Busta Rhymes Sued For Assault And Battery

Busta Rhymes finds himself in hot water for allegedly throwing a glass at a woman in public.

Busta Rhymes is being sued for assault and battery, reports RadarOnline.com.

Adding to a laundry list of criminal cases over the past several years, the Brooklyn rapper has been accused of throwing a glass at a woman in an upscale restaurant in Beverly Hills on June 26, 2010.

Devin Cooper claims that she and a companion were sitting at a table near Rhymes and another woman at the Mr. Chow eatery. The woman that was sitting with the rapper allegedly began yelling at Cooper that she was "too close to their table."

Cooper claims she attempted to reposition her chair to avoid any further arguments, but when the woman continued to make comments, Cooper says she asked her to please calm down.

In reponse, Busta allegedly yelled at Cooper,"that's my sister, that's my blood!" Eventually, after continuing "increasingly threatening conduct," the animated emcee threw a drinking glass at hear, missing by inches.

Cooper is suing for assault and battery and is seeking $250,000 in damages.

  • Greg

    Busta.. your 5 mins was up a few years back. Stop being mad at everyone by trying to eff up everyone. Take what little money you have and fade to the background son.. Be gone with yourself....

    lol @ busta nigga crazy thats a lot of dough to drop for something stupid if you tired of the bullshit simpleton lyrics with no depth or character at all check this new guy out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fXnvuNmXDIE

  • chrisp

    You can argue that she was assaulted and battered: emotionally & verbally. Considering the amount of money made over his career he should pay 250 k for acting like a moron and possibly injuring someone. If he gets sued for 700 dollars do you think he will care about changing his behavior? That is barely a punishment for him. I believe if this story is true, 250K is a good amount of money that should remind Busta to carry himself with some class and dignity. If this story is false, well that women needs to do time for false accusations. 1

    • @ChrisP

      yes you are correct. good post. be careful as there are pigs and faggots on this site and one of them is the "anonymous" that responded to you. keep up the intelligent posts.

    • edubb1977

      CHRISP YOU ARE 100% CORRECT I WISH SOME OF THE PEOPLE WOULD OPEN THEIR EYES TO THE FACT THAT REGARDLESS IF THE GLASS MISSED THAT BUSTA WAS WRONG 40 YEARS OLD ACTING LIKE A STUPID IGNORANT LITTLE KID HE SHOULD BE SUED JUST ON GP AND IF THE WOMAN IS LYING HELL YEAH SHE NEEDS TO BE CHARGED FOR A FALSE REPORT ANYWAY GOOD POST

    • ChrisP

      Calling me a fag is all you can come up with? That really hurts me. yeah, Please don't grow up because your maturity is overwhelming me. I can't find anything else to say in order to respond to you. Good work kiddo.

      your a fag shut the fuck up

  • law

    lmao it missed her and she thinks shes gonna get a a quarter of a mill

  • Dreadrock

    So... she didn't press charges, but she's bringing a lawsuit? Some ol' bullsh!t

    • Dreadrock

      You contradict yourself right here... "It's not some ol' bullshit. It's some cunning ass shit, and to be honest, kinda takes some balls. Quarter-Mil is a lot of be asking in this case." ...and there is nothing cunning about this, People do this all of the time. Also, if she's so concerned about what her taxes are paying for, shouldn't she be concerned that tax dollars are paying for the police and courts? She's out for self.

    • Pat Neeland

      Pressing charges would mean jail time for Busta. Devin Cooper knows what'up. Think about it. Busta goes to jail, taxpayers pay for his time spent there. Devin Cooper is probably a tax payer. So technically, if she wins the case, she's gonna end up paying for his punishment. Now, if you file a lawsuit, you've turned the tables around, and if Cooper wins, Busta's gotta pay HER, instead of the other way around. It's not some ol' bullshit. It's some cunning ass shit, and to be honest, kinda takes some balls. Quarter-Mil is a lot of be asking in this case.

  • Its Um

    The word is allegedly, till found guilty amoung his peers his is innocent of these acts. Don't believe everything u read until it's proven true.

  • gutter man

    maybe she deserved is pussies! bunch of rats on this site. die slow.

