A man named Miad J. says he was punched in the face by rapper Eminem early Thursday. He says he was hit 4 or 5 times while using the men’s room at a local strip club. Witnesses say Eminem was at the Cheetah’s strip club on 8 Mile Road in Detroit Wednesday night, accompanied by an entourage.

Miad J. spoke to 7 Action News Thursday afternoon and said he was hit by the celebrity rapper at about 1 a.m. Thursday.

Miad says he was in the men’s room, using a urinal next to Eminem, when another man entered the men’s room and started to talk to the rapper.

He says one of Eminem’s bodyguards told the man to be quiet. Miad says he then asked the bodyguard to ease up on the star struck man in the restroom.

“Eminem got done and boom,” Miad recounts. “He started swinging.”

“I wasn’t even expecting it,” Miad said Thursday. “I was just minding my own business, taking a leak.”

Detroit police would like to hear Eminem’s side of the story and then they say they will present their case to the prosecutor’s office for possible charges.

No one from Eminem’s camp or from Cheetah’s strip club would comment on the alleged incident Thursday evening.

Miad insists it was Eminem who hit him and left him with a knot on the side of his face.

After he was punched, Miad says Eminem left the club and Cheetah’s bouncers threw the rapper’s bodyguards out of the club.

As one of the vehicles in Eminem’s entourage was pulling out from the club, witnesses tell police the rapper known as Trick Trick pulled out a gun. While Trick Trick did not point it at anyone, witnesses outside the club did see the weapon.

  1. This is so crazy and Im not sure I completely believe that guy at all. Why would Em hit somebody for no reason at all. And another thing – why as soon as Em makes an appearance he starts getting more drama. Its like everyone forgot about him and then was like ohhh yeah I need to hit him up for another lawsuit. This is so ridiculous.

    Thanks for posting about this though.

  2. I wonder what is going to come out of this story? What will happen to Em? I recently read a story, where he was arrested for hitting a man in the Hard Rocks cafe with a gun over Kim. He got away with being on probation. This will be a second charge for him. I was wondering if it goes to court what will happen to him? Please, keep us posted Isabelle!

  3. i’m not so sure i believe this.hasnt em had enough trama for right now! i mean his best friend just died why would he want to cause more drama for himself?and he wouldnt punch someone for no apparent reason at all! and if he did punch that guy…that guy must have pissed em off big time!plezzzze keep us posted!

  4. I think Marshall is innocent…He always tells the truth. Even if he isn’t I will remain a fan. We all make mistakes…no one’s perfect. I will remain a fan whether he is right or wrong!!!
