Blueface Ordered To Pay $13 Million To Closed Strip Club For 2022 Shooting Incident
Blueface is being forced to fork over $13 million to the former strip club whose doors reportedly closed shortly after his 2022 shooting incident.
An order filed Oct. 21 demanded Blueface to pay $13 million in damages to a now-shuttered Las Vegas strip club where he shot a man in 2022, 8 News Now reports. The ruling results from a lawsuit that Euphoric Gentlemen’s Club filed in December 2022, accusing Blueface of being the cause of the strip club’s forced closure.
Blueface, real name Jonathan Porter, was sentenced to probation earlier this month for shooting and injuring a man outside the club on Oct. 8, 2022. According to the strip club’s lawsuit, “as a direct result of [Blueface’s] negligence, willful, and reckless conduct, the club’s licenses were revoked” on Oct. 14, 2022.
One year later, the rapper must pay the closed strip club millions more than his reported $5 million net worth. The rapper will pay lost revenue of $12.6 million, plus other damages, totaling nearly $13.1 million, according to documents shared by entertainment reporter Meghann Cuniff.

The shooting victim claims he had spoken to Blueface inside the strip club earlier in the night but later made a joke about the rapper “speaking with some females in a cheap vehicle,” which set Blueface off. The Los Angeles rapper was initially charged with attempted murder. Still, after taking a plea deal, the charges were lowered to battery and discharging a firearm at or into an occupied structure.
The man shot was in court earlier this month to watch Blueface get sentenced. He went viral after snapping a selfie with Blueface and his legal team in the background.

Blueface faced two civil cases; one was dismissed because of his sentencing in the shooting case. The rapper was arrested on a robbery charge while entering court in June on claims he stole a fan’s phone at the Palms casino.
Prosecutors only agreed to dismiss the charge after the rapper was sentenced earlier this month. But if Blueface thought he would get off with just probation, he can think again.
