Rapper The Game was hit with a $280 million lawsuit brought by cameraman Kwasi Jones
Rapper the Game has once again involved in crime. The star, whose real name is Jayceon Taylor, has been hit with $280 million lawsuit by a cameraman, Kwasi Jones, who claims to suffer a physical and then verbal damage caused by the violance the star did to him.
Jones alleges he was battered, assaulted, grabbed by the neck and so severely choked by the Game and 20 members of the rapper's posse that he lost consciousness just because he wrongly joked about a cellphone earpiece worn by the Game's manager, Jimmie Henchman, during an interview at the Washington, D.C.-based station WKYS on January 21, 2005.
Regarding the incident, the Game has actually made a public apology to the D.C station on BET. But Jones, on the other hand, hold on his lawsuit, which was filed February 14 and named other defendants including 50 Cent, Aftermath Records, Shady Records and G-Unit Records.
