Rapper Rich Homie Quan recently made headlines for slapping a fan during a concert , now new reports suggest the Atlanta rapper might have just been acting in self defense. A Rep for the rapper is claiming the fan was trying to steal his watch before he slapped him.
According to new reports, Quan might have been robbed if he didn’t slap the fan during the show.
As we reported … Quan was performing on stage in Racine, Wisconsin July 4 when someone in the crowd grabbed his arm. It appeared the man was trying to pull himself on stage. But a rep for Quan tells TMZ … the guy wasn’t trying to steal the limelight … he was trying to steal Quan’s watch … right off his wrist. And that’s why the rapper knocked him upside the head. Quan himself tells us: “The person that tried to rob me was not one of my fans. My fans are loyal to me. I did what anyone else would do if they were being robbed.”(TMZ)
Rich Homie Quan took to his Twitter account to address the slap shortly after the show.
