Ray J & Fabolous Involved in Fight in Las Vegas [Audio]
Floyd Mayweather and Victor Ortiz weren’t the only ones that exchanged blows over the weekend. Ray J and Fabolous reportedly got into an altercation following the high profile boxing bout at an after party at the Palms Hotel in Las Vegas on Sunday morning (September 18).
While Fabolous has yet to detail his account of the incident, an angry Ray J called into New York radio station Power 105.1 FM this morning, and told his side of the story to The Breakfast Club hosts, Charlamagne tha God, Angela Yee and DJ Envy.
“Niggas saying Ray J got beat up,” he said, during a nine-minute tirade. “I socked that nigga in the face. “
Apparently, the situation stemmed from a series of tweets that Fab posted on his Twitter account poking fun at the singer’s appearance on the HBO show, 24/7, building up to Saturday’s night’s Mayweather/Ortiz fight.
“Don’t disrespect me and Floyd like that,” Ray J said, explaining why Fab’s tweets angered him. “I play piano in [his crib] every day. That’s my big bro, we grew up together. So if you think I just came over there and played a song you got it muthafuckin' twisted. I’m always over there.”
Ray J claims he confronted the Brooklyn rapper when he saw him at the after-party. “When I seen [Fabolous] I was with Floyd and 50 [Cent] and [Fab] tried to say ‘Don’t touch me’ and I touched that nigga,” he boasted. “Straight up, I’m not playin’ with him.” Ray J alleges that Fab never returned any blows, but varying comments on Twitter tell a different story.
Meanwhile, the clash resulted in the crooner getting escorted from the party in handcuffs, but it is uncertain if he was charged with any crime.
As of press time, the Def Jam star has yet to return XXL’s requests for comment.
