XXXTentacion is suing the woman he appears to have smacked in the head in a video, claiming she's lying about what really happened in the video, and hitting him up for a stack of cash. XXX says his manager reached out to the woman directly after she posted the video last month. As TMZ first detailed ... he says her grandparents called back and asked what the rapper would do to "make everything good."
According to the suit, the grandparents alleged XXX had also tossed a BB firearm at the woman's face preceding the hit seen on video. He claims they asked for $300k in exchange for the woman's quiet. In docs, the 20-year-old hip-jump star says she was threatening to hold a news meeting to blast him as a successive abuser of ladies.
In the suit, X says the woman was lying when she posted a message saying she didn't reveal the video earlier because she was "alarmed for her life." In fact, in the suit he says he was simply kidding in the video while dancing behind her, and just "tapped the back of her head."
His side of the story is she had admitted to him the entire thing was simply horseplay, and she was NOT harmed. He claims she and her family were taking advantage of his dilemma - he's already awaiting trial for an alleged 2016 beating of an ex, who was pregnant at the time. He's suing the woman for fraud and defamation.
