50 Cents Concertgoer Hurt Badly: What Happened?

During Wednesday’s performance at the Arena, rapper Curtis Jackson, who performs under the stage name 50 Cent, appeared to become frustrated after being given two defective microphones in a row. As a result, he proceeded to toss one into the crowd, striking an individual who, at the time, was located in the production area near the stage – according to circulating fan videos. The victim of the incident, Bryhana Monegain, who is a host for the radio station Power 106, reportedly shared pictures with TMZ that revealed that she had a serious-looking wound on her forehead. Later on, more images of her wounded with the exact same injury were released on the Neighborhood Talk’s Instagram account.

As per the outlet, Monegain allegedly ended up filing a report to the Los Angeles Police Department in which she officially names 50 Cents as “a suspect in a criminal felony battery,” after the event. Traumatized, Monegain explained that the microphone hit her forehead very forcefully and resulted in a gruesome wound. A source also told PEOPLE magazine that it “is an unfortunate isolated incident where someone was in a restricted area they should not have been,” implying that the singer’s toss wasn’t intentional.

Statement Made By 50 Cents’ Legal Team After Alleged Fan Injury

In a statement provided to EW, 50 Cent’s attorney Scott Leemon addressed the incident, making it clear that the rapper would never intentionally hit someone with a microphone. The lawyer explained that his client grew frustrated after being given two defective microphones at the event, but he stated that Jackson “would never” intentionally hurt anyone with a mic. Leemon emphasized that those saying otherwise are “misinformed” and are not aware of all the facts surrounding the situation. Here’s the word to word statement:

“Let’s be very clear, as I told LAPD this afternoon, my client Curtis would never intentionally strike anyone with a microphone. Anyone saying something different doesn’t have all the facts and is misinformed.”
