Pharrell Williams attended A&E Network’s ‘Shining A Light’ concert in Los Angeles last night at The Shrine Auditorium rocking a pretty fresh-looking black eye.
No one knows exactly what happened, but according to a wild (and probably false) rumor, Jay Z punched Pharrell in the eye for backing out of their Tidal deal and instead signing a deal with Apple Music.
An ‘insider’ is being quoted as saying:
“[Jay Z] took it as a slap in the face for Pharrell to do that. Especially since Pharrell was one of the main people who came up with the idea for [Tidal].”
As of now, Pharrell hasn’t addressed what happened — although we do think it’s strange he didn’t opt to cover it up for the event. He could have given it a dab of concealer or SOMETHING!
