Fabolous and Ray J Fight Backstage in Las Vegas
Johnnie WaltersSeptember 19, 2011
Rapper Fabolous and singer Ray J had a fight backstage at the rapper’s concert at The Palms in Las Vegas.
Eyewitnessess said Fabolous beat up Ray J after the singer swung at him just before he was set to hit the stage. Ray J was eventually tossed out and later arrested by Las Vegas police.
Ray J confronted Fabolous about jokes he made on his twitter account. He poked fun at Ray J when he saw him sing “One Wish” in Floyd Mayweather’s living room during an HBO special that aired over the weekend.
Ray J called into a New York radio show to address the rumors. He didn’t detail what happened, but instead bragged about what kind of cars, homes and pools he had. He claimed that Fabolous was running from him and he was going to make Fabolous call the radio show and apologize. Here’s what he said:
“Don’t disrespect me. I will smack you up again fool! N*ggas said Ray J got beat up? I socked that n**ga in the face. All I have to say is if you have Fab’s number, tell him to send a picture of his face right now.
Don’t disrespect me and Floyd like that. I play piano on that muthaf*cking piano every day. That’s my big bro. We grew up together. So if you think I just came over there and sang a song, you got me muthaf**kin twisted. I’m with the money team right now. He’s running from me.
When I seen him, I was with Floyd and 50 and that n*gga said ‘Don’t Touch Me’, and I touched that n***a.
These n*ggas think I sing songs and run around here and do dances and sh*t, I don’t play them games man.
I got three new Rolls Royces outside and I’m tired of being humble with n*ggas. I’m tired of being low key. Now, I’m about to pull my muthaf*cking whips out. I’m about to show ya’ll what my cribs look like, and I’m about to roll with my n*ggas and smack n*ggas up that’s talking sh*t!!”
Listen to the interview here New York’s Power 105.1.
Here are the tweets that Fabolous posted that began the beef:
