Boosie Badazz is suing the mall security who accused him of assault and battery, saying the man cost him work with his allegedly false allegations.
On August 23, Boosie sued a Mississippi mall security guard named Glen Kerley, after Kerley originally sued Boosie for assault and battery stemming from an incident back on April 9, 2017.
In the newly-filed lawsuit, the rapper accuses Kerley of suing him without a reasonable reason for doing so. He calls the guard’s lawsuit an abuse of the legal process and says it was filed with “malice and/or without probable cause.”
Boosie accuses the man of causing interference with prospective business deals, claiming he has lost income due to Kerley’s lawsuit.
In the original lawsuit, Kerley says he was working as a security guard for Dillard’s department store on the day he claims Boosie assaulted and battered him.
Kerley claims Boosie and his crew were being kicked out of the mall when they attempted to enter the store. The security guard says he tried to escort them to the exit when they became combative and refused to obey the directions.
He says Boosie tried to provoke him into a fight and Kerley was forced to use pepper spray to diffuse the situation. But that didn’t last long as Kerley claims the group began to repeatedly punch him. Kerley says he did not strike Boosie or attempt to fight back.
Eventually, Kerley says he was able to get Lil Boosie outside and when he tried to arrest him, he claims the rapper attacked him, knocked him down and hit and kicked him repeatedly. Kerley claims he was dragged across the cement during the attack and was eventually taken to the hospital.
Kerley sued Boosie for assault, battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, civil conspiracy and negligence. The suit is seeking unspecified damages.
Boosie was the first to sue when he filed suit against Dillard’s department store, the Edgewater Mall and the Biloxi Police Department, claiming a law enforcement officer hurled racial slurs at him and his family, and then pepper sprayed him during the incident.
The city of Biloxi has denied all allegations of wrongdoing and demanded his suit be thrown out.
In their response, they revealed the rapper was arrested in December over the incident. That lawsuit is ongoing.
