Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s triumphant win this past weekend wasn’t the only fight that rocked Sin City. Rapper Fabolous and singer Ray J reportedly got into it backstage at the Palms just before Fab was set to hit the stage. According to website Bossip, Ray J set things off when he punched the Brooklyn rapper in the face following a joke Fab made about the singer over social network Twitter.
“Nah but Floyd saying we havin a concert in my living room & the camera cuts to Ray J singing “One Wish” on the piano had me in tears!!” Fabolous tweeted on Sept. 17th, allegedly the center of Ray J’s beef. “Get it..? Ray J concert in the living room!! *Lil Wayne voice*”
Eyewitnesses on the scene say the fight didn’t end so well with Fabolous getting the best of Ray J who was eventually tossed from out the luxurious Palms hotel then later detained by Las Vegas cops.
Ray J himself confirmed half of the reports, that he was kicked out of the Palms and arrested following the incident. A number of celebrities were on hand for the incident including 50 Cent, Mayweather, Diddy and comedian Kevin Hart.
Earlier this morning Ray J phoned in to New York City’s Power 105 “Breakfast Club” show with DJ Envy, Charmalagne the God and Angela Yee.
“Ni–as sayin Ray J got beat up? I’ll sock that ni–a in his face again my ni–a.” All i’m saying if you got Fabs number tell that ni–a to send a picture of his face right now.”
During the conversation with the morning hosts Ray J confirmed that his issue with Fab stemmed from a few jokes the rapper sent his way that he didn’t find quite funny. In a recent episode of HBO’s “24/7″ show documenting the road to Mayweather’s fight against Ortiz, in one scene Ray J is playing the piano in the champ’s living room singing his song “One Wish.”
“Don’t disrespect me and Floyd like that” Ray J continued raging. “I play piano on that muthaf–kin piano every day, thats my big brother, ni–a we grew up together. So if you think that I just came over there and sang a song, ni–a you got me twisted. Ni–a im over there everyday.”
Following the fight Fabolous went on to perform at the palms alongside LOX rappers Jadakiss and Styles P.
