Finesse2Tymes Is Being Sued by a Victim's Family for Another Horrific Incident at His Show
This isn't the first time Finesse2Tymes had to deal with a horrific event that happened at one of his shows.
Back in March, three people died and several people were injured following Finesse's concert with GloRilla at the Main Street Armory in Rochester, N.Y. As people were leaving the building, a crowd surge occurred after people were possibly frightened by a sound they believed were gunshots, which caused a stampede by the doorway.
The three people who have died are identified as Rhondesia Belton, a 33-year-old female from Buffalo, N.Y., Aisha Stephens of Syracuse, N.Y., and Brandy Miller of Rochester, N.Y.
The family of one of the victims, Brandy Miller, told TMZ that they are planning to sue GloRilla and Finesse2Tymes, as well as the promoters and the Main Street Armory for the incident.
GloRilla and Finesse had already left the venue before the stampede and neither artist are under criminal investigation for the incident. Both artists have expressed their condolences to the victim's family.
