Ray J vs. Fabolous Fight Footage Leaks, 50 Cent Speaks Out

Ray J and Fabolous

Ray J and Fabolous have each shared their accounts of what happened in Las Vegas over the weekend. Now TMZ has obtained footage from the fight that occurred backstage at Fab’s concert at the Palms. In the iPhone-filmed clip, 50 is seen standing against the wall before Ray J confronts Fab. There is a scuffle and exchange of words, but it’s difficult to make out exactly what happened.

Before the footage leaked, 50 checked in with Funkmaster Flex on Hot 97, offering his take on their showdown. He claims Ray J tapped Fabolous on the shoulders and swung at him, but Fab wasn’t hurt. “There was a swing, but it didn’t land on nothing, so you can’t call it a punch,” he said.

“Fab is looking at him like he’s crazy,” added 50, whose new album is due in November. “He said, ‘Whoa. Have you lost your mind right now?’”

The G-Unit mogul corroborated with what Fabolous said earlier, hinting that Ray J may have been on something. “I think [Ray J] had a little bit of juice in him.”

50 stepped in to break it up before things escalated further. “I pushed Fab and his brother Paul to the side. It wasn’t really a good look.”

Footage of their Vegas brawl can be seen below.
