Reality Chick Rashidah Ali Attacks Bouncer In $10 Million Birthday Brawl Suit
Shoe boutique owner Rashidah Ali, who's appeared on "Basketball Wives," is being sued for $10 million for viciously attacking a NYC club bouncer. Deets inside...
NYC club bouncer Joseph Wright is suing Rashidah Ali (friend to Shaunie O'neal and the Basketball Wives) for $10 million claiming she cut him from his hairline to his mouth during her birthday blowout at Greenhouse. In a suit filed in Manhattan Supreme Court on Tuesday, Joseph says an altercation went down after two of Rashidah's friends were accused of feeling up a cocktail waitress.
As he was escorting the drunken guests out of the club, he says Rashidah ran up on him and reached for his face. Joseph said it wasn't until he felt the blood streaming down his face that he knew he was attacked.
"I felt her hand reach through and start grabbing at my face. She's clawing over my eye, at my face, and I didn't feel anything at first....Then I realized I felt the blood dripping down my shirt. I was leaking."
While some may have seen Rashidah during an appearance on "RHOA" Joseph's lawyer Paul Edelstein said, "We think Ali should be on "The Real Housewives of Rikers Island."
Rashidah is accused of fleeing the scene as Joseph waited for an ambulance. He suffered a severed nerve and artery, and had to undergo surgery and receive 50 stitches.
But Rashidah may have "scratched off" on Joseph's face because of her financial difficulties. Her shoe sales are not on good financial footing.
Her Harlem shop, Bourgeoisie Shoes, recently shuttered because she owed six months of back rent, and last November, cops busted her for grand larceny after skipping out on a bill at a Ritz-Carlton. She has a court appearance on March 1.
And in 2005, she was convicted of attempted larceny in Connecticut and given three years of probation.
SMH. Rashidah has a lot going on. But forget $10 milli Joseph, you're going to be lucky to get $10,000.
