Eminem is facing accusations from a man who claims the MC punched him four or
five times at a Detroit strip club, leaving him with a knoton the side of
man, identified as Miad J., told WXYZ TV that Eminem assaulted him in the men's
room at about 1 a.m. Wednesday (July 12) at Cheetah's strip club on 8 Mile Road.The
rapper was at the club with an entourage, according to witnesses.The
alleged incident began when a man started talking to Eminem, who was using
a urinal next to Miad. The man was then told to be quiet by one of rhymesayer's
bodyguards, prompting Miad to ask the bodyguard to ease up on the man."He
kept on going and I said ' The guys not saying nothing, he's just talking to him,
he's not saying anything."The
alleged assault soon occurred afterward."Eminem
got done and boom," Miad said Thursday (July 13). "He started swinging.
I wasn't even expecting it. I was just minding my own business, taking a leak."
Miad said he saw Eminem strike him.Miad
further stated that Eminem left the club with his bodyguards, who were thrown
out of Cheetah's by the club's bouncers after the lyricist punched him. As the
group left, witnesses say they saw rapper Trick Trick pulling out a gun. Although
he didn't point the gun at anyone, observers outside the club noticed the weapon."How
can somebody hit you for saying nothing to you and just telling a guy that he's
not doing nothing?" Miad told reporters.Authorities
investigating the incident will present their case to the prosecutor's office for
possible charges once they hear Eminem's version of what happened.Neither
those from Eminem's camp or Cheetah's would comment Thursday on the alleged incident.
