Actor Ken “Ken L.” Lawson is reportedly suing Birdman, Cash Money Records, and Wack 100 after the accomplished manager and record executive allegedly punched him in the face. Per TMZ, the incident took place at the Yamashiro Hollywood restaurant in December of 2019.
According to court documents, Wack approached Lawson’s table claiming that the actor spoke to his wife. This prompted Lawson’s wife, Monique, to introduce herself in an attempt to diffuse the situation. This didn’t phase Wack. Instead, he allegedly told Lawson to “Keep your bitch in check” before punching him in the face.
The blow caused Lawson to “violently strike his head on the ground, knocking him unconscious.” It also allegedly resulted in a 4-inch deep laceration to his chin and lip, multiple jaw fractures, three of his teeth getting dislodged, and one lost tooth. To repair this damage, Lawson was forced to have his jaw wired shut for three months. In the midst of the altercation, Lawson further alleged that Wack acted violently towards his wife before being restrained.
Wack 100 became a household name in hip-hop after managing acts like Ray J and The Game. After building an extensive resume, Birdman enlisted him to be VP of Cash Money West. Since acquiring the position, he’s signed big-name acts like Blueface. So instead of just tapping Wack, Lawson decided to name his business partners in the lawsuit as well.
