Speaking to TMZ, show creator Rip Micheals said he saw the assault go down.
“At this point, we have to proceed without him because we want to make sure everybody in that audience has a great time and great feeling,” Micheals said. “There was no fight, [Alsina] was sucker-punched by Tory Lanez. It was more of like an assault type-deal.”
The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office said they are investigating the alleged crime.
“We are aware of the allegations that the defendant attacked artist August Alsina and are investigating these claims,” the D.A.’s office said. “The allegations are serious and will be thoroughly examined.”
