Former R&B star Johnny Gill is back in the rumor mill this week and for the first time in modern-day history its not for being Eddie Murphy’ secret lover.
[FLASHBACK: Johnny Gil Addresses Those ‘Pesky’ Gay Rumors… ]
Gil hit the tweets yesterday to reveal that he’s hella upset about this latest rumor, stating…
In case you’re wondering what Gill’s twitter rant is all about, he’s apparently upset with media outlets who claim that he was ‘beat up’ by a drunk white man at a Beverly Hills hotel bar.
While the story isn’t that far fetched… Gill claims that it’s totally out of context.
Details + Johnny’s full explanation of the incident below…
Gill has filed suit against the Four Season’s hotel for being a victim of a ‘racial incident,’ but he disputes claims that he ever got a beat down at the bar.
“Can you imagine some old white motherf*cker whippin’ my ass? He got a better chance of Hitler comin’ back!”– Johnny Gill
The extremely neat and tidy soul singer is attempting to set the record straight before media outlets powerdown labtops to enjoy the Labor Day weekend and has released an exclusive interview with EUR Web where he explains the situation in depth.
[Sidebar: the best thing about this whole interview is audio of Johnny Gill cursing like a sailor! But I digress… ]
“A couple of years ago, I was out with friends for dinner and this white guy comes over and he’s plastered and I’m talking with one of my girlfriend’s friend … she’s Caucasian, and he starts making some comments … I looked at him like, ‘you talkin’ to me?’ [then] jumped up to, you know, get in his ass and one of my friends who was at the table jumps up too and he grabs me and pulled me back to not hit this guy … I tripped over a heat lamp at the hotel,” Gill states.
He says he went to the hospital later because his shoulder was hurting and the doctors said his shoulder was “dislocated.”
The singer then contacted the Four Seasons Hotel to relay what happened; and asked them to pay the hospital costs because he had gotten injured on their property. They refused and his lawyer encouraged him to file a lawsuit.
A heat lamp? Really Johnny? I’ve been to Four Seasons many times and I can’t seem to ever spot a dust mite let alone a ‘heat lamp’ just idling on the floor. But whatev…
Look lets make this quick because I got to get my labor day vacay on… Gill obviously filed suit asking for money for his shoulder because of an ‘incident’ of some kind.
Rumor has it that New Edition’s star crooner may have actually caught the beat down he so adamantly denies. But Johnny claims ‘heat lamp’ did it. Personally I think we need to find this heat lamp and get their side of the story.
I still look at J.G. with the sideways stare. I dunno why. But until hear otherwise… I’m siding with the lamp. 😆
Do you think Gill has a case?
What do you think of his explanation?
