In Old School News -- Johnny Gill Sues Four Seasons Over Racist Altercation
Former New Edition member, Johnny Gill is suing the Four Seasons hotel to court for a lawsuit because he claims they failed to protect him from a racist drunken man.
The incident supposedly happened on August 23rd when Gill was staying in the Four Seasons hotel in Beverly Hills. He claims that a drunken white person started saying racial slurs to him.
Johnny blames the bartenders completely and wants $1 million for pain and suffering, negligence, medical care, failure to intervene and reasonable care.
Johnny's paperwork states:
"Plaintiff is African American and this individual who uttered these racially charged negatives remarks was Caucasian.
"Plaintiff objected to these unsolicited remarks and when he did so, this individual pushed plaintiff with such force and intensity that plaintiff was thrust up against a heating lamp causing great bodily injury with resulting pain and suffering, major medical expenses and loss of earnings as plaintiff was unable to perform as an entertainer, plaintiff's extremely successful and lucrative chosen profession for over 20 years. At no time did defendant's security employees, staff or representative offer any assistance to plaintiff nor did any such intervene to protect plaintiff, prevent the individual from becoming inebriated and thus behaving in an unruly manner the result of which was the assault that was committed on plaintiff and the resulting injuries to plaintiff."
