Oakland rapper Too $hort has been presented with a lawsuit by a woman who claims he inappropriately touched her during a concert in March. He allegedly made vulgar comments at 41-year-old Kenya Winston during a performance at Yoshi’s Jazz Club in San Francisco before going off stage and grabbing her breasts.


According to the San Francisco Gate, Winston filed a police report against him four days later, but no charges were brought against Too $hort. Yoshi’s has also been named in the suit for negligence.


"Ms. Winston is a hardworking mother who just wanted to treat herself to a fun night out," says Daniel Dean, Winston’s attorney. "What Too did was reprehensible and our goal is to hold him accountable."
