George Floyd’s family is suing Kanye West for $250, following false claims during a podcast

George Floyd’s family is suing Kanye West in a $250 million lawsuit against the American rapper who goes by the name ‘Ye’.

The lawsuit has been filed on behalf of Floyd’s minor daughter Gianna, following false claims West made about Floyd’s cause of death.

Roxie Washington, Gianna’s mother, is leading the lawsuit and is reportedly “very distressed and hurt by the allegations.” 

“Mr. Floyd’s cause of death is well-settled through evidence presented in courts of law during the criminal and civil trials that were the result of his untimely and horrific death. Nevertheless, you have maliciously made statements that are inaccurate and unfounded, causing damage to Mr. Floyd’s estate and his family.”

The family is suing the rapper, his business partners and associates for “harassment, misappropriation, defamation and infliction of emotional distress.”

West made the controversial claims during a podcast episode on Drink Champs’ where he spoke about Floyd’s cause of death.

He was referring to a documentary titled “The Greatest Lie Ever Sold: George Floyd and the Rise of BLM” by conservative commentator Candace Owens. 

West claimed Floyd did not die by force to the neck, but instead from the drug Fentanyl.

“When you look, the guy’s knee wasn’t even on his neck like that.”
