The entire incident was caught on video, beginning inside the club when Tyga can be seen getting manhandled by a security guard from the club and dragged outside. It’s unclear what led to the incident inside the club.
Once outside, another security guard steps in to calm the rapper down (based on their interactions, it appears the second guard works for Tyga). The security guard can be seen talking to him in an effort to de-escalate the situation.
At one point during their conversation, Tyga can be seen reaching into the guy’s pocket to try and remove the security guard’s gun, but the guy puts a stop to it.
The “Taste” rapper eventually gives up and ends up running down the street to his car, where the security guard and a few friends appear to be talking him out of returning to the club.
Eventually, he gets into an SUV and drives away.
The LAPD-Hollywood Division tells The Blast they were not called to the scene.
A rep for the event said in a statement, “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.”
