Busta Rhymes is being sued by a Los Angeles woman who claims the rapper threw a glass at her at a restaurant in Beverly Hills this summer.
According to the RadarOnline.com, Devin Cooper and another person were patrons at the Mr. Chow restaurant in Beverly Hills in June, where they were seated at a table next to Busta (real name: Trevor Smith).
She then claims a woman sitting next to the rapper, whom he said was his sister, began yelling at her that she was “too close to their table”. So to avoid conflict, Cooper says she attempted to reposition her chair.
When the Busta’s sister entourage continued to make comments, Cooper claims she asked her to please calm down. That’s when Rhymes allegedly began yelling at Cooper, “that’s my sister, that’s my blood!”
In the lawsuit, Cooper claims she tried to carry on with her dinner and ignore Rhymes increasingly threatening conduct, but claims Rhymes threw a drinking glass at her, missing her by mere inches.
Cooper says she was “shocked and afraid for her safety” and both she and her companion left the restaurant.
Cooper is suing for assault and battery, and is seeking $250,000 in damages.
