Philonise Floyd’s Attorney Explains Why Kanye West’s Case Has Stopped
George Floyd’s brother Philonise Floyd is reportedly being represented by civil rights attorney Lee Merritt in a lawsuit against Kanye West.
Recently, however, it has been reported that the original threat of suing 45-year-old rap star Candice Owens has temporarily stopped it.
If you don’t know, West and others going by the name now mentioned George Floyd’s death in a recent episode of the Drink Champs podcast.
Reportedly, Floyd canceled the case because he didn’t want Ye to repeat the false story about his brother’s death.
Merritt, on the other hand, mentioned that the controversial episode was deleted. Also, podcast host NORE apologized for letting Donda’s hitmaker talk without any backlash.
Moreover, the report claims that Floyd believes West has complied with most of the requirements submitted in the cease-fire letter sent on behalf of George Floyd’s daughter Gianna.
Meanwhile, it’s unclear whether Gianna’s lawyers will pursue a $250 million lawsuit against West.
Kanye West Talks About George Floyd’s Death
Kanye West talked about the death of George Floyd in a recent episode of the Drink Champs podcast.
The father of four discussed Candace Owens’ new documentary The Greatest Lie Ever Sold: George Floyd and Rise of BLM.
He said, “I saw the George Floyd documentary made by Candice Owens. One of the things his two roommates said he wanted was a tall man like me. The day he died he prayed for eight minutes.’
He also said, ‘They hit. [Floyd] with fentanyl. Come to think of it, his knees weren’t like that around his neck.’
Host NORE met with Hot 97’s Ebro to apologize for allowing Kanye West to speak freely.
He said, ‘I’m sorry. I sat there and said, ‘It’s just Kanye West. That’s all he said.’ But there is a sense of responsibility when there is an audience. I was ashamed to see myself.’
