Rapper Yung Joc has denied reports his eye-catching `H' pendant and giant rope chain were stolen during a fight after the MOBO Awards in London last week (ends21Sep07).
The Georgia-based rap star has confirmed he and T-Pain were involved in a scuffle at a post-MOBO party at the Crystal Club, which doubled as Yung Joc's birthday bash.
He reports to MTV News that he handed his famous jewellery to his manager for safe keeping when he realised there was going to be trouble.
Talking for the first time about the scuffle, Joc recalls, "Pain was talking to this chick and this big football-player-looking dude came up. He was big as hell.
"The dude grabbed her arm and she was like, `I'm not leaving...' The next thing you know, the dude started talking s**t to Pain. The dude poured his wine out and... I looked back at my security (guard), gave him my chain. He put it in my case and handed it to (manager) Rico.
"Then the dude hit T-Pain's partner in the head with a glass in his hand."
The attacker attempted to flee the club but was stopped by a member of T-Pain's entourage - and a fight broke out.
But Joc's jewellery was kept safe throughout: "The craziest part about this is I've never seen so much hype about a piece of jewellery."
