Bone Thugs-n-Harmony

United Against Lawsuit

10/22/2011 4:53 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1022-Bone-Thugs-2-Harmony-getty-EX
The rap group Bone Thugs-n-Harmony is standing together to take on a lawsuit filed against the group stemming from an alleged altercation outside their tour bus earlier this year ... this according to one of the group's members.

As TMZ first reported, Bizzy Bone (far left) was investigated for alleged assault in Chicago back in June after two men claimed he flipped out and beat them up after they paid $80 to party with the group after a concert. According to a report, no arrests were ever made and earlier this week ... the men decided to file a lawsuit against Bizzy and the rest of the band.

Flesh-n-Bone (second from the left) tells TMZ the group feels "the truth will come out" and they plan to "deal with this in court."

He tells us, "We generally don’t let fans on the bus and we are never mean to any of our fans. We love all of them. We have the right representation and we will handle this matter accordingly."

They are just trying to make some money thats why they are doing this and they know they fell off years and can't sell records any more solo or group wise what a damn shame but good luck to them.

If their group's name didn't give away what a high
class performance could be expected by the fan
who claims they were beat up over the $80 they
paid to party with the boys on the bus, well,.....
good luck with the judge. These thugs so broke
they expect the fans to not only blow them but
bring the drugs to use while they do it. Hasbeens
If they evah wiz.

That's funny -- Bizzy Bone. I suppose in order to get a little street cred Mr. Bone changed his name from Bryon McCane (the black dimorphic name of Byron/Brian) to Bizzy. Good move...bet it took all 5 of you to think of that.

I met Bone Thugs & Harmony after a concert in Portland, OR several years ago. I had seen them the night before at a small club after the Insane Clown Posse show in Seattle was cancelled. They were AWESOME saying they remembered me from the club the night before. They were nothing but polite and very thankful for us coming to the show. This story sounds like BS to me.

Ya'll dont have a clue 2 what ya'll talkin about. This incident happened, the guy that got bombed on brought his couzin a long and his cuz was talkin smack, one of em touched Bizzy and the he flipped on him. They guy that got hit said they were workin it out and no charges were going to get made. The guy(s)who got hit went on a chat board btnhboard.com and posted what happened, supposively. This aint no publicity stunt, if anything they were trying to settle this without media involvement.

Hey TMZ ,
I'm a Photographer that has been close with Kray and the crew of The Life Entertainment for a year now . I've been to several events with them , and never has there been any altercations before , during , or after their show while I was there . They normally sign autographs, and take pix with fans .... but I have yet to see them "party" with any of them ....... someone out there just tryin"' to get paid ....
