UPDATE (Aug. 31):
50 Cent‘s attorney Scott Leemon has released the following statement to XXL in concern to 50 unintentionally striking someone with a mic during his Los Angeles concert on Wednesday night (Aug. 30).
“Let’s be very clear, as I told LAPD this afternoon, my client Curtis would never intentionally strike anyone with a microphone,” the statement reads. “Anyone saying something different doesn’t have all the facts and is misinformed.”
ORIGINAL STORY (Aug. 31):
50 Cent might be in some legal trouble after throwing a mic into the crowd that hit someone during Fif’s concert last night in Los Angeles.
On Wednesday night (Aug. 30), 50 Cent’s The Final Lap Tour stopped in Los Angeles for a show at Crypto.com Arena. During the show, Fif brought out Chris Brown, Nas, YG and others. During YG’s set, a fan captured video of 50 having issues with his microphone. In the video below, YG is performing while Fif is on the side of the stage appearing to deal with some mic malfunction issues. 50 Cent is handed two different microphones on separate occasions. The first one he tosses. The MC is then given another new mic and throws the old one into the crowd in frustration.

On Thursday (Aug. 31), TMZ reported that the person who was hit with the mic has filed a police report. Police tell the celebrity news site that 50 was intending to throw the mic at his production crew but missed and hit the female fan. The victim reportedly suffered a laceration to her head and was taken to a local hospital where she was treated for her injury.
XXL has reached out to the Los Angeles Police Department and 50 Cent’s team for comment.
On Aug. 31, gossip blog The Neighborhood Talk uploaded exclusive photos on Instagram that revealed the woman who got hurt during Fif’s mic-throwing incident. According to the caption of the post below, Power 106 radio host Bryhana Monegain was the person who got struck by the rapper’s microphone.
In the pictures, Bryhana can be seen with a serious bruise on her forehead and blood on her face. The media personality also told the blog site that 50 Cent saw her before the unfortunate incident and supposedly attempted to throw the microphone at his crew. Despite this, Monegain has still filed a police report against him.
