BREAKING NEWS: Family of George Floyd SUE Kanye West in $250 million lawsuit after rapper said he died of fentanyl overdose on podcast
The mother of George Floyd’s daughter has made a $250 million legal offer against Kanye West after his controversial comments about his death.
The rapper claimed that Floyd died after taking fentanyl and that the police officer’s knee “wasn’t even on his neck like that.”
Now Floyd West’s family has sent a letter of cancellation for the comments he made on the Drunk Champs podcast, which has now been deleted.
Roxie Washington, Gianna Floyd’s mother, claims in the lawsuit that West made “false statements” about George to “promote his brands.”
The lawsuit also alleges that he made the comments to “increase marketing value and revenue for himself, his business partners and employees.”
Lawyers say West used “malicious lies” about Floyd to profit from his death and the family’s trauma.
Nuru Witherspoon, who represents the family, said in a statement: “The best interests of the child are paramount.
“George Floyd’s daughter is traumatized by Kanye West’s comments and he is creating an unsafe and unhealthy environment for her.”
West made the claim about Floyd’s death while giving a glowing review of the Candace Owens documentary The Greatest Lie Ever Sold: George Floyd and the Rise of BLM
