Ohio rapper Machine Gun Kelly reportedly has been sued over an attack during a Florida bar fight in January, according to TMZ. A bouncer named William Long filed the lawsuit in Florida, alleging that MGK (real name Richard Baker) attacked him with a bottle. According to Long's lawyer, MGK threw a bottle at Long, almost slicing his client's finger off. The lawsuit claims that Long was hospitalized for eight days and underwent two separate surgeries following the fight. Long is reportedly seeking over $15,000 in damages.

Back in January, news broke of the St. Petersburg brawl that led to the Bad Boy rapper's arrest. Machine Gun Kelly's debut EP, Half Naked & Almost Famous, was released in March.
