I think too many people were trying to get to close to her in her VIP section so the situation had to be handled with mace,” one attendee speculated to “Page Six.”
Leading up to her debut project, Dennis Daughter, arriving today (November 10), Lola Brooke kept fans interested with a well-planned rollout. Singles like “You” and “Pit Stop” preceded her work, showing how the East Coast icon can hold her own alongside seasoned emcees like Bryson Tiller and French Montana. Plenty of her female contemporaries later came through to help Brooke too, including Latto, Coi Leray, and Yung Miami.
Ahead of sharing her album with the world, the “Don’t Play With It” hitmaker hosted a listening party in her home state. Unfortunately, a new report from Page Six alleges that things didn’t go exactly as planned after an alleged pepper spray incident at the Soho venue. “I was partying in the back having a good time and all of a sudden I could not breathe. My throat started to burn and my eyes teared up,” one attendee dished to the publication. “I think too many people were trying to get too close to her in her VIP section so the situation had to be handled with mace,” they hypothesized.
Lola Brooke Party Patrons Allegedly Left Due to Mace Spray
Brooke’s team told Page Six they “were unaware of that incident” taking place. Though the lyricist was seemingly unbothered by the chemicals in the air, many others “desperately dashed to the bathroom – and to the bar – for water to flush their eyes and throats.” Others opted to simply leave the party early. “I could not breathe, and had to leave, I could not take it. I honestly don’t know where it came from. One minute everyone was drinking and vibing to her music, the next minute people were coughing, choking and gasping for air. Everybody except Lola though,” another attendee noted.
Now that Lola Brooke’s debut LP has finally hit streamers, the rising starlet is already busy planning her next creative ventures.
