Rich Homie Quan Settles Lawsuit By Bouncer: ‘Cutting a Check Was a Business Decision’
Rich Homie Quan settled a legal case against by a bouncer who claimed that the rapper viciously assaulted him outside of a club.
In a March 2015 incident, RHQ was trying to enter inside LIV nightclub in Miami when the bouncer named Christian Cajigas denied him because the venue was filled to capacity. The Atlanta rapper threw a tantrum and then punched Cajigas right in the nose before his entourage joined in and pummeled him to the ground. Afterward, the “Lifestyle” rapper darted away and jumped into a nearby speedboat and fled the scene.
RHQ eventually turned himself into police and was hit with assault charges. Meanwhile, the bouncer sued the rapper for a broken nose he suffered during the altercation.
On Tuesday (Feb. 7), Quan settled the lawsuit for $60,000, according to TMZ. Attorneys for Cajigas hopes it sends a message to celebrities and regular folk that they can’t go around punching people.
RHQ’s lawyer, Ricardo Corona, sees it another way. Although the “Type of Way” rapper settled it out of court, he feels his client would have won if it did went to trial. “Cutting a $60,000 check was simply a business decision,” he reportedly told the gossip website.
