Three Stabbed Following Jeremih Performance, Young Jeezy Denies Involvement
R&B newcomer Jeremih‘s performance at an Atlanta nightclub started out as an intimate affair but ended with three people being stabbed. The event, which took place early Thursday morning at Atlanta’s popular Luckie Lounge, featured performances and appearances by Ludacris, Jermaine Dupri, Young Jeezy, and Estelle.
According to reports, at approximately 2:30 am a fight broke out between T.I. affiliate DJ Drama, and Jeezy’s crew, not long after Jeremih took the stage. The scuffle resulted in one person, believed to be Jeezy’s bodyguard, getting stabbed in the face several times while two others were stabbed in the arms. The victims were later transported to Grady Memorial Hospital.
It was previously reported that Jeezy was one of the victims, but he has since cleared up such rumors. “We [were] at the bar,” Jeezy said in an interview. “I know they said something broke out, but we [didn’t] catch [any]thing. We got up out of the building and we left. You better quit listening to them TMZ-*ss dudes! Everybody we left with was good.”
Eyewitnesses said that upwards of 10 people were arrested at the scene, but their identities have yet to be released.
The violence is believed to have stemmed from a November 30 altercation between Jeezy’s CTE (Corporate Thug Entertainment) crew and members of DJ Drama’s crew.
