According to TMZ, the family of the woman who died in a stampede that occurred after GloRilla and Finesse2tymes’ performance in Rochester, New York, has declared their intention to sue the rappers.
Brandy Miller, 35, was amongst three others who died in the stampede that occurred on March 5 at Main Street Armory. According to Brandy’s sister Michelle, the family is preparing legal action. After the loss of Brandy, who was declared dead after being admitted to a hospital in severe condition, they subsequently met with a number of attorneys. The family “has no plans to back down,” her sister continued, adding they are looking for a well-known lawyer to represent them in the lawsuit.
The suit will reportedly name the two rappers Glorilla and Finesse2tymes, as well as the promoters, and the venue.
According to reports, both of the rappers had departed from the venue prior to the horrific incident, which authorities said was brought on by unfounded concerns of a shooting at the grounds.
Police Chief David M. Smith said in a statement, “We do not have any evidence of gunshots being fired or of anyone being shot or stabbed at the scene.”
Adding, “What began last night as a night of live music and fun for the performer GloRilla ended in tragedy with one person dead and two more fighting for their lives.”
Two other concertgoers, Rhodesia Belton, 33, and Aisha Stephens, 35, were announced dead shortly after Brandy’s passing.
Following the tragic news, Glorilla took to social media to express her condolences to the victim’s families, writing:
“I am devastated & heartbroken over the tragic deaths that happened after Sunday’s show,” she tweeted. “My fans mean the world to me 😢praying for their families & for a speedy recovery of everyone affected 🙏🏽.”

As a measure of caution, the venue has since had its license revoked while investigations are ongoing, with Rochester Police Chief Smith, adding:
“It is one step we can immediately take to ensure that the events of Sunday night are not repeated. The bottom line is, lives were lost, and we need to take steps to make sure that no lives are lost in the future if this was indeed something that was preventable.”