  • jim

    How old is Busta 40 years or something? And still acting like a child. Does he thinks he owns the world because he's a rapper. rappers are so arogant

  • edubb1977

    EVERYONE KEEPS POINTING OUT THE FACT THAT THE GLASS DIDNT HIT HER WHEN THAT IS NOT THE FUCKIN POINT. THE POINT IS BUSTA SHOULDNT HAVE ACTED LIKE A NIGGA BEHIND SOME BULLSHIT. SHE MOVER HER CHAIR TO AVOID AN ALTERCATION AND THE WOMAN BUSTA WAS WITH KEEP THE SHIT GOING AND THEN BUSTA ACTED LIKE A TYPICAL NIGGA BUT I FORGET WE NOW LIVE IN A SOCIETY WHERE WRONG IS RIGHT AND RIGHT IS WRONG SOME OF YOU NEED TO GROW THE FUCK UP BUSTA IS WRONG PLAIN AND SIMPLE IF YOU CANT FIGURE THAT SHIT OUT SOMETHING IS WRONG WITH YOU SOCIETY IS TRULY FUCKING SAD THERE WAS A TIME WHEN US BLACK PEOPLE CARRIED OURSELVES WITH PRIDE AND TO READ THAT SOME OF YOU ARE CONDONING WHAT BUSTA DID IS TRULY SAD BUT IM GONNA CHALK IT UP AS SIGNS OF THE TIMES WHAT A FUCKIN SHAME

    • edubb1977

      @gutter man - if im narrow minded then i will take that all day long because hey my comments may be narrow minded but they are on point i can just imagine what your thoughts are on the situation....... let me guess you probably would have thrown a chair at the woman over some bullshit

    • gutter man

      boo hoo. narrow minded perspective.

    • Anonymous

      i agree 100%. but i still fucks with his raps, i just don't condone ignorance or ignorant behavior and this was ignorant. i hope he learns his lesson though...at 40 years of age...

  • Charlie Bee

    How is she suing him for assault and battery when in the article it states "the animated emcee threw a drinking glass at hear, missing by inches." Either the person that did this article didn't do their homework or the lawsuit is b.s.

    • Prez

      It doesn't matter if it didn't hit her, all that matters is he intended too, she can sue and win based off of that. Sad but true.

  • E Sky

    Hang in there Busta Bust Baby! We love you forever!

  • lordoftheeworld

    This is absolute bullshit..

  • SMMFH

    This is a sad state of affairs. I don't even know where to begin with this story. Number 1. dude shouldn't even be in L.A. flippin on anyone(Let alone Cali, period),he already got problems out here to begin with. Number 2. The lady has a reasonable assault gripe, however she's not getting anything remotely close to what she's asking. the judge may just tell her to have a coke and a smile. My being a fan of Busta's has been fizzling out, since...oh maybe after 2002. It's no secret that he's a bit of an asshole and goes overboard with shit all the time(you've all youtube'd that vid when he went to that high school and got in that kid's face. kid was wrong but Bust went a little far)but maybe we should really reserve our judgment until(and if)the facts are revealed. I want the old busta back and for those of you that remember L.O.N.S. you know what I mean

  • Anonymous

    wow that bitch whose suing must be hurting. in the words of pac "bitch get a job if you wanna be rich"

  • edubb1977

    I HOPE SHE GET EVERY PENNY IM TIRED OF HEARING STORIES ABOUT BUSTA ACTING A FOOL FOR NO REASON. SHOULDNT ACT LIKE A IGNORANT ASS NIGGA IF YOU DONT WANT TO BE SUED. SO WHAT IF THE GLASS MISSED HER THAT AINT THE THE POINT. JUST BECAUSE AN INDIVIDUAL HAS A LOT OF MONEY OR WHATEVER THE CASE MAY BE DOESNT GIVE ANYONE THE RIGHT TO ACT LIKE AN UNTRAINED SAVAGE ANIMAL. AND SOME OF US BLACKS WONDER WHY THE OTHERS STILL CALL US NIGGERS. BECAUSE OF STUPID ASS SENSELESS BULLSHIT LIKE THIS. SO WHATEVER SHE IS AVAILABLE TO WIN IN THIS CASE I HOPE SHE GETS IT ALL.

      i agree his actions were wrong. no doubt. but at the same time people sue for nonsence no adays. is throwing a glass and not even hitting anyone worth $250 000? i sure don't think so. but he was still wrong. the biggest thing about the issue is not his actions but the fact that he was doing this toward a woman

  • Travis B.

    Wow Busta is a beauty. And "notorious hater" your such a dud!

  • the notorious H.A.T.E.R

    Ive heard too many stories of Busta flippin on fans for it to not be true. i even know people personally that have had run ins with this cat. he is an asshole. i used to love his music, now im not a fan anymore, and alot of people feel the same way. i will never buy another busta album. FUCK that nigga!!

  • lmao

    ooper claims she attempted to reposition her chair to avoid any further arguments, but when the woman continued to make comments, Cooper says she asked her to please calm down. In reponse, Busta allegedly yelled at Cooper,"that's my sister, that's my blood!" lmfao are you fucking kidding me? god black people are hilarious. but this bitch is crazy she didnt even get hit.
