from there, you're going to get what you deserve and not only will you get it from the person you were trying to start it with, but you'll also get it from all their friends.

    I think there are probably witnesses; and the rest of us have been put on hold.

    I've seen the video and it was totally Kid Rock and his crew ganging up on one poor dude. No matter what he was 'saying', the video shows all his people jumping the guy while he's sitting in a booth. They should have to pay him millions, not $6000.

  17. 17

    Well, this is better than what you normally say about 'Kid'… BUT I still think you need to hear the whole story before judging him. He has never done anything to you or anyone you love. I am a TOTAL Perez lover but I will never agree with you bashing him. xoxo

    Kid Rock is so gross and such a dumb hillbilly redneck. I guess there are a lot of those out there because he still has some fans. YUCK! I am on the other guys side. Even if the guy said something like you suck. That doesnt give Kid Rock the right to hit him. We aren't animals but when other stupid rednecks hear about this, they will go on about how the guy deserved it..etc. The guy is only seeking 6,000 bucks, so he is not going after Kid for his money. White trash all the way.

    If I were a juror i would be skeptical of a plaintiff stating "I got beat up for no reason"…takes the guys credibility away. The smart thing for him to have said was "i was talking garbage to kidrock, then they physically attacked me". I just don't see people beating the hell out of him for just sitting there. That statement takes the credibility away from this guy.

    "5 on 1 is a bit suspicious"?!?! HOW?! He's a celebrity… He has bodyguards… That's their job!!! WTF?! IF the guy DID provoke them, then, he should've known better–especially when someone has BODYGUARDS with them… And IF the ENTOURAGE started it, then, they SHOULD be held responsible AND have to pay… Guess we'll find out soon enough…

  21. 21

    He's is just sooooo ugly. Disgusting!

    Re: SuziQsi – LOL! I AGREE!

    Although I am impressed that Perez hasn't ripped Kid to shreds on this one, I am still annoyed by all the unnecessary comments. Why the hate people? Kid is a great artist who does so many great things for his community, detroit, the state of Michigan and for our troops over seas. Why do we feel the need to bash on his looks? The Waffle house fight happened forever ago. Moving on to his amazing music….

    Ok…I don't know why, but after reading the first 2 lines I started cracking up…seriously, a Waffle House??!?
