Gucci Mane & Foogiano Named In Wrongful Death Suit

Gucci Mane And Foogiano Named In Suit Over Club Shooting

Looks like Gucci is headed to court again, this time with 1017 artist Foogiano.

Gucci Mane and 1017 Records protegé, Foogiano, have been named in a wrongful death lawsuit. The suit was filed by the estate of Mykala Bell, who was shot and killed during a Foogiano birthday concert in Greenville, SC on July, 5. 51-year-old bouncer Clarence Johnson also died in the “gang-related” crossfire, and eight others were injured.

According to the Associated Press, Athens, GA native Jarquez Kezavion Cooper, 22, was charged for several counts of murder and attempted murder in connection with the shooting. While authorities did not originally believe Foogiano was associated with the gunfire, the new suit drags him into the case for allowing in “dangerous persons” with “deadly weapons.”

The suit also includes Gucci Mane, purely for association with the concert. “Defendant Radric Delantic Davis a/k/a Gucci Mane (‘Defendant Gucci Mane’) is believed to be a promoter or promotion company organized and existing under the laws of one of the States of the United States and was conducting business within Greenville County, South Carolina, and advertising and promoting an event at Lavish Lounge on July 4-5, 2020 featuring Defendant Brown.”

Cooper, the club owner, and nearly a dozen other unspecified “owners, managers, operators, independent contractors, and/or security companies” are also named in the suit for failing to provide adequate surveillance and security, “knowingly subjecting invitees of the premises to an unreasonable risk of serious physical harm” and “permitting criminal activity,” among other allegations.

Foogiano released a statement the day after the incident saying, “My biggest condolences to the girl and her family. I ain’t going to blame myself for something that I didn’t cause, I never will. But, I respect y’all’s opinions and how y’all feel. She lost her life for nothing. But I did not take her life. Foogiano ain’t shoot nobody.”
