Lil Wayne’s Tour Dancers in Court for Assault — Watch
Jennifer Slaughter, 24 of Auburn Hills, Mich., and Della Hamby, 26, of North Hollywood, Calif., were in Connecticut Tuesday (July 12), rehearsing for ‘Tha Carter IV’ creator’s first stop on his tour Wednesday night (July 13).
During down time, the two ate at a local P.F. Chang’s, where they argued with a waitress over splitting a bill, for which the restaurant employee wanted Slaughter and Hamby to inform her about before they ordered.
The dancers, who were contracted by Lil Wayne and do not work directly for Young Money or the tour, left P.F. Chang’s but returned once they realized a cell phone had been left there. When they entered the premises, the assault on the waitress occurred.
One woman reportedly pulled the waitress’s hair, while another punched her and pushed her to the ground. The assailants were arrested and charged with third-degree assault and second-degree breach of peace.
Hamby and Slaughter saw a Connecticut judge on Wednesday, where their cases were postponed until August 24. They are expected to meet with the assault victim to resolve the incident, according to their lawyer.
