AMERICAN singer August Alsina has alleged he’s in more celebrity drama after a troubling post claiming rapper Tory Lanez assaulted him.
Alsina’s allegation of being assaulted by the rapper after a performance Saturday night in Washington, DC comes not long after sparking a feud with Will Smith and some reported beef with Trey Songz.
In a 2020 interview with Angela Yee, who’s known from The Breakfast Club, the now 30-year-old singer confessed his love for Smith’s wife of 25 years, Jada Pinkett-Smith.
Alsina claimed to have held a romantic relationship with the 51-year-old actress before her representatives called his allegations “absolutely not true,” according to Vulture.
Pinkett-Smith later admitted to the “entanglement” on her award-winning Facebook Watch talk show, Red Table Talk.
The Breakfast Club also plays a part in the reigniting of Alsina’s “beef” with Trey Songz as the singer told the podcast hosts about an issue with Alsina in 2017.
“August was talking crazy a couple [of] years ago and I ain’t want to fight,” Trey Songz said.
“I want to get some money. There [are] other people who got problems with me that I ain’t even address. I don’t want to fight [anybody]. That don’t prove nothing.”
Tory Lanez Drama?
Alsina shared a photo of himself on Instagram with a bloody mouth on Sunday claiming he was “ran down” by a “4’11 sized leprechaun” with “8 oversized security guards.”
“Whole time, I’m one deep. No security,” Alsina said in the caption of his post. “Tory continues to ask w/ a broken ego why I didn’t dap him up.”

He claimed that when Tory Lanez approached him with that question, Alsina met him with two reasons why he didn’t engage in Lanez’s dap handshake greeting.
One of the reasons Alsina shared allegedly stems from a comment Lanez made a couple of years ago regarding his relationship with Pinkett-Smith.
“I was a fan of him and didn’t understand him speaking on my business publicly In the past, because I don’t know him or ever met him until last night,” Alsina said he explained to Lanez.
“So when he spoke it caught me off guard because of his past actions, I assumed he didn’t like me, that’s all,
“Not to mention, with my history of health & condition just recently overcoming being paralyzed, my doctor directed me not to compromise my health while out on [the] road and shake as less hands as possible due to corona, & monkeypox.”
Alsina has been open about living with genetic autoimmune liver disease for years.
His caption went on to say that, as far as he could understand, no “disrespectful words were exchanged” during their initial interaction.
“So I was a bit confused at how somehow he turnt him self up [with] anger,” he claimed.
“And he snuck me when I turned my head to move to the side amongst all his antsy moving and to keep an eye on the endless [men] that was with him surrounding me.”
Alsina claimed in his Instagram caption that Lanez ran behind one of the men with him and hid “to run back in the building.”
“There was never a ‘fight!’ Simply an Assault.”
He proceeded to make more claims about Lanez, who was charged in 2020 for reportedly shooting Megan Thee Stallion in her feet while the two were in Hollywood Hills, California.
He was charged with felony assault and pleaded not guilty in the case.
“Dude has no real friends and is on a crash out mission,” Alsina’s caption continued.
“With that said, I was gone keep it G & not come to the [internet], but you moving with foul intent feeding falsities to blogs to look for a ‘moment’ cus them moments ain’t happening on stage for [you],
“I will assist you in that, gracefully. His [people] got the whole thing on camera, PUT. THE. FOOTAGE. OUT!! I’d like to see it.”
Upset fans encouraged Alsina to sue Lanez in the comments of his post.
Someone said: “I would definitely sue! Health issues too! Yeah I’d sue!”
Another fan added: “I would sue the lil height he have left off him.”
Others even made connections between this alleged altercation and Lanez’s felony charges in connection to Megan Thee Stallion.
“[He] crashed out because [you didn’t] shake his hand and he wants me to believe he [didn’t] shoot Megan? Yeah okay,” another comment said about Lanez.
Alsina shared another photo on Instagram a few hours later showing a closer view of his busted lip with a caption saying his personal skincare line, Encina Wellness, “is the key to healing this.”
Lanez denied having the altercation with Alsina while talking to a YouTuber known as DJ Akademiks in a video uploaded Sunday evening.
“Nothing happened, I don’t even know what this kid is talking about, brother,” Lanez said to Akademiks when asked about what happened between him and Alsina.
“I don’t know if he’s doing a promo — I don’t know what that [man] is talking about.”
The U.S. Sun has reached out to Tory Lanez for comment about the claims.
