Blueface now owes over $14 million to a Las Vegas club owner following a 2022 shooting incident that saw the business forced into closure.
In October 2022, the “Thotiana” rapper was involved in a shooting at the Euphoria Gentlemen’s Club situated on the Las Vegas Strip, which resulted in one man being injured.
The controversial rapper (real name Johnathan Porter) was originally ordered to pay $13 million to the club to cover lost revenue, lease charges and lost wages.
According to TMZ, the sum has now grown to $14,386,164.23 due to Blueface’s failure to pay the damages and additional interest being added to the amount.
Following the shooting, the Los Angeles native was condemned by the club owner after it was announced that Euphoria would close. “Unfortunately mr @bluefasebabyy decided to bring decided to bring gang related activities to our establishment & put all of our girls out of business & ruined the #1 urban spot in Las Vegas,” the owner wrote on Instagram.
“@euphoric_lasvegas was a spot for everyone to have fun & everyone super enjoyed it, but as everyone say, it’s always the Blacks that can’t [have] nothing … Mr. @bluefasebabyy we have lawyered up & make 100% sure that he either spends the rest of his life in prison, or he is going to pay us until the day he leaves this earth.”
Blueface was originally charged with attempted murder over the incident, but he later accepted a plea deal which saw the charges reduced to battery and discharging a firearm.
He avoided any jail time but was sentenced to three years probation and banned from being in possession of drugs, alcohol and weapons and is not allowed to be in Las Vegas unless it is for work.
Violation of these terms would see him serve the rest of his sentence in prison.
