Sources report that the legendary Busta Rhymes was arrested last night after an altercation that escalated at his local gym. Busta got to the gym and wanted to have a camera man record his work out. The gym worker (who apparently had prior “beef” with Busta) denied and that’s when things went left:
Reports the New York Daily News:
Several witnesses said the two had been at odds in the past and questioned why Busta was busted.
One bodybuilder said that a front desk employee got into a beef with Busta Tuesday when the rapper tried to bring a cameraman into the gym to record his workout routine. The worker refused to allow the videographer inside.
When Rhymes returned to the workout facility Wednesday he approached the desk to buy a water and a chocolate-flavored Lean Body drink and the employee told him he had to leave.
“Things got heated. Busta splashed water on him and the employee threw water back. Busta’s security got between them,” said Sean Aird, 23, a bodybuilder from Brooklyn. “The cops came and (the employee) kept changing his story.”
Others at the popular weightlifting spot agreed.
Another witness, an employee at the gym, confirmed that there had been bad blood between the two in the past.
“This has been going on for a long time,” the employee told The News.
Let’s be honest, things get heated sometimes. Hope things work out for Busta Rhymes.
