Lil Tjay Appears to Be Involved in Fight Following Concert – Watch
UPDATE (Nov. 14):
Lil Tjay is denying he was the victim of an attempted jewelry snatching, which began circulating when a huge fight he recently appeared to be involved in made its rounds on the internet.
On Saturday night (Nov. 13), the Bronx, N.Y. rapper hopped on his Instagram Story to set the record straight. Donning a bunch of jewelry while riding in the back of a Rolls-Royce, Tjay shoots down the internet theory. "If a nigga really tried to take my chain, it would have been a lot of those right there," he says while police cruisers coincidentally ride by in the opposite direction. "I ain't gon' lie."
Check out the clip below.
It looks like Lil TJay may have gotten into a scuffle following a recent show in Europe.
Tjay is currently on the European leg of his Destined 2 Win Tour. Last night (Nov. 12), he had a show at O2 Arena in London. It appears the rapper and his team got into a fight following the show. Video has surfaced that shows several people brawling in the middle of the street. People who appear to be security or police officers can be seen trying to break up the melee to no avail.
At the end of the clip, Tjay is seen being pulled out of the fray by members of his team. "Don't touch me," he yells while being held back. It is unclear what started the fight. There is speculation that someone tried to snatch the "Run It Up" rhymer's jewelry.
He has four dates left in his tour, which started back in September.
Lil Tjay has had a big year. He released his Destined 2 Win album in April, which peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard 200 chart. However, prior to that, he had two run-ins with the law. Last December, he was arrested on charges of criminal possession of a weapon, marijuana possession and grand larceny after police pulled over a car the Bronx rapper was riding in and discovered a gun and weed. The same month, he was detained by police during a video shoot and searched.
