Liza Rios, the widow of the late Big Pun, says that rumors the Bronx, New York rapper struck Jay Z around the head with a bottle during an alleged altercation between Roc-A-Fella and Terror Squad camps at a nightclub are simply not true.
The decade-old rumor resurfaced recently when Noreaga appeared on Taxstone’s “Tax Season” podcast and replied “absolutely” when asked if the rumor was indeed true.
“A situation happened at a club night,” Liza Rios explained during a recently published interview with DoggieDiamondsTV. “Both camps were there, [the] Terror Squad camp and Jay Z’s camp, and there was an altercation between the camps. One of those guys from the camp that was affiliated there was an altercation between them. After that situation happened — [and] whatever fizzled out in the club that night whatever — it was another show date and Jay Z was also performing. Pun knew that Jay Z was there [and] because of the altercation between their camps, he stepped up to Jay Z to see if there was any beef or any problems. Pun went in with Cuban [Link] and a few other guys and as fast as they went in, they came out. Squashed any problems and it was all good.”
“So this story about Pun hitting him with a bottle, I don’t know where it came from, I don’t know why they keep bringing it up or keeping it alive, because the truth was [that] it wasn’t the truth,” Rios continued. “If it was true, I’d gladly say, ‘Yeah, he hit him with a bottle’ but that’s not the case. At the end of the day, Pun, as well as myself, we was Jay Z fans… He’s always been a Jay Z fan and that’s it. I would appreciate if whoever keeps telling this story would just lay it down to rest because it’s not true. It never happened, it never happened, it never happened, it never happened.”
