According to new legal documents, obtained by The Blast, the alleged victim — Jimmy Quivac — is claiming he is owed over $12 million in damages. Quivac filed the document in Los Angeles County Courts, laying out the specific amounts he believed should be paid by the rapper.
In the filing, Jimmy is asking a judge to order Yachty to pay $5 million for “pain, suffering, and inconvenience” another $1 million for “emotional distress” and $14,268 for “medical expenses. But, that’s not all. The alleged fight victim is saying he is owned $1 million for “future medical expenses” and a whopping $5 million for “punitive damages.”
In total, Quivac is asking for $12,014,268.
Lil’ Yachty Allegedly Punched Man Backstage At Rolling Loud
Of course, this doesn’t mean the rapper is going to have to cough up that much dough — but, it is a starting point for the two parties to negotiate a settlement. If not, the two will be heading to trial. As we reported, Jimmy sued the rapper following the incident.
Unfortunately for Lil’ Yachty, some of the alleged beat down was caught on tape. “On December 15, 2019, defendant, Miles Mccollum, aka “Lil Yachty” attacked and severely injured (Jimmy) as he was heading to a concert at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. As a result of his actions, (Jimmy) was harmed and his action was a substantial factor in causing harm,” the lawsuit states.
Reports claim the two were involved in a physical altercation with Yachty and his crew jumping the fan. According to the lawsuit, during the incident, the rapper “suddenly, and without warning, punches (Jimmy) who was attempting to walk away. This caused (him) to fall to the ground. As he was laying on the ground, motionless, (the rapper) and his entourage continued to strike him, stomp him and kick him.”
Rapper Lil’ Yachty Claims It Was All In Self-Defense
Adding, “These actions caused (Jimmy) to fear for his life and suffer serious and permanent personal injury.”
In the video, it’s clear a group of men is striking another who is on the ground. But, according to Yachty’s side of the story — he was leaving the Rolling Loud Festival and Jimmy “shoved him for no reason.” In other words, the fight was following the initial shove and it was self-defense.
He’s suing for assault and battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
Interestingly, Lil Yachty made huge headlines this month after announcing the launch of his frozen pizza line. That’s right, the rapper will now have his own line of frozen delights inside Wal-Mart. For those pizza lovers, Yachty’s Pizzeria includes four unique flavors: Buffalo Style Chicken, Hot Honey Cheese, Pepperoni & Bacon, and Veggie Supreme.
Well, might need that pizza money to pay a few legal bills.
The case is ongoing.
