WOMAN ACCUSES MIGOS RAPPER, TAKEOFF OF RAPE
A new civil lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court, on Wednesday, August 5, was filed against rapper Kirshnik Khari Ball, popularly known as Takeoff, of the hip-hop group Migos, accusing him of raping a woman at a party.
The woman, identified as Jane Doe, filed the lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court, claiming that the incident happened on June 22 at a party in Encino, California.
Doe said she was invited to the party by DJ Daryl “Durel” McPherson, a backup performer of Migos.
She claimed that the “Walk it Talk it” rapper offered her marijuana but she declined.
The lawsuit said, after Takeoff ran into Doe and Durel in a staircase, the rapper followed the plaintiff into an upstairs bedroom, where he raped her.
The woman went to a hospital the same day, and staff observed “physical evidence of forceful rape” and notified the LAPD.
Neama Rahmani, the plaintiff’s attorney, in a statement, said, “Our client is terrified, she has already been victimized because of the incident and continues to be victimized because Takeoff is a free man and has yet to be arrested. We hope that law enforcement pursues its investigation more aggressively, so she can receive the criminal justice she deserves.”
The woman is suing Takeoff for sexual battery, battery, assault, false imprisonment, intentional infliction of emotional distress and negligent infliction of emotional distress, among other causes of action.
