*Tyga is on the lips of a lotta folks today after video of him being literally dragged out of boxing champ Floyd Mayweather‘s 42nd birthday bash on Saturday night by security after a heated altercation, has gone viral.
Video (above) of the wild scene shows the rapper trying to remove his own security guard’s gun from his holster. Fortunately, the guard knew the situation was getting even hotter and made sure the gun never left his holster, so Tyga never actually took possession of the firearm.
Mayweather hosted the birthday bash for guests including Tiffany Hadish and French Montana. But when Tyga arrived on the red carpet at Sunset Room in Hollywood, he got into an altercation with an unknown man.
The rapper was hauled outside in front of cameras as he yelled, “Bro! Chill out!” at a guard who deposits him on the sidewalk.
Video outside the club clearly captured Tyga reaching under the security guard’s jacket and into a holster to grab for his gun. But the guard kept his hand securely on the piece and put it back.
A rep for the event said in a statement:
“The video that has been shared in the press and in the media of Tyga being escorted out of the venue was unfortunate and troubling. Though we are unsure of what exactly caused the altercation, we are certain that Floyd Mayweather and TMT were not involved. Tyga had arrived to the venue around 12:30 am, just 10 minutes before being removed. Security took appropriate measures to deescalate the situation and to do what was in the best interest of everyone’s safety.”
