In October 2023, rapper Blueface was ordered by a judge to pay a shuttered Las Vegas strip club more than $13 million in damages after a shooting in 2022, according to TMZ.  

Also, Blueface, whose real name is Johnathan Porter, was sentenced to probation by a different judge for the October 8, 2022, shooting that left one man injured. The victim was shot in the hand outside of Euphoric Gentlemen’s Club on Windy Road off the Las Vegas Strip, per court documents.

According to KLAS, the victim recognized Porter in the venue and had a chat with him, adding that he made a joke about Porter “speaking with some females in a cheap vehicle.”

The rapper was first charged with attempted murder and following a plea deal, the charges were lowered to battery and discharging a firearm at or into an occupied structure.

Still, he was ordered to shell out over $12 million for the venue’s lost revenue and another $84k to cover lost wages for the employees, according to TMZ.

Per legal documents obtained by the platform, the $13 million damages have gone unpaid since the judge ordered it. It added that the accrued interest has raised the new total due to a staggering $14,386,164.23.
