Earlier this year, we reported the YG was arrested for his involvement in a robbery that took place in Las Vegas in May. The “Big Bank” rapper turned himself in to authorities soon after being accused, and bonded out for $20,000. Allegedly, video footage captures YG snatching the gold chain off of Benjamin Naderi at the hotel and casino. Naderi claimed that he saw YG at The Cosmopolitan Hotel Las Vegas when he approached him for a picture. He continued on to claim that YG refused the picture, and instructed his crew to assault Naderi and rob him of his chain. Naderi sued both the rapper and The Cosmopolitan, but now, the hotel is desperately trying to remove themselves from the situation.
According to The Blast, The Cosmopolitan Hotel Las Vegas denies any wrongdoing connected with the assault and robbery. Naderi is stating that the hotel’s lax security and carelessness are partially responsible for his predicament, but The Cosmopolitan says it isn’t their fault. The hotel says Naderi was being negligent and careless on the night of the assault, and that they have no control over third parties’ actions, which would include YG. The criminal case is still ongoing. Naderi is asking for over $250,000 in damages.
