UPDATE 2:55 PM EST: The band released a statement following the altercation:
Early Saturday morning members of Tyga's touring crew physically assaulted Cash Cash during an altercation backstage at Inception at Sea cruise festival. Members affected include Samuel Frisch, and Jean Paul Makhlouf. Jean Paul Makhlouf suffered a concussion, injured kidney, alongside bruises to his head and body following the scuffle. One member of Tyga's touring crew hit Jean Paul Makhlouf of Cash Cash in the face following a verbal altercation when Tyga's crew refused to leave the stage after the promoter called Cash Cash to start their already delayed set. [Tyga had postponed his 12:30-1am set to 1:45-2:35am overlapping with the set time of Cash Cash on the same stage.] A Tyga crew member was then filmed kicking Jean Paul in the ribs, while another Tyga crew member slammed him to the ground, punching and kicking his head and body while on top of him. Samuel Frisch was also shoved during the scene. Cash Cash was unable to perform their set and Makhlouf was also forced to miss their following show to recover from the incident.
A member of the EDM group Cash Cash claims to have been assaulted by Tyga's team right before they were supposed to perform at the Inception at Sea cruise festival over the weekend.
According to the music group's Twitter page, JP (Jean Paul Makhlouf) was attacked by the rapper's entourage just minutes for their scheduled set — and they've got the pictures to prove it! They intend on posting video evidence as well.
Wow. This is crazy!
No word yet from Tyga's camp but we will keep you posted.
