“[Rocky] stopped in front of Ms. Wade, turned around, drew back his arm, and struck Ms. Wade forcefully with an open hand on the left side of her face. Mr. Mayers struck Ms. Wade with such force that she was knocked to the ground and became momentarily disoriented,” states the suit.
Wade also alleges members of Rocky’s entourage shoved her. She is suing those individuals as well as Live Nation Entertainment, Roc Nation, and John Doe security.
The Rockledge, Pennsylvania native filed the lawsuit in federal court. Wade is seeking $75,000 for physical injuries and emotional distress.
The Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office investigated the incident at the time of the event but decided not to further pursue criminal charges against Rocky.
