Rich Homie Quan wasn’t lashing out at a fan when he smacked a guy at a concert earlier this month … he was dishing out justice to a dude he says was TRYING TO ROB HIM.
As we reported … Quan was performing on stage in Racine, Wisconsin July 4 when someone in the crowd grabbed his arm. It appeared the man was trying to pull himself on stage.
But a rep for Quan tells TMZ … the guy wasn’t trying to steal the limelight … he was trying to steal Quan’s watch … right off his wrist. And that’s why the rapper knocked him upside the head.
Quan himself tells us: “The person that tried to rob me was not one of my fans. My fans are loyal to me. I did what anyone else would do if they were being robbed.”
