Things Got a Little Scrappy After Tyga’s Cruise Ship Performance

His hype man and another musician got in a brawl this weekend.

Published March 15, 2016

Things escalated quickly this weekend following Tyga’s performance aboard the Inception cruise ship, with a fight breaking out in between scheduled acts (March 12).

As reported by TMZ, sources say that Tyga was more than an hour late for his time on stage, which in turn lead to EDM trio Cash Cash’s set being pushed back. Following this delay in production and schedules, members of Cash Cash was allegedly found unplugging the gear belonging to Tyga’s hype man, DJ S.B., when the night turned ugly.

It’s a little bit up in the air as to who started what, but as a photo that surfaced from the weekend shows, some serious damage was done. Jean Paul Makhlouf, who allegedly was the first to take the verbal altercation to a physical level, suffered from a concussion, injured kidney and several bruises. As a result of the mess, Cash Cash was unable to perform.

As it stands now, there’s isn’t a lawsuit in the picture, but that could always change.

TMZ also shares that Tyga himself had nothing to do with the fight and had already cleared the stage by the time the punches were thrown. is your No. 1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
