The Breakfast Club co-host spoke with TMZ on Friday (September 1) to explain his take on the situation. According to him, Fif didn’t mean to bop the victim in the face.
“I haven’t spoken to him,” he told the outlet. “But, yeah, it’s a terrible situation. There’s no way in hell. I mean, 50. You know, everybody sees Fif as this big bully online, but he’s like, the nicest and most caring person.”
He continued: “I know it was probably an accident. I know it was an accident. So, I mean, things happen. […] 50 wasn’t aiming for her. And, we’ve seen 50 throw that first pitch at that Major League Baseball game. And we know how crazy he throws. So I know 50 is very remorseful.”

According to a TMZ report on Thursday (August 31), the woman who was hit – Power 106 radio host Bryhana Monegain – filed a police report the night of the incident on Wednesday (August 30). Law enforcement sources told the outlet they believe 50 threw the mic at his crew in the production area and hit the victim.
Monegain reportedly told cops 50 Cent looked directly at her before throwing the mic, so she believes the rapper knew she was there.
In a statement, 50’s lawyer Scott Leemon told the outlet: “Let’s be very clear, as I told LAPD this afternoon, my client Curtis (AKA 50 Cent) would never intentionally strike anyone with a microphone. Anyone saying something different doesn’t have all the facts and is misinformed.”
50 performed at Los Angeles’ Crypto.com Arena on Wednesday (August 30) as part of his Final Lap Tour. The Queens native grew frustrated at one point as he kept getting handed broken microphones.
In a video and series of photos captured by The Neighborhood Talk, the Queens, New York native could be seen growing agitated by the technical difficulties as YG performed on stage next to him.
On two separate occasions, 50 aggressively hurled the broken mics into the crowd – one of which hit the radio personality.
