DeJ Loaf reportedly involved in backstage brawl before BET Awards

Apparently things didn't go so well for Detroit rapper Deja "DeJ Loaf" Trimble at this past weekend's BET Awards.

According to TMZ, Trimble was involved in a backstage brawl that started when two of her recently axed ex-managers showed up during Saturday's soundcheck at Los Angeles' Microsoft Theater. That's when a fight broke out between the former management and Trimble, her brother, and her new management. Reportedly, one of the former managers required stitches for a head wound, though according to Fader Trimble didn't throw any of the punches. 

Trimble was nominated for three BET Awards (best female hip-hop artist, best new artist, and the "viewers' choice award" for "Try Me").
