YG and Ty Dolla Sign to Pay Australian Soccer Player $100,000 to Settle Assault Lawsuit
According to a report from TMZ, soccer star Nelly Yoa says he settled with Ty Dolla and YG for a "low six-figure amount" as a way to avoid a potential lawsuit. The settlement comes after Yoa accused the two of attacking him at a nightclub.
The soccer player alleges that Ty and YG punched and kicked him in the head after they tried to clear out a VIP room in Melbourne, Australia, and Yoa refused to leave. Yoa says the alleged attack left him with physical and mental injuries, and also led to him losing a soccer deal with Melbourne City Football Club. The loss of the deal allegedly prevented Yoa from earning a "substantial income."
XXL has reached out to both YG and Ty Dolla $ign's respective camps for comment.
