The Game -- Ordered to Pay $50K for Funeral Brawl

1/8/2011 8:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The Game just lost BIG in his ongoing family feud -- an L.A. judge ordered the rapper to cough up over $50,000 ... for allegedly beating the crap out of his cousin at a funeral two years ago.

You'll recall ... The Game's cousin Robert Kirkwood sued the rapper in 2008 -- claiming Game assaulted him at his sister's funeral ... when Kirkwood confronted the rapper about not paying for some of the ceremony costs.

The official judgment was entered a few months ago in L.A. County Superior Court, ordering Game -- real name Jayceon Taylor -- to pay up $50,580 for Kirkwood's medical expenses and other damages.

According to Kirkwood's attorney, The Game hasn't paid anything yet. Calls to The Game haven't been returned.

You know how these celebs get broke? By supporting their friends and family. Legions of people are living off of them already just to keep their careers going; lawyers, accountants, agents, managers, roadies, dancers, musicians, etc. If they start paying for every relatives rent, car note, birth, death, wedding, etc. They won't have anything left. Just ask Mike Vick, Mick Tyson, MC Hammer. The list goes on and on. His cousin was out of line for approaching him about money at a funeral. Too bad Game stooped to his level.

#7 THE FEELING I GET IS THE GAME WAS APPROACHED PRIOR AND AGREED TO PAY PART OF COSTS BUT DINT WHEN IT CAME DOWN TO IT. SO HIS CUZ APPROACHED HIM AT THE FUNERAL AND GOT BEATEN DOWN. $50K?? THE GAME IS STUPID. HE SHOULDA PAID FOR THE FUNERAL. WOULD BE WAAAY LESS. THIS IS A PERFECT CASE HOW STUPIDITY COSTS U MORE THAN DOING THE RIGHT THING.

I have a sneaking feeling that because they thought The Game was going to pay for it, they went all out without any concern for cost. If that is true, I agree with him. Family seems to always be the first to try to destroy or take advantage.

just my opinion    

Why should he have to pay cause he rich if he didnt have money what would have the family done, futher more they should have some life insurance not depending on a rich family member. People just talkin crap cause he famous but not looking at the reality of it all.
