Footage of Tyga being thrown out of a club where Floyd Mayweather was celebrating his birthday has been shared on social media, revealing the rapper reached for a gun amid an altercation.
The 42nd birthday party in Mayweather’s honour was held last night (Saturday February 23) at the Sunset Room in Hollywood and lots of people were in attendance.
While it’s usually the birthday boy or girl who gets in a bit of a mess by the end of the night, on this illustrious occasion, it was the 29-year-old rapper – real name is Micheal Ray Stevenson – who ended up in a scuffle at the club door.
Tyga was reportedly kicked out of the club after a skirmish on the dance floor with an unidentified fellow reveler.
While security tried to take Tyga off the premises, the rapper apparently put up a bit of a fight and had to be forcibly removed, by the neck, nonetheless.
Once outside, the altercation escalated. Stills show that at one point during the scuffle, Tyga – who is father to a son called King Cairo aged just six – reportedly reaches for his security guard’s gun.
The guard acting accordingly and made sure the firearm never left his holster, so Tyga luckily was unable to take possession of the gun.
According to a TMZ reporter who was lurking outside the club at the time – apparently there to ask about the break-up between Tristan Thompson and Khloe Kardashian – it took a while for things to calm down, but eventually Tyga and his crew left the club.
The footage has been shared online:

Tyga gained some notoriety among the mainstream media for his relationship with former girlfriend Kylie Jenner, who was not yet 18 years old when it was alleged the now-exes had started dating.
He has a number of ties with the Kardashian/Jenner clan.
The mother of his child is none other than Blac Chyna, the former partner of Rob Kardashian, the brother of Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe who publicly shared private pictures of Chyna in revenge during the messy break up.
Honestly, all the money and fame in the world can’t be worth the drama.
