Published Feb 11, 2010Back in December, rapper Kid Cudi caused quite a stir when he punched a fan while performing at Vancouver's Commodore Ballroom. After someone threw their wallet on stage, Cudi tossed it back into the crowd. Attendee Michael Sharpe caught the wallet, but since it wasn't his he threw it back on stage. Cudi didn't like the gesture, and responded with a well-thrown punch.
Speaking with TMZ right after the incident, Sharpe said he wasn't going to press charges, and instead hoped he could meet Cudi to talk about the situation. Now, the gossip site has updated the situation, reporting that Cudi allegedly gave Sharpe a call. Blaming his flared temper on the alcohol he consumed that night, Cudi reportedly apologized for the incident, and offered Sharpe an all-expenses paid trip to New York City.
Presumably, Cudi's willingness to apologize comes from the good spirits he's in lately. The rapper has been hard at work on his HBO show, How to Make It in America. According to a recent interview with MTV, the role is a dream come true for the rapper.
"It's just really dope, and people could see me be silly. My album was so deep and serious, and that was just me showing my dark side," Cudi explained. "Acting is therapeutic - just being able to pretend to be somebody else for a little bit, it's dope."
