Lil Uzi Vert and Floyd Mayweather face scrutiny following allegations of a violent assault on a bystander.

TMZ reports that a man named Abdullah Ali is suing the genre-bending artist, the undefeated superstar, and members of Mayweather’s Money Team, alleging they were involved in assaulting him last summer.

According to the lawsuit filed on Thursday (June 20), in New York, Ali claims he was issued a brutal beatdown on June 27, 2023, after attempting to get a closer look at a trailer believed to belong to Mayweather near a NYC hotel.

Ali’s attorneys, Matthew Blit and Michael Rose, state that Uzi and Money Team members confronted Ali aggressively when they noticed him filming the unloading of a Rolls-Royce from the trailer. This led to a verbal altercation escalating into physical violence, where Ali alleges he was attacked by multiple individuals, including Lil Uzi Vert, for over a minute.

However, Uzi’s representative denies his involvement, asserting that the “Just Wanna Rock” rapper has no affiliation with Mayweather or his team and was not present during the incident.

Meanwhile, Ali’s lawsuit seeks unspecified damages for injuries he claims to have sustained, including his teeth being knocked-out, necessitating hospital treatment.

Mayweather’s team, on the other hand, has not yet responded to the claims.

It’s worth noting, that while the incident was reported to the police, no arrests were made at the time.

The lawsuit follows Lil Uzi Vert’s recent partnership with Marc Jacobs, where he appeared in a campaign endorsing the label’s newest creation, the Stephen Sprouse medium tote.

“Lil Uzi Vert for Stephen Sprouse x Marc Jacobs,” the fashion company announced on Instagram, directing fans to their online shop to snag their very own “limited-edition 40th Anniversary Tote Bag.”

The limited-edition bag, priced at $550, sold out quickly, marking a full-circle moment in Sprouse’s luxury-meets-punk legacy.
