West Coast rapper Game will finally have to pay the price for getting into a physical altercation with his cousin at a 2008 family funeral.
According to reports, Game’s cousin shelled out over $50,000 from the rap star.
The Game just lost BIG in his ongoing family feud — an L.A. judge ordered the rapper to cough up over $50,000 … for allegedly beating the crap out of his cousin, Robert Kirkwood, at a funeral two years ago. The official judgment was entered a few months ago in L.A. County Superior Court, ordering Game — real name Jayceon Taylor — to pay up $50,580 for Kirkwood’s medical expenses and other damages. According to Kirkwood’s attorney, The Game hasn’t paid anything yet. (TMZ)
In August 2009, Game was sued by his cousin, Robert “Kirky” Kirkwood, over their physical 2008 brawl.
Robert Kirkwood just filed a lawsuit in L.A. County Superior Court, claiming the The Game and four others assaulted him at his sister’s funeral in July of ’08. The suit says the throwdown started when Robert confronted The Game because the rich rapper wouldn’t pay for a part of the funeral costs. Robert says he suffered “severe and permanent injuries” during the alleged fight. Robert is suing The Game — along with the four other people he claims took part in the fight — for medical expenses, loss of income and general damages. (TMZ)
Following the actual incident, Game gave his side of the story.
“Two days prior to this funeral, my cousin Kirky, he’s already got his Crip homies at the funeral,” Game said in an interview. “He called my brother Fase and asked him would he jump in if him and his homies jumped me at the funeral…He’s already plotting on me. When I get there, I’m thinking the funeral and the death of his sister would calm all that. When I see him, I shake his hand, I go sit down and tell him I love him…Mo money, mo problems. Now, my family is my worst enemy. I hate them more than I hate 50 Cent man.” (98.3 Jams)
Last summer, Game hit up Twitter and publicly revealed his disassociation with family.
“AYE, i gotta confession to make: F%$K FAMILY !!! from the bottom of my heart. Y’all think yall gone run me dry…. hit ya#brakelights hoe,” he wrote Monday (August 9) evening.
“Aint gotta piece of lint for you. QUESTION: how many of my “FAMILY” members came to see me when I was in the hospital all shot up ? THE ANSWER: 0.” (Game’s Twitter)
