Eyewitness Says Girl Jumped Off The Mad Decent EDM Cruise After A Twerk-Off Went Bad
Last night we told you the terrible news that a girl had jumped off the Norwegian Pearl when it was 22 miles off the coast of Cuba. The cruise ship was hosting the Mad Decent Boat Party, sailing from Miami to Cozumel with artists like A-Trak, Borgore, Diplo, Dillon Francise, Dirty South Joe, FLosstradamus, G-Eazy, and Major Lazer scheduled to perform. The ship is returning to Miami early and a massive search effort by the U.S. Coast Guard is now underway in the Gulf of Mexico.
Meanwhile, some interesting new details of what happened during a pool party prior to her jumping. According to an eye-witness report from the New York Post and NBC 6, it’s a “twerk-off” that ended in tragedy:
“She and some other girl who was calling herself the twerk queen were having a twerk-off,” Graham Hansen, who knows the victim, told NBC. “Twerk queen started twerking on her (the missing woman’s) boyfriend, and it caused some sort of issue between the two of them.”
UPDATE: NY Post and NBC 6 changed their story after the guy quoted on the phone said that he heard this via hearsay from a friend on the boat. Not cool.

Listen to the witness describe it to NBC above around the 1:25 moment. Everything about this story is absolutely awful.
