R&B crooner Ne-Yo has finally opened up and talks about the infamous Louis Vuitton brawl that took place just before Christmas….
Ne-Yo recently took to the airwaves to talk about the scuffle between his manager JaVogn Smith and Dipset Capo Jim Jones in a Louis Vuitton store in Manhattan, NY.
According to Ne-Yo, he was shopping for Christmas gifts with Vogn, who is the younger brother to Jay-z’s right-hand man, Tyran “Ty Ty” Smith – when Jones walked into the store with two of his friends. The Harlem rep is known for his public rivalry with Hov.
“I guess Jim Jones and Vogn have had drama in the past or whatever so Vaughn taps me on the shoulder like ,‘Unh look who just walked in here,’” Ne-Yo told popular radio personality Big Boy on Wednesday (Feb. 4). “So I turn and I see Jim, [and he] bee lines straight for us. And they get to exchanging words you know back and forth, back and forth.”
The singer said at first the beef was only verbal but soon turned physical after Vogn felt disrespected. “So Jim Jones wasn’t necessarily trying to hurt nobody he was more trying to embarrass, trying to humiliate Vogn,” Ne-Yo explained. “And Vogn being who he is, Vogn wasn’t going for that. So at one point it escalated to where Jim Jones pulled out his cell phone and started recording, put the phone right in Vogn face, talking ‘bout ‘You a punk, you a this you, you a that,’ recording it on some I’m gonna put this on YouTube type. Vogn at that point couldn’t take anymore, smacked the phone outta Jim’s hand. [And] they got to wrestling on the floor in the Louis store.”
Ne-Yo claimed the two men with Jones also got involved in the brawl, kicking his manager whenever they had an opportunity. Continue Reading…
Now you all know how much I adore my Jim Jim and I will not hear a bad word said against him, but if Ne-Yo is to be believed then this isn’t a good look Jim. Your behaviour was unbelievably childish.
Black men arguing and rolling around on the floor in the Louis V store. Embarassing! Can you all imagine the scene? (smh). The staff must have been terrified.
But it would be fair for us to remember that this is Ne-Yo’s version of events. We still have not heard Jim’s version of events yet……..
