On Monday, rapper Theophilus London made headlines after he appeared to confront D.L. Hughley over comments he made about Kanye West.

London, who previously appeared on Ye’s 2015 track “All Day,” shared a series of posts to his Instagram in which he claimed he pulled up on the comedian to demand that he apologize to Kanye. 

“Lmao I told him to apologize on camera for doing that dumb Vlad interview and his people called security,” London wrote alongside a blurry image of Hughley taken at Nobu in Miami. The Jasmine Brand’s re-posting of the clip, as seen below, prompted a response from Claudia Jordan, who called London’s actions “corny as hell!”

After London’s posts circulated on social media, Hughley told Vlad TV what really went down, at least from his perspective. 

According to the comedian, he and London did not have any serious confrontation, as London’s posts seemed to imply, and instead they briefly exchanged words. In one of the videos London posted, he could be seen walking past Hughley as he ate dinner with his family. The comedian told Vlad TV that he noticed London kept walking past the table, and did not appear to be there for any food.

He later got up to go to the bathroom, at which point London approached him and asked about the back-and-forth with Ye. London allegedly told Hughley that he needs to “make it right” with Ye, to which he replied, “[Kanye] needs to make it right.” The comedian claimed that their interaction ended very shortly after that, and he was not “pressed” as London had claimed. In fact, he wasn’t even aware of the photo and videos of him that the rapper took, and added that it was Nobu’s security that asked London to leave. 

In an interview with DJ Vlad earlier this month, Hughley said he’d had enough of Ye’s behavior, and accused him of stalking Kim Kardashian. This prompted a response from Ye, in which he suggested he could pay someone to hurt Hughley. Hughley has since responded, in a sign that he has no intention of backing down.
