Offset Faces Lawsuit After Alleged Security Guard Assault
Offset is facing some legal troubles as he allegedly assaulted a security guard at ComplexCon back in 2021. Daveon Clark is suing the Migos member for assault, battery, negligence, and international infliction of emotional distress after a fight that went down initially involving Clark and rapper YRN Murk, according to Radar Online. YRN Murk is also named in the lawsuit.
Clark was working as a private security guard and claims after YRN Murk was denied entry to the event, he spat on him. Additionally, he claimed he “suffered serious physical injuries after numerous physical attacks by various individuals.” Other security guards aided Clark by pushing YRN Murk back. Clark says as he was trying to defend himself, Offset “approached him and struck him.”
Clark claims that “Offset’s attack was then quickly followed by a punch from” another man who has not been identified.
Offset previously claimed he was not in the actual fight but was trying to make peace by “breaking up the fight.”
“I wasn’t fighting at ComplexCon,” he declared to Complex at the time. “I stepped in to break up a fight caused by a booth’s security,” he said. “The story is false and overshadows why I’m a regular at ComplexCon.”
He went on to say that he enjoys going to ComplexCon to “support the culture,” including designers and brands who are on the rise.
Offset Drops Set It Off
While Offset has not commented recently on the ComplexCon lawsuit, he has been active as he just dropped his second solo project, Set It Off. The 21-track album featured guest appearances from his wife Cardi B, Chlöe Bailey, Latto, Future, Travis Scott, and more. Prior to the album drop, he released singles “5 4 3 2 1,” “Code,” featuring Moneybagg Yo, “Jealousy,” featuring his wife Cardi B, and “Fan.” The two latter songs are on Set It Off. The album debuted at No. 5 on the Billboard 200.
