The Game Sued by Cousin for Funeral Fight
The Game is in legal hot water behind an alleged fight between he and his cousin during a family member’s funeral. The suit, filed in a Los Angeles court, claims the Compton rapper and four others assaulted the plaintiff, Robert Kirkwood, during his sister’s funeral service last summer.
According to the document, Kirkwood confronted Game for not paying for a portion of the funeral costs for his late cousin. The paperwork, which refers to Game as someone who “fashions himself as some kind of rapper, gangster and/or celebrity,” states that Kirkwood sustained severe and permanent injuries as a result of the incident. He is seeking compensation to cover medical expenses, loss of income and general damages.
However, Game’s recollection of the incident does not match his cousin’s story. “Two days prior to this funeral, my cousin Kirky, he’s already got his Crip [gang] homies at the funeral,” he said in an interview last year. “He called my brother and asked him would he jump in if him and his homies jumped me at the funeral…He’s already plotting on me. When I get there, I’m thinking the funeral and the death of his sister would calm all that. When I see him, I shake his hand, I go sit down and tell him I love him…Mo money, mo problems. Now, my family is my worst enemy.”
The rapper has not yet filed a response to the suit.
