Rapper Wiz Khalifa has been named in an assault and battery lawsuit.

Ryan Smith claims he was attacked at the Tunez and Cue restaurant in West Virginia during a Kalifa concert in April, 2013, according to The West Virginia Record.

In a lawsuit filed on 26 May (14) in Monongalia Circuit Court, Smith has named the Black and Yellow hitmaker along with dozens of other defendants, alleging they were negligent in protecting him as a business invitee.

He claims he suffered a broken jaw and multiple hospitalisations and is seeking compensatory and punitive damages for loss of income, disability, disfigurement and loss of enjoyment of life.
