The legal situation stems from accusations Twist and accomplices broke into the Los Angeles apartment of Chris’ brother, Kyle Massey, before attacking the actor with brass knuckles and a screwdriver.
Apparently, Massey asked Twist to leave a party being held at the residence, but “The Leak” rapper later returned and the violence ensued.
Twist eventually pled no contest to charges of criminal threats, burglary, grand theft, battery, and two counts of assault with a deadly weapon.
He was sentenced to one year in prison but only served seven and a half weeks.
The $1.5 million court ruling was granted after a brief non-jury trial which Twist did not attend.
