Ne-Yo Speaks On Manager’s Scuffle With The Capo, “Jim Jones Wasn’t Necessarily Trying To Hurt Nobody, He Was More Trying To Embarrass”

Ne-Yo recently took to the airwaves to talk about the scuffle between his manager JaVogn Smith and Dipset Capo Jim Jones in a Louis Vuitton store in Manhattan, NY.

According to Ne-Yo, he was shopping for Christmas gifts with Vogn, who is the younger brother to Jay-z’s right-hand man, Tyran “Ty Ty” Smith – when Jones walked into the store with two of his friends. The Harlem rep is known for his public rivalry with Hov.

“I guess Jim Jones and Vogn have had drama in the past or whatever so Vaughn taps me on the shoulder like ,‘Unh look who just walked in here,’” Ne-Yo told popular radio personality Big Boy on Wednesday (Feb. 4). “So I turn and I see Jim, [and he] bee lines straight for us. And they get to exchanging words you know back and forth, back and forth.” [Watch Below]

The singer said at first the beef was only verbal but soon turned physical after Vogn felt disrespected. “So Jim Jones wasn’t necessarily trying to hurt nobody he was more trying to embarrass, trying to humiliate Vogn,” Ne-Yo explained. “And Vogn being who he is, Vogn wasn’t going for that. So at one point it escalated to where Jim Jones pulled out his cell phone and started recording, put the phone right in Vogn face, talking ‘bout ‘You a punk, you a this you, you a that,’ recording it on some I’m gonna put this on YouTube type. Vogn at that point couldn’t take anymore, smacked the phone outta Jim’s hand. [And] they got to wrestling on the floor in the Louis store.”

Ne-Yo claimed the two men with Jones also got involved in the brawl, kicking his manager whenever they had an opportunity.

As XXLmag.com previously reported, Jones pleaded innocent earlier this week in Manhattan Criminal Court to misdemeanor assault charges in the case. He was released without having to post any bail and is expected back in court on March 24.

In addition to the criminal charges, Smith also filed a $7 million lawsuit against the “Pop Champagne” rapper for the damages suffered during the altercation. – Elan Mancini

    I have to say, while checking through 100′s of blogs each week, the theme of this blog is different (for all the right reasons). If you don’t mind me asking, what’s the name of this theme or would it be a custom made affair? It’s significantly better than the themes I use for some of my blogs ;-)
