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.

I work in a hospital and I can assure you, that photo real, not photoshopped!! Also, if she had aimed a little more to his left, she would have sustained severe injuries to his eye socket as well!! A fingernail didn't do that, it definitely was something with a sharp blade almost like a box cutter...The laceration is very deep and that's why it looks wider than just a "cut".... He definitely needed 50 stitches to close that....God bless him!!

Since this story came out, I

Since this story came out, I found out some OTHER... history re: Rashida Ali ... I got this from another site/blog (some of her past fuckry) - "Several patrons had gone to her story(the very-said store that she's failed to meet her monthly tenant obligations; that she's failed to pay her employee(s)) said customers saw that she was selling expensive 'foot gear' WELL-BELOW the prevailing market price (caveat emptor?). They bought the merchandise then thinking the got a "good deal". Some time after, after reading their monthly credit-card statements, they saw that they were charged more-than FULL PRICE! ...She's done this time-after-time! So, not only, is she a "violent-prone menace to society," but she's also a convicted thief, embezzler, liar, and no-account fraud...!! X,Y,"and Z" -- OUT...!!

This isn't really making any

This isn't really making any sense to me!!!!!! So she got mad because, he was putting some of her drunken guest out of her party, because they were feeling on a cocktail waitress. Let me get this right, I'm having a party, some of my guest are out of line and I'm gone get mad because the bouncer put them out, to avoid and problems in the party, why would I get mad, if I invite you to my party you better have enough of respect to no how to act, and if you acting ignorant, your ass is getting tossed!!! So I'm trying to figure out did he deserve to get cut that bad for doing his job? She seems to be a MESS, she sounds very messy and he probably wont get 10 million, but her ass would pay something. Thank god he's ok, but that scar will be there forever and she would pay for it. That includes plastic surgery too.......lol

This is a former fat chick

This is a former fat chick that stay on Twitter acting like she is a major baller because she finally lost weight, sells last season shoes and hangs with Shaunie and Evelyn the angry ghetto gold-diggers circle. Based on her financial details above she is too broke to even pay for meals. She need a little street justice from his people and then she need to see the instead of a jail cell for a while.

HERE'S WHAT HAPPENED... She

HERE'S WHAT HAPPENED... She was asked to leave the club. Her and her friends were fondling/groping a waitress. She obviously didn't want to comply. Her not wanting to behave in a civil manner and her THEN not wanting to leave is why she was ESCORTED OUT OF THE CLUB! This was/is when she ran back and attacked the bouncer! HERE'S WHAT HE SHOULD DO... He'll NOT get any satisfaction from the courts/the law..!!! If he wants 'justice', then he'll have to go and "seek it out" for himself! (as I'd said) he should let the noise die down. Then he/his boys/friends/family should gather all the intelligence on her: 1.) Where her family lives, when they go to work/school/church/shopping/nails done/etc...etc.... 2.) Who are her friends, where do they live/work/etc... 3.) Research the leases, property records and see who she used as references. (most of this is public info) ... Then, and ONLY then, when she thinks it's all "peace and safety"; when she thinks it's "safe to get into the water," then he makes his move!! By that time, she'd have ALREADY "run afoul" of so-many others, that "the suspects" will be too-much/many for law enforcement to fully investigate. ... (with the aforementioned said) He should carve-up the face of her Daughter, Mother, Sister, Aunty,God-Daughter, Niece, Grandmother! <--- This is the ONLY justice he'll get! If he doesn't do this, if he doesn't "seek-out" HIS justice? Then he fully deserved what he got, and the streets will call him a "bitch azz" and fully disown him...!! X,Y,"and Z" -- OUT...!!!!

Look, I am in now way

Look, I am in now way defending this chick, but extending to the family? I know people do that, and maybe you just wrote that for effect, but it really ain't right. I'll be the first to admit, I got some foul @$$ family. As much as I love them, sometimes I hate what they do. I make it my priority to be the kindest person I can be. It would be real messed up if somebody sliced up my face based on something my auntie or god mother did. I know this happens, but that doesn't mean it should or that it is right. If I could keep my people from wilding, I would. Do you feel like you deserve to have you face sliced because of something your sister or your niece did? If he should slice up anybody, he ought to slice up the chick who cut him. That may not be right, but, at least, it's fair.

Do you actually READ or just

Do you actually READ or just make ill-conceived assumptions based on your superior (not) intellect? SHE was not asked to leave the club. It was HER party at Greenhouse. SHE was not accuse of doing anything and the bouncer was not removing her from the facility. Try again, this time with FACTS please.

@Anonymous 12:43 pm - Feb

@Anonymous 12:43 pm - Feb 10th 2011 -- THE FACTS..?? 1.)"an altercation went down after two of Rashidah's friends were accused of feeling up a cocktail waitress." 2.)"Rashidah is accused of fleeing the scene as Joseph waited for an ambulance." 3.) "As he was escorting the drunken guests out of the club, he says Rashidah ran up on him and reached for his face." 4.) Her Character(or lackthereof) a history of Grand Larceny, Theft and numerous Civil Complaints. 5.) (And most compelling?)... The picture speaks volumes...!! This following is just SOME of what she did (some of her fuckry) -- Several customers had gone to her story, the very-said store that she's failed to meet her monthly tenant obligations; that she's failed to pay her employee(s), said customers saw that she was selling expensive 'foot gear' WELL-BELOW the prevailing market price (caveat emptier?). They bought the merchandise then thinking the got a "good deal".

Ugh, I hate when people say

Ugh, I hate when people say "There Has To Be More To The Story!" like there's going to be some sort of justification for the suspect doing what they did. There's ALWAY going to be more to ANY story even if you were there and witnessed it yourself. The outcome of the situation is STILL the outcome no matter what lead up to it. Point Blank Period. If you don't have the common sense to think about what you're doing, you don't deserve any sympathy.

Thank you. I think it is

Thank you. I think it is disgusting to make excuses for this kind of animalistic behavior. What would possess any women who even pretends to have class to do this? Unless he was trying to kill her or a family member there was no need for this to ever happen. He was actually doing his job because HER people were violating someone else. I think she should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

That's why you couldn't pay your phuckin rent for 6months and the store got closed. You spending your money on furs, bags and shoes but ain't gonna have a closet to put it in. Uh...yeah...not the black woman I want reprezenting me! This is a classic case of when "KEEPING IT REAL" goes wrong!
