Miami rapper Rick Ross is not taking the latest charges filed against him lying down. If you’ll remember, his former groundskeeper, Jonathan Zamudio, sued Ross for locking him in a room, then whooping and pistol whipping him for throwing a party in his mansion and driving his cars. Zamudio claims to have suffered injuries so severe that he had to eat through a straw. Ross is currently out on a $2 million bond.
The MMG commander and chief is now saying that Zamudio is lying on him and has the proof he needs. According to TMZ, “Ross calls this a simple shakedown from a guy who left paraphernalia used for cocaine and other drugs all over his house.” Zamudio called 911 dispatch three hours after the alleged assault took place. In this call, Zamudio was calm and composed and failed to mention any pistol whipping or injury. He also spoke clearly, which Ross claims is proof that there were no injuries to his jaw.
Ross is also claiming that Zamudio is “in cahoots” with 50 Cent, one of his bitter rivals. He believes that Zamudio’s lawsuit is payback for 50 losing a $7 million lawsuit to Ross’ baby’s mother for leaking her sex tape on his website. 50 and Zamudio are friends, evidenced by an Instagram post Fif made two weeks ago. The Queens rapper and the groundskeeper have their arms around each other in a chummy fashion, as Zamudio flips the bird. The caption now reads:
