AceShowbiz - Ja Rule and Irv Gotti just wanted to have some fun at Sound of Brazil nightclub in New York City on Thursday, July 18. But instead of hanging out with other club-goers and enjoying the music, the two got caught in a brawl and it was all captured on camera.
In a video taken from the incident, Rule and Gotti were seen pushing and shoving another man, looking clearly angry. Someone who appeared to be a security guard started yelling for everyone to calm down to no avail as the three didn't look like they wanted to end their fight anytime soon.
It's unclear what caused the fight, though sources alleged that someone uttered some disrespectful words towards Rule and that infuriated him and Gotti. Both of them have to yet to address the fight as of now.
This arrives after Gotti showed his support for Rule following the disastrous Fyre Festival. While many blamed the latter for what happened at the festival, Gotti stood by his pal. Admitting to not really knowing about the event, he said in an interview, "I wasn't like deeply a part of it or around it, but I'm always there to support Ja."
"What I thought about it was we didn't know [Billy McFarland]. I met Billy and he fooled me too. I thought he was a good guy that was doing the right thing. I didn't know this dude was a hell of a scam artist," he continued. "Ja, in his defense, Ja Rule could have distanced himself from it. He could have played the Kendall Jenner role." For those who don't remember, Kendall was among the models who were paid to promote the festival, which was postponed indefinitely after the event experienced problems related to security, food, accommodation, medical services and artist relations.
McFarland, the creator of the festival, pleaded guilty to one count of wire fraud to defraud investors and ticket holders and a second count to defraud a ticket vendor while out on bail. He was sentenced to six years in prison and ordered to forfeit $26 million. Meanwhile, co-founder Rule was off the hook after a judge ruled that he didn't know the event would be a disaster.
