A new video from TMZ has surfaced showing 50 Cent punching a female fan during a recent performance with The LOX during their “Filthy America…It’s Beautiful” tour in Baltimore on Saturday. The rapper was onstage and after extending his hand to greet the fans in the front row, he was nearly pulled off the stage by a female fan.
In retaliation to the unexpected threat, 50 Cent is seen throwing a punch at the woman. It seems that once he realized the reality of the situation he regretted the instinct as he later told one of his crew members to bring her onstage. This seems to be enough of an apology for the fan as she later was seen twerking onstage while the rapper carried on with his performance. A spokeswoman for the Baltimore Police Department told the Baltimore Sun they are not investigating the incident because they haven’t received a complaint related to it.
In 2004, 50 Cent narrowly avoided jail time in Massachusetts after accepting a plea deal for a somewhat similar incident where he allegedly jumped into a crowd to confront an audience member after they threw a water bottle at him, according to reports. In the fight that ensued three women were reportedly injured from the chaotic scene.
