Former Young Money Entertainment/Cash Money Records rapper Tyga was forcibly thrown out of a club, The Sunset Room, after a heated altercation during Floyd Mayweather’s 42nd birthday party celebration.
In a video shared by TMZ, Tyga, is seen held by the neck being dragged out of the club by the venues security personell while the rappers attempts to break free are futile. The visibly angry Tyga then tries to grab a gun from the hip of one of his security men who stop him several times.
Tyga then cooled off before leaving in his vehicle. He had only spent ten minutes at the party before being thrown out.
A statement released by Floyd Mayweather’s TMT camp reads:
On behalf of TMT & Wright Productions we cannot adequately express many thanks to the friends, family and media that came out to support Floyd Mayweather’s “Money May Back to the 90s” birthday extravaganza.
The video that has been shared in the press and in the media of Tyga being escorted out of the venue was unfortunate and troubling. Though we are unsure of what exactly caused the altercation, we are certain that Floyd Mayweather and TMT were not involved. Tyga had arrived to the venue around 12:30 am, just 10 minutes before being removed. Security took appropriate measures to deescalate the situation and to do what was in the best interest of everyone’s safety.
