Shana Chin says she was hit with a belt and choked by Dwayne McKenzie, a 27-year-old employee of 50 Cent, last May after a party. She says the encounter left her face, thigh and back bruised.
McKenzie was arrested shortly after the incident. Chin’s lawyer says McKenzie was allowed into a violence education program that could result in the criminal charges being dropped.
The civil lawsuit, filed in Waterbury Superior Court this month, seeks unspecified damages.
Messages seeking comment were left with attorneys for 50 Cent and McKenzie. A hearing on the lawsuit is scheduled for May.
