Tony Yayo has been released from jail after being arrested in
50 Cent was allegedly in the passenger side of the SUV when four males jumped out of the vehicle. At least one of the men assaulted the boy, pushing him against the wall. The assailants then jumped back into the car and sped off.
The boy identified Yayo (born Marvin Bernard) to police as his attacker, and that the incident was sparked by the boy wearing a T-shirt bearing the logo of Czar Entertainment, Rosemond’s company.
Cynthia Reed, the mother of the 14-year old reportedly attacked by Yayo, is infuriated that her son would be attacked by “the same artist whose music he listens to.”
“It’s a shame that 50 Cent and Tony Yayo could feel comfortable slapping and physically attacking an innocent 14-year-old minor that they market and promote their records to.,” Reed said in a statement. “This is a cowardly act on my son, who has done nothing to warrant the verbal and physical abuse he received. This issue should not be taken lightly and these men should be looked upon as a serious threat to society, having taken their relentless public rants towards their rivalries to [an extreme] level. This [incident] should be looked [upon] as a step away from child molestation. I seek justice in the form of restoring my son’s dignity and making sure any child can wear whatever they want without fear of bodily injury.”
On a related note, Mike Lighty, brother of 50 Cent’s manager and Violator Management CEO Chris Lighty, was allegedly stabbed outside of the Violator offices just hours before the incident occurred with Rosemond’s son. Lighty is said to have been treated at an area hospital. According to unconfirmed reports, Lighty is recovering from his injuries and has refused to cooperate with a police investigation into the incident.
Apparently, G-Unit would go as far as smacking around a 14-year old child to establish their “gangsta.” Who knows what will happen to the next mother’s teen son or daughter who wears a shirt of some kind to support a favorite rapper?
