Blueface is facing more legal trouble after a judge ordered him to pay $13 million to the owner of a Las Vegas strip club that permanently closed, after a shooting involving the rapper in 2022.
District Court Judge Jacob Reynolds ruled the “Thotiana” performer must hand over $13,072,482 in damages to the owner of Euphoric Gentlemen’s Club, according to court documents obtained by the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
Reynolds handed down the order on Saturday, Oct. 21. The decision came after Blueface, 26, was sentenced by a different judge to three years of probation earlier this month in connection with the shooting.
The Los Angeles rapper, born Johnathan Porter, pleaded guilty in July to shooting at a man outside the strip club on Oct. 8, 2022.
Police responded to the scene when a man named Kentabius Traylor flagged down officers and said he was attacked by members of the rapper’s entourage after a verbal dispute at the club. Traylor said the suspects shot at his truck as he drove away.
Clark County District Court Judge Kathleen E. Delaney sentenced Blueface on Oct. 2, 2023. The judge decided the troubled hip-hop star could escape jail time in the case, but warned him if he’s arrested again on a weapons charge, she’ll send him to prison “for a significant period of time.”
Club owner SG Enterprises filed a lawsuit in December, saying Blueface caused the strip club to lose its license and shutter.
The Neighborhood Talk Instagram account posted a statement from club management announcing the business was calling it quits. The statement blamed Blueface and said the rapper brought “gang related activities” to the establishment and should be “put away in court.”
Despite his legal troubles, the rapper proposed to off-on girlfriend Jaidyn Alexis over the weekend.
Video posted on social media showed Blueface getting down on one knee and popping the question in a private suite at an LA Rams game in SoFi Stadium on Sunday, Oct. 22.
Jaidyn cried, cursed, and showed off her ring. The two were high school sweethearts and have two children together.
