DETROIT (CN) – Eminem sucker-punched a man as he used the urinal in a Detroit nightclub, the man claims in Oakland County Court. Miad Jarbou demands more than $100,000 from the rapper, whose real name is Marshall Mathers.
Jarbou says he was using a urinal at Cheetah’s “exotic dancing bar” in the early morning hours of July 13, 2006, when Mathers entered, with a large bodyguard, who stood at the door. Jarbou says a friend who accompanied him to the club entered the john and said, “Hey Eminem, what’s up man?”
The complaint continues: “The individual who had accompanied Mathers into the restroom, who was still standing at the door, spoke words to Jarbou’s friend to the effect, ‘Shut the fuck up man! Don’t say another word!’
“Jarbou, still standing at the urinal, spoke words to the effect, ‘Hey man, my friend ain’t starting trouble, it’s just cool to see Eminem.’
“Mathers then stepped back from the urinal and without warning or provocation, as Jarbou continued to urinate, drove his fist in a violent punching manner into the side of Jarbou’s face, knocking him to the ground. …
“The conduct of Defendant as described herein, in ‘sucker punching’ in a vicious, violent and completely unprovoked manner, the Plaintiff as he was in the extremely vulnerable position of standing at a public urinal and urinating, is the very definition of extreme and outrageous conduct.”
Jarbou is represented by Leon Weiss of West Bloomfield.
