Steve Lobel, who oversees the Grammy-winning group Bone, Thugs-N-Harmony, was among the glitterati partying with West at Vuitton’s Fifth Ave. store on June 7, 2007, when a temporary panel fell off the wall onto his chrome dome, the suit charges.
Lobel is demanding unspecified damages from the company, who, he claims, used unstable wall panels to “obscure the store’s merchandise and create a club look.”
Bone Thugs earned a Grammy in 1997 for its song “Tha Crossroads.” Lobel and the band were in town the weekend of West’s shindig to shoot a video for their latest single, Lobel’s Web site says.
“We were aware of the incident. We reported it to our insurance carrier, and it is being handled by them,” Berger said. Lobel could not be reached for comment.
A rep for Louis Vuitton declined to comment.
