On October 30th, Odd Future’s Left Brain reportedly slapped photographer Amy Harris in New Orleans, Louisiana at the Voodoo Experience festival. After initially holding off on filing a report, Harris has decided to press charges against the rapper, whose real name is Vyron Turner.
The photographer explained in a note on her website that after Odd Future denied that the incident took place and attacked her credibility, she changed her mind in pressing charges and plans to “pursue [her] options.”
Read the full note below.
“I was very disheartened to learn yesterday that Odd Future is denying that one of its members, Vyron Turner (“Left Brain”), engaged in the violent conduct that so many people witnessed and even photographed or videotaped. After he so publicly attacked me, I truly believed that an apology would be immediately forthcoming, which is why I declined to press charges at that time. The unexpected turn of events, including an attack by Odd Future on my credibility and motives for discussing the incident, have caused me to re-evaluate my initial decision. I’ve contacted an attorney – Amy Borlund with Doll Amir & Eley in Los Angeles – and am pursuing my options. At a minimum, I am seeking a public apology from Vyron Turner. Ultimately, I want a resolution in which Turner is held accountable for his actions.”
I appreciate the overwhelming concern for me personally and the many professional photographers who have reached out and shown support for me during this unfortunate situation.
