A$AP Rocky Sued by Woman Injured at Chicago Concert.
Tia Butts, a 21-year-old Chicago woman, sustained injuries to her head, neck, and back after one of the artists jumped off stage and landed on her. She reportedly was unsure of which performer jumped on her. Rocky’s show was opened by Been Trill.
Butts is suing the House of Blues, Rakim Mayers (Rocky), RSV Gallery, LLC, Live Nation Worldwide, Ticketmaster Entertainment, and Been Trill for $50,000. The suit says that the defendants “neglected to maintain a safe environment for the patrons.”
The woman’s lawyer has called the incident a “chaotic mess” and, speaking about whether an element of risk is inevitable at a show such as Rocky’s, commented: “I don’t think that is a foreseeable risk. Who is to say a hip-hop concert has to be more aggressive than, say, a performance at the Civic Opera House? Why should a performance be any different?”
