Teyana Taylor Involved in Fight With Movie Director

Rapper/singer Teyana Taylor and movie director Jean-Claude La Marre were involved in a physical altercation on the set of his new movie, Gang of Roses 2.

According to TMZ, things turned bloody last weekend when Taylor—who stars in the film along with Amber Rose and Claudia Jordan—asked La Marre if she could be excused from filming to deal with an abscessed tooth. After her requests were repeatedly denied, things reportedly got ugly.

Angry over his decision, Taylor says she started shouting at La Marre, who reacted by pushing her in the face, causing her tooth to bleed.

La Marre, on the other hand, says he was simply defending himself, after Taylor swung at him. Why he didn’t press charges, he tells TMZ, “she’s 20 years old and I’m 40 … kids lash out.”

Taylor, on the other hand, is contemplating legal action against La Marre.

Coincidentally Taylor took to Twitter this morning to shout out her co-stars in the movie.

“@DaRealAmberRose: Great working with u girls! @TEYANATAYLOR @claudiajordan Miss u guys already :-)”–miss yall too! :) (sic),” she wrote.

As of press time it is uncertain if Taylor will still appear in the flick. —Elan Mancini
