Migos’ Offset is demanding to be let out of a lawsuit accusing him of orchestrating an assault with Cardi B, and accuses the man suing them of trying to shake him down for money.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Offset (real name; Kiari Cephus) is pleading with a judge to throw out a default judgment that was entered against him.
Last year, an autograph seeker named Giovanni Arnold sued Cardi B and Offset over an alleged assault that went down outside a New York hotel in May 2018. He accused them of orchestrating his beatdown after he asked for Cardi’s autograph. Arnold claimed that on May 5, following the Met Gala in New York, he was attacked by three of the couple’s bodyguards. He claims he ended up having to go to the hospital for his alleged face, neck, back and body injuries and sued seeking unspecified damages. Cardi has denied all allegations of wrongdoing and demanded the lawsuit be thrown out.
