A 2007 Waffle House brawl has Kid Rock in court this week to fight a $6,000 lawsuit.

The plaintiff, Harlen Akins, was severely beaten by Kid Rock and his crew at an Atlanta Waffle House, but Kid Rock claims that Akins instigated the attack.

Akins's lawyer, Eric Hertz, says his client was talking to two girls in Kid Rock's group, and that "Kid Rock was either jealous that Akins was getting the attention or was insulted by what Akins was saying to the women."

The victim claims that Kid Rock and five other men then dragged him outside and beat him.

Kid Rock claims that Akins harassed the women and threatened to "call my boys and have them shoot the place up." One of Kid Rock's friends destroyed Akins's phone during the altercation to prevent him from calling.

There are security tapes, but the tapes don't have sound, so the case boils down to the testimonies of those involved, as well as a couple of witnesses present at the Waffle House.

One witness told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that Akins was "covered in blood" and "dazed and confused" after the beating. A waitress said "[Akins] was on the ground and they were still fighting him."

    Atkins should also seek damages against the brother in the background who stood by and said nothing, did nothing.

    I think Kid Rock is guilty for being a cheap son of a biscuit eater. Pancake House!! Really!! Smooth move Rock head, LOL. I guess his name suites him just right, he is nothing more then a big stupid Kid rock head for not knowing better then to just walk away from this brainless situation. As for the law, regardless what anyone may say to someone, it does not give anyone else the right to put their hands on anyone else. Let alone cuase bodily injury to another person. You and your kiddish body gards were wrong and I guess the Big Kid Rock has to pony up. After all it's only $6,000 dollars, I think the Rock head can afford it, but then again he was eating at the Pancake House, LOL who knows.

    That dude should learn to keep his mouth shut. Something tells me that they weren't up early to get a good start on the day. Probably up all night drugs and or drink involved. Grow up, stop acting like children.

    I only chose no as there is once again no "none of the above" answer. I don't believe either of them actually. And with all the guy going after being $6000.00 HE knows that he is as guilty as anyone else involved. It should be a simply, go your seperate ways thing and stop acting like little boys on a freakin playground.

    He could have just walked away. But I love that he, of all people, got into a fight...at one of the dirtiest places ever created. Did he get checked for Hep C, because I hear that you can get it from breathing the air in one of those places.

    Honestly I don't care who is right or wrong, if he was some regular dude there wouldn't be a $6000 lawsuit.

    Once again, SH needs more options.
    I believe in innocent until proven guilty.
    What I wanna hear is the testimony from the girls.

    Since it doesn't have sound, we'll never fully know. Therefore it would be a smart move on Kid Rock's point to just pay the money.

    "or was insulted by what Akins was saying to the women."
    Now this is another thing I wanna know about.

    Voted no because I don't believe either side.

    There's no 3rd option.

    I need full testimonies from the people who were present there, before I make my claim.

    did it really take 5 dudes to kick this guys ass? maybe if it was one on one it would be different.
    6000 is probably just enough to cover medical bills. kid rock should pay he's getting off easy.

    but loooooool if you have to say "i got beat up by kid rock"

    If Kid or his entourage gets into fighting then yes they should pay because noone forced them to start tossing jammies....It looks like 5? guys against 1 on the tape? I think 6 grand is a small sum considering some to the amounts they sue celebs for.
