DAYUM!!! Where Is Mike Epps Supposed To Find An Extra Million Dollars???

Mike Epps

File this under “When The Hood Life Backfires” and “When Keeping It Real Goes Wrong.”

According to TMZ, a Detroit photographer wants a million dollars for being on the receiving end of Mike Epps‘ fist a couple of months ago… the target of his hoodrat friends’ bullets.

Mike Epps just got sued for $1 million for punching a photog back in November — but the victim claims the violence didn’t end there … accusing Epps’ friends of firing shots at him as he tried to escape.

Cameraman Douglas Thornton filed the seven-figure lawsuit today in Michigan — claiming he was covering a public event hosted for Epps at the Key Club in Detroit. According to Thornton, Epps went ballistic and started grabbing at Thornton’s camera … at which point a fist-flying brawl erupted.

Thornton claims Epps unleashed a “brutal beating” — and after Thornton was physically removed from the club, “members of Epps’ entourage fired several shots at Thornton who ran for his life.”

Thornton’s attorney tells TMZ, “Mr. Epps is lucky he is not facing a murder charge.”

According to the police report, obtained by TMZ, Thornton claims he was “hired to film the party that was being thrown for Mike Epps.”

SMH. Yeah, the photographer is definitely reaching a little. But we can’t quite understand how guys like Mike Epps go all this time as a well-behaved unknown then become absolute idiots the minute checks start coming in.

    Can’t say the story is credible but … in response to ‘become absolute idiots the minute checks start coming in’. It is possible that some were ‘absolute idiots’ before checks came in but we all know it’s ain’t a story until it matters, like when you reach a certain status perse.

    Have you read it yet? 5 chapters for your laughing pleasure .. ok, a tear here and there too. But it’s loosely based on truths so take a sneak peek. saved-miamac.blogspot.com
