Tory Lanez’s attorney has dropped him in the middle of a lawsuit with Love & Hip Hop star, Prince.
According to court documents obtained by RadarOnline.com, attorney Christopher E. Ells asked the court for permission to withdraw as counsel, claiming that “irreconcilable differences have arisen” between him and his client. The attorney claims the issues “cannot be resolved.”
Lanez was sued by (real name, Christopher Harty) over claims he was “verbally antagonized” by the rapper while inside LIV Nightclub and “attempted to engage [Prince] in a verbal confrontation.” He says Lanez then punched him in the face with a closed fist and that Lanez’s security took over and continued the beating.
Prince claims that in a separate club a year later, Lanez attacked him.
“Immediately after punching [Prince] in the face, [Tory’s] employee/agent fled and attempted to enter [Tory’s] vehicle. However, [Tory] yelled at the agent/employee and instructed him to leave the premises in a separate vehicle,” the suit read.
Prince is seeking unspecified damages for the alleged physical, psychological, and mental distress “from blunt force trauma” to his neck, chest and back.
