Blueface‘s alleged shooting victim has come forward with more details regarding why he believes the “Thotiana” rapper targeted him.
In his first sit-down interview since the incident, Kentavious “Tay” Traylor, who was allegedly shot by Blueface outside a Las Vegas strip club last October, spoke with Cam Capone News to share his side of the story.
During the interview, Osborne claimed he was jumped outside the club over his choice of attire — specifically, a T-shirt featuring the Playboy bunny logo.
“A guy hit me. I said, ‘Alright, I’m about to beat your ass.’ I pulled up my pants and got ready to fight, and next thing you know I’m getting jumped,” he recalled.
“Honestly, it all started because of a shirt I had on. I just had on a Playboy bunny shirt — that’s how all of this started. They thought I was a from rival gang or something.”
He continued: “Didn’t press me. Didn’t do any of that. But I mean, inside the club or any of that — or even outside the club. I guess he had said some slurs to me, but since I don’t gang-bang, I didn’t pick them up. I mean, I’m just walking to my car.”
Osborne also suggested that there was no “justice” done on his part and said there’s a “whole video” identifying his attackers that the public has yet to see.
“That’s why I don’t rock with the DEA either. There’s so many things that they could release, that they could do to make me look better or just show the entire situation [but don’t],” he claimed.

Blueface (real name Jonathan Porter) was recently ordered to open his wallet and pay the victims of the Las Vegas strip club shooting.
Last week, TMZ reported that the Euphoric Gentleman’s Club — where the shooting took place — is due to receive a check for more than $13 million from the “Thotiana” rapper, per the judge’s orders.
The breakdown of the payments involves $12.6 million in lost revenue, $198,000 in lease damages, and $84,000 in lost wages for salaried employees.
Blueface was previously sentenced to 24 to 60 months in prison over the shooting — but because it is a suspended sentence, those months will contribute to probation served.
As part of the terms of his probation, Blueface is not allowed to be in possession of any alcohol or drugs, and neither is he allowed to be in possession of any weapons.
He is also not allowed to be in the strip corridor, or the downtown corridor, of Las Vegas, unless related to work. And if he violates any terms of his probation, he will be ordered to serve the remainder of his time in prison.
Blueface pleaded guilty to one felony count of discharging a firearm into an occupied vehicle, and one misdemeanor battery charge. He also faced attempted murder charges, but those charges were dismissed as a part of his probation.
