A man has filed a lawsuit against Eminem, claiming the rapper punched him two years ago while they were in the bathroom of a Detroit strip club.

The Detroit News reports Miad Jarbou of Royal Oak filed the lawsuit Thursday in Oakland County Circuit Court seeking more than $25,000 in damages.

The lawsuit claims Eminem punched him July 13, 2006 at Cheetah's On the Strip Gentlemen's Club.

A message seeking comment was left Friday by The Associated Press with an Eminem spokesman.

Eminem, whose real name is Marshall Bruce Mathers III, wasn't charged following reports of an incident at the club in 2006.

The strip club is located on Eight Mile Road, the border between Detroit and the northern suburbs made famous by Eminem's hit 2002 film "8 Mile."
