Mike Epps is not having a good year. Atlanta police have issued an arrest warrant for the comic, who is alleged to have assaulted an up-and-coming comic who made a parody video about him and Kevin Hart.
Although Epps was drawing in fans during his recent After Dark tour, he’s also been drawing assaults and beefs.
In April, there were reports of an altercation with Simone Shepard at the Haunted House 2 premiere where it was alleged he punched Shepard in the face after she got into a confrontation with his wife. Shepard, according to her rep, has worked with Epps as a ghostwriter in the past. Though no charges were filed, Shepard released a pic that showed her with a swollen jaw.
A few weeks later, Epps and fellow comedian Mike Epps clashed over Twitter when Epps said Hart was overrated and Hart said Epps was washed up. The two talked it out offline and reconciled their differences. The most recent incident took place outside of an Atlanta nightclub with Epps and comedian Lavar Walker, who recently made a parody video of Epps and Hart on Instagram.
