What does rapper Snoop Dogg and celebrity blogger Perez Hilton have in common? Well according to one woman – they both failed to intervene during an altercation where she was assaulted.
Driver Kim McGee claims she backed out of her contract to shuttle Snoop to the South by Southwest music festival in 2010 after the rapper’s tour manager, Frank Palomino, allegedly turned verbally abusive. When she reneged on her promise, Palomino allegedly assaulted her at a party hosted by Hilton, real name Mario Lavandeira, Jr.
According to McGee, Palomino shook her and pulled out several chunks of her hair before throwing her to the ground and holding her against her will.
McGee claims both Perez and Snoop witnessed her being assaulted and failed to intervene during the altercation or cooperate with detectives investigating the incident.
McGee filed her lawsuit on March 15 against Snoop and Hilton in Travis County, Texas. She is seeking damages for negligence and false imprisonment.
