According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Younes is back in court fighting the lawsuit brought by a man named Bennett Sipes.
Bennett is suing Younes, Drake (real name: Aubrey Graham) and Odell Beckham Jr. over an alleged assault that went down at Delilah nightclub on March 24, 2018.
In the lawsuit, Bennett said Younes along with members of Drake and Odell’s entourage assaulted him inside the club. He was at the club to visit his girlfriend, Sommer Ray, who was in the VIP section talking to Drake, OBJ, and Younes.
Bennett says when he approached the VIP section an argument broke out between him and the three men. The plaintiff claims as he left the VIP he “witnessed Defendant Drake signaling to his private security a hand gesture of ‘throat slash,’ after he pointed at Plaintiff. Plaintiff understood this to be some type of physical threat towards himself.” As he walked to the bathroom, Bennett claims Younes and members of the others entourages proceeded to “push, shove, kick and repeatedly punch Plaintiff in the face and body.”
Drake and Odell have denied all allegations of wrongdoing. Drake pointed to security footage saying Kourtney’s boyfriend was the only involved in the assault NOT him.
Younes asked for the lawsuit to be dismissed saying his actions were made in self-defense.
In newly filed documents, Younes backs up Drake in the case saying he is not sure why the rapper or Odell are defendants. His attorney wrote, “Celebrities were passive observers, yet somehow made it in as Defendants. Defendant YOUNES BENDJIMA won the fight, but was not the aggressor, Plaintiff was, and it was mutual combat (with consent of Plaintiff). Also has affirmative defense for self-defense, tried to ignore Plaintiff, no avail.”
The case is headed to trial but no date has been scheduled.
Drake recently scored a victory in a separate $100,000 lawsuit.
