The Man on the Moon has landed… on an unexpected fan’s face. Over the weekend footage of Kid Cudi surfaced online, showing the XXL Freshman alum punching a concertgoer in Vancouver.
According to MTV News, the incident occurred during Cudder’s set at the Commodore Ballroom last Saturday (December 12)—a solo show for the Cleveland rapper, who is currently on tour with Lady Gaga. In the YouTube clip, viewers can see Cudi leaping from the stage and striking a man in the crowd, after a wallet is thrown at him. [Watch Below]
TMZ is reporting that the alleged victim will not be pressing charges. “I’m not upset, I’m not going to be that person,” Michael Sharpe told the gossip site. “I just want to meet him and be like, ‘I’m the guy you punched.’”
According to Sharpe, he wasn’t the one that initially threw something at the G.O.O.D. Music artist. He says it all started when someone behind him originally chucked the wallet onstage. Cudi then threw it back into the audience and Sharpe caught it. He explained that since it wasn’t his, he launched it back and that’s what prompted Cudi to attack him.
