Game Sued For $12 Million By Off-Duty Cop – Tha Wire [VIDEO]
Rapper/actor/reality star Game has got himself in some hot water, stemming from an incident that took place in March. Game, who's real name is Jayceon Taylor, got into a verbal altercation during a pick-up basketball game with an off-duty cop, Onyebuchi Awaji. Witnesses say things started getting a little rough between the two and they began a brief back and forth confrontation.
TMZ reports, the cop told Game "don't make me go to my bag and get that thing." At which point the rapper immediately responded and punched the cop in the face with a square-on, devastating blow. Peep the video below.
OUCH!!! That hurt to even watch. This week, the rapper turned himself in and was booked on suspicion of felony criminal threats. The 35-year old rapper posted $50,000 bail and was released a couple of hours later. While an investigation continues to look into the incident, Awaji has filed a $12 million lawsuit against Game.
AllHipHop reports the officer claims he did nothing to instigate the March 29 altercation with Game and that the rapper sucker punched him, causing him brain damage. So, he's suing the West Coast MC for $1 million in damages, another million for pain and suffering, $50,000 in medical expenses, $100,000 for future medical expenses and $10 million for punitive damages.
Finally, the Associated Press reports it's official rap icon Master P's bringing his family to reality TV. Be on the look-out for Master P's Family Empire to premiere on the small screen in November on the Reelz Network.
The No Limit mogul told the Press he's hoping to bring a more positive spin to reality TV saying, “We’re about to make it cool to watch good, positive, family TV.” Like P said, his new reality show will give fans a look at what family life at the Miller house is all about. Cameras will go behind the scenes, filming P juggling work and raising his youngest two sons, Mercy, 12, and Hercy, 10, guiding his older kids 18-year old Cymphonique, 22-year old Veno and Romeo, 25 through the world of entertainment.
