Family Sues Proof Estate

The family of an Army veteran has filed suit against the estate of Proof, whom authorities say shot the vet before being killed by another man.

Police say Proof, whose real name was Deshaun Holton, got into an altercation with Keith Bender after-hours at Detroit’s CCC club along Eight Mile Road on April 11th. The fight escalated and shots were fired.

Holton was a member of D12 and best man at Eminem‘s wedding in January.

The lawsuit claims Holton was liable for attacking and wounding Bender, who died a week after the incident. Damages are unspecified; an earlier lawsuit filed in the incident was dismissed.

Prosecutors say Bender’s cousin shot the rapper in an act of self-defense after Proof shot Bender.
