"You're too close, man!"
One of 2 Chainz’ bodyguards was arrested for slugging a cameraman in New York.
According to Page Six, Mr. Two Necklace was on his way to a performance at The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon when a freelance photog walked up and started getting a few pictures.
The gossip site said that Chainz was chilling in the wheelchair he’s used to get around since breaking his leg this summer. When the 64-year-old photographer got a little too click-happy, Chainz bodyguard Rory Smith decked him.
The photographer fell to the ground and Smith took off. However, the authorites caught up with the Georgia native and charged him with misdemeanor assault.
It’s the second time in recent weeks that Chainz has been caught up in a minor legal scuffle. Chainz allegedly dipped out on paying off a luxury vehicle. Via our previous reporting:
“According to TMZ, Chainz and the company agreed to a price of $262,212, provided they could send the luxury convertible to him. Chainz agreed and paid them most of the amount, but apparently trailed off before completing the full payment.
The gossip website says that Chainz owed another $18,317 but when the broker got in touch with the rapper to finish paying off the balance, he gave them a hearty ‘nah.’ Now they’re suing for the balance plus interest.”
And Chainz has been snared up in beefs unexpectedly, even if the former ones didn’t turn violent. He said he was a fan of Remy Ma even though Nicki Minaj used a Chainz song as a jumping off point to trash the rapper:
“We ran up on each other… Papoose and Remy. But it was all good vibes. I rock with Remy and Papoose. Me and Remy were talking about doing something before all of this happened. Papoose dapped me down. She was like ‘I don’t rock with Tity Boi no more.’ She didn’t say it like that. She was like ‘I don’t f**k with him.’ She was in my face and i was like ‘I love you though.”
Chainz said that the Nicki diss came as a surprise to him.
“I sent her a song. This is what the song apparently made her say or do. I originally only asked Nicki for a hook. So for her to do more than a hook, I wasn’t going to come back and say ‘You doing too much.’ I was very appreciative of it,” he said.
As for some trouble that 2 Chainz actually had say over, Chainz caused a bit of a stir in his hometown of Atlanta. He painted a house bright pink to echo the cover of his most recent album Pretty Girls Like Trap Music and it upset neighborhood residents.
The people around the house complained about the junk car installations around the building, the traffic that the house drew and the people who came by to gawk.
While the bright pink cars that were parked on the lawn were towed away, the pink house remained to bother the neightborhood. Residents claimed that the whole installation was harmful for businesses in the neighborhood.
