YG has been hit with two new felony charges for an alleged robbery inside a Las Vegas hotel earlier this year. According to The Blast, a grand jury came back and indicted YG with an additional two charges over the May 2018 incident. The rapper was originally facing one charge for felony robbery but following the grand jury’s decision, the rapper is now facing three felonies, including grand larceny and larceny from a person. The alleged victim, Benjamin Naderi, sued YG and The Cosmopolitan Hotel Las Vegas over the incident.In the lawsuit, Naderi claimed he saw YG at the Cosmopolitan and when he went up to ask for a photo, YG refused and started to get upset with him. When he went to walk away, Naderi claims he heard the rapper tell his entourage to “get him.” The alleged victim says YG’s party then surrounded him, held him down and began beating him up. Naderi says afterwards YG walked up to him and snatched his chain and diamond pendant. The lawsuit is seeking in excess of $250,000 in damages.
