The Game

Sued over Alleged Fight at a Funeral

8/1/2009 2:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0731_game_ex-1The Game's cousin wants the rapper to be coffin' up some serious cash -- and it's all over an alleged beat down that occurred at a freakin' funeral last year.

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 -- straight out of a Jerry Springer Halloween Special -- started when Robert confronted The Game because the rich rapper wouldn't pay for a part of the funeral costs.

Robert -- who hilariously refers to The Game in the suit as someone who "fashions himself as some kind of rapper, gangster and/or celebrity" -- 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.

Why is he just now suing and why does the cousin think that The Game has an obligation to pay for part of his sisters funeral? Just because someone in your family is a celebrity doesn't mean they have to support and pay for everyone else.

LOL@ "fashions himself as a rapper." Conceivably, that "fashioning" is why you expected him to be able to chip in. Bringing it up during the service was disrespectful.

That's sad if it's true. It's the brother's fault for acting like an ass at somebody funeral.

ALL rappers should be sued for something. The more that are sued, the fewer rappers will be left to irritate the general U.S. population.

He was so hurt, it took him a year to sue. Sounds like the Game must have assaulted him again recently. Maybe he picked up and listened to the Game's newest CD and had his ears assaulted.

i don't care if he is rich...he shouldn't have to chip in every time a cousin, cousin's neighbor, elementary school teacher, whoever dies...it should not have been brought up at the funeral, and he probably got in his face in front of everybody, calling him "cheap" or whatever trying to guilt him into paying something....shameless...and he's suing, not because he's hurt, but because he wants money

Fist off why would the Game pay for a " COUSINS" funeral? I mean after all its a cousin. Not like its a brother or a sister., mom or dad. Now if he OFFERED to pay that is a totally different story. Second. who the F fights at a funeral? NO SELF respecting person starts a fight at a wake, funeral or anything like that. If the game started the fight or even partook in the fight he should be ashamed of himself. BOOOO
