According to court documents obtained by RadarOnline.com, last week, Rocky [real name: Rakim Mayers] revealed his legal team have started “early discussions aimed toward settlement” of the case which accused him of assault, battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and negligence.
In the suit, Relli [real name: Terell Ephron] claimed Rocky invited him over to a location in Hollywood in November 2021. He said shortly after arriving he started arguing with Rocky.
Relli said “during the altercation and while in close physical proximity” to each other, “[Rocky] pulled out a handgun and purposefully pointed in the direction of [Relli] and fired multiple shots.”
Relli said one of the bullets struck him.
Rocky and Relli agreed to put the civil case on hold until the criminal case is resolved. In his recent filing, the rapper said his next hearing in the criminal case is in November.
The decision to put the case on hold came after Rocky said he would have to invoke his Fifth Amendment privilege against self-incrimination if asked any questions — due to the pending criminal case.
