Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa at Irving Plaza on May 3, 2016 in New York City.  

The two face more legal trouble after a railing collapsed at their New Jersey show.

During a Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa concert in New Jersey back on Aug. 5, a railing collapsed and injured nearly 40 attendees. So far, nearly 20 lawsuits have been filed following the incident at the BB&T Pavilion, the most recent of which comes from the grandmother of a 16-year-old cheerleader who was at the show. 

In the lawsuit, the grandmother holds both the rappers (as well as venue managers Live Nation) accountable. Once the railing gave way, multiple people fell several feet onto the concrete below, and according to the recent documents filed -- which TMZ reported on -- the cheerleader's injuries from her fall are severe enough that she had to put competitive cheerleading on hold. The documents also state she is now having nightmares from the occurrence.
