The victims who were struck by bullets during Justin Bieber’s 2022 Super Bowl Weekend Afterparty have filed a monster claim for their alleged severe injuries.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the two shooting victims want Bieber and co-defendant Kodak Black to cough up millions in damages.
Justin Bieber Super Bowl Afterparty Shooting Victims Want $31 Million
In a new filing, the alleged victims Mark Schaefer and Adam Rahman, are demanding $31 million to be paid for their injuries, emotional distress, as well as medical bills incurred as a result of the shooting that happened at Bieber’s party.
“Plaintiffs Adam Rahman and Mark Schaefer each claim pain, suffer and inconvenience in the amount of $10,000,000; emotional distress is the amount of $10,000,000; medical expenses in the amount of $500,000; future medical expenses in the amount of $500,000; loss of earnings in the amount of $5,000,000; and loss of future earnings in the amount of $5,000,000.”
It should be noted, that the famous musicians along with the venue are “seeking equitable relief from the City of Los Angeles for any liability.” Recall that the shooting happened in February 2022 outside The Nice Guy in L.A. In other words, they want the city to pay any awarded damages.
As we reported, the two victims filed a lawsuit against the famous artists claiming they were shot outside the party because of Kodak Black. It happened that when the “Wake Up in the Sky” rapper was leaving the party, one of his crew members got attacked by an unidentified assailant, resulting in chaos.
Black, who was also shot, got himself involved in the saga to help out his friend, and shots got fired in the process. The aggrieved victims pointed accusing fingers at the rapper, alleging that he was trying to cause harm and escalate the situation. They also shared the blame with the venue, claiming that their security was incompetent.
The two victims, whom Gloria Allred is representing, spared no one in the lawsuit as they named Bieber, Kodak Black, The Hwood Group, the Revolve Group, The Nice Guy, the City of Los Angeles, the City of West Hollywood, and Los Angeles County for damages.
At the time of the filing, the “No Flockin” rapper’s attorney slammed the lawsuit as baseless, saying, “I have seen a lot of bad complaints in my day. This is the most poorly drafted complaint I have seen in 26 years. I expect Kodak to be dismissed from this suit fairly quickly.”
The lawyer added, “There is zero specificity in the complaint and Ms. Allred groups the defendants all together instead of making specific allegations against each. It’s law school 101. I am embarrassed for Ms. Allred that she actually signed her name to that complaint.”
The case has been going on for over, and both parties have yet to reach a resolution.
Rapper Kodak Black Charged For Possession Of Oxycodone
The whooping $30 million damages claim comes shortly after new details emerged about Black’s headline-making South Florida arrest.
Recall that last month, the “Super Gremlin” artist was arrested in Plantation, Florida for possession of illegal drugs, particularly cocaine. He was booked into the Broward County jail and charged with cocaine possession, improperly parking or stopping a vehicle, and fabricating or tampering with physical evidence.
However, a new filing alleged that the authorities misrepresented the substance found with the rapper, whose real name is Bill Kapri, saying it was oxycodone and not cocaine.
Per reports, Broward County Prosecutors quietly charged Black with Oxycodone possession, which contradicts an affidavit from the arresting officer that stated the “white chunky substance” allegedly found in Black’s possession “field-tested positive on the scene for cocaine.”
The rapper’s lawyer, Bradford Cohen, slammed the misrepresentation as an “abuse of power.” In his words, “The cop says crack cocaine, and it turned out to be oxycodone. I don’t know how an error like that happens. I’ve never seen in my career of 27 years where an officer tested an oxycodone pill, and it came back positive for cocaine. This officer was either grossly neglectful, incompetent or a liar. It’s one of those three.”
However, a spokesperson for the Broward County State Attorney refuted the claims of incompetence or false representation, saying, “Police arrested him on suspected cocaine possession. Our office did not file that charge.”
