Rapper Yung Berg has remained firm on not being beaten up during a California robbery earlier this week despite reports that cited him as one of the victims.
According to Berg, the only motivation he had to address the reports was due to his family's concern.
"No, I been in Las Vegas," Berg, born Christian Ward, said flatly. "It's crazy to me how one lie from one person when you in the limelight and got this type of shine, one lie could do these type of things. I wasn't going to speak about it because it was lie -- the unfortunate thing is I got a family [that worries]. So my mom start calling me, my dad start calling me, 'Are you hurt? Something wrong with you?' There's nothing wrong with me -- I'm pretty as a newborn baby." (MTV)
Berg also addressed the situation on a self-recorded video earlier this week.
"It's just not the right publicity, I wish y'all was talking about the album or talking about the motherf*cking mixtape or something like that," Berg said in a self-recorded video. "What you got to know is I am fine, you see me? Jesus hands, I'm good. I'm straight, it's nothing wrong with nobody. I'm still gorgeous, I love you mom, thank you for these good genes -- sh*t happens, people can say anything about you in this game, you a celebrity, you know, so you gotta take the good with the bad...Stop paying attention to bullsh*t...I had to get up on here and let y'all know I'm straight, ain't no bullsh*t in the game, Vegas baby."
