An owner of a Miami cheeseburger joint is accusing rapper Busta Rhymes of verbally abusing her and her employees after they refused to serve him before their other customers early Wednesday morning.
According to Stephanie Vitori, the hip-hop star arrived at Cheeseburger Baby restaurant at 5:45 am, amid a rush of customers returning from a night of partying at nearby clubs. When Busta was told to wait in line like everyone else, Vitori says his reaction was anything but friendly. ”He got very upset when we wouldn’t take his order first when he was the last one to come in. We treat everyone as equals here at CBB. You can’t skip the line of ten people waiting in front of you,” Vitori told the Miami New Times.
After their initial interaction, Vitori says Busta went back to his vehicle to wait for his order, but returned to the restaurant still upset once he received his food. ”He came back in the restaurant and started becoming outwardly angry,” Vitori explained to the New Times. “He was calling our delivery driver Santiago a ‘f*g’ multiple times, and me a ‘b*tch’ and [telling] me ‘to shut the f*ck up’ because we put his salt, pepper, ketchup, and mayo — that he asked for — on the side.”
Vitori says Busta didn’t leave Cheeseburger Baby until she called the cops, but called the restaurant a few minutes later to say he was going to “come get us” because there wasn’t any cheese on his burger.
RumorFix is waiting on a response from Busta’s camp.
