The Game Sued for $12 Million After Fight on Basketball Court
A seemingly innocent game of basketball could cost the Game more than $12 million.
In March, the 35-year-old rapper was involved in a fight with an off-duty LAPD police officer at a basketball game in Los Angeles. Game punched Onyebuchi Awaji in the face after he apparently threatened the rhymer by insinuating he had a gun and elbowed him throughout the game.
After Awaji filed a lawsuit against Game in April, now he's added new legal documents to the case, which find him seeking over $12 million for pain and suffering amongst other issues, TMZ reports.
Since Awaji says he's suffered physical, emotional and financial hardship, he wants $1,000,000 for pain and suffering, $100,000,000 for emotional distress, $50,000 for current medical expenses, $100,000 for future medical expenses and $10,000,000 in punitive damages. That's one expensive punch.
Despite the lawsuit being filed two months ago, The Documentary 2 creator has not responded to the claims.
In a video of the incident, Game is shown sucker punching Awaji. The "Hate It or Love It" rhymer has yet to address the suit publicly. Is this a case of self-defense or did the West Coast MC react without cause? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
