A woman claims she was violently assaulted at a Naughty By Nature concert that left her with a laceration to her head.
According to court documents obtained by Radar, a woman named Selene Ramirez is suing music event company Goldenvoice for negligence.
Ramirez says she attended a special performance by the legendary hip hop group put together by the Goldenvoice on February 13, 2020. The show was held at the Novo on Olympic Blvd in Los Angeles.
The woman says she purchased “premium” tickets but once she arrived at 8 pm was told it was standing only. She said the crowd was extremely “unruly.”
"Approximately 23 minutes later, due to Defendants’ lax and inadequate security procedures, a fight broke out in the crowd around Plaintiff. After security failed to respond, the situation escalated," the suit read.
Ramirez says one concertgoer grabbed her hair and slammed her to the ground. As a result, the plaintiff says she “sustained serious injuries” including “a significant laceration to her head.”
The alleged victim is blaming the organizers of the event for not providing enough security to keep the crowd in check. “Defendants, and each of them, breached their duty to Plaintiff by failing to reasonably managing, security, and/or control the subject event such that foreseeable criminal activity occurred against Plaintiff.”
The suit says Ramirez is dealing with a ton of medical issues from the incident. Her lawyer says she has “injuries to her body and limb” and needs money for “necessary medical expenses.”
Ramirez claims she has lost money from being unable to work and is demanding unspecified damages.
Goldenvoice has yet to respond to the case. Naughty by Nature is not a named defendant. The band, who has been around since 1986, consists of Treach (real name: Anthony Criss), Vin Rock (real name: Vincent Brown) and DJ Kay Gee (real name: Keir Lamont Gist).
The band members have had a rollercoaster relationship with them breaking up in 2002. They eventually worked out their issues and reunited in 2006. In 2019, the experienced a bit of a comeback with their success Mixtape Tour which featured Salt-N-Pepa, Debbie Gibson and New Kids On The Block.
