In July 2008, Compton rap star The Game made headlines when he assaulted a cousin while attending his sister’s July 5 funeral in California. Charges were immediately said to be pressed.
Over a year later, TMZ.com now reports that the cousin, Robert Kirkwood, has officially filed against the Interscope emcee and Black Wall Street CEO. The suit includes four other people, and states that the rapper got physical after the millionaire was confronted about not helping to pay funeral costs.
The suit is to cover personal damages, medical costs and more.
The suit comes within a month of The Game’s public verbal attack on Jay-Z, a story that’s made headlines in Rap media, entertainment media and even NPR financial analysis.
The Game has yet to comment on the suit.
