A rep for the L.A. nightspot says the brawl was instigated by an "angry on-looker" and a "rogue security officer." The rappers were not "directly involved."
T.I. and Game were not "directly involved" in the bloody brawl-turned-LAPD standoff that took place Wednesday at the Supperclub Los Angeles, a rep for the popular nightspot said via a statement to BET.com.
"An unfortunate escalation between an angry on-looker who was denied entry to Supperclub, and a rogue security officer who took matters too far, led to an untenable altercation," the rep explained.
Tip and Game were attending the club, but had no parts in what ultimately led to a police wall of police cars and more than a dozen officers wielding billy clubs. "Although T.I. and Game were in the parking lot during this time, they were not directly involved with this incident."
The events that took place that night, the rep described, were "severely disheartening, leaving our company and organization frustrated, and our Hollywood neighbors saddened."
To begin healing, the rep assured, the contract between the Supperclub and the security company — whose employee beat the "angry on-looker" — will not be renewed. "The third-party security company that was hired for this outside promotional event is not a part of Supperclub Los Angeles, and will never be booked by Supperclub, or the venue's outside promotional vendors again."
Tip and Game still have yet to comment, but Game did retweet a link to the statement.
