(CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Compton-based rapper The Game and members of his entourage are facing a lawsuit stemming from an incident at Radio One R&B/hip-hop WKYS in Washington, D.C. on January 21.
Kwasi Jones, a cameraman who was videotaping the Game’s in-studio interview with former WKYS evening personality Zxulu, alleged that he and Zxulu were attacked by the 20-member entourage after Zxulu made a remark regarding a cell phone earpiece worn by the Game’s manager, Jimmie Henchman.
According to court documents, Jones alleges that he was “battered, assaulted, grabbed by the neck and so severely chocked that he lost consciousness.” The Game later made a public apology to the Radio One station on BET.
Jones maintains that the apology was undermined shortly thereafter when the rapper boasted about the clash on a song remix. Jones suffered emotional distress as a result of the lyrics.
The lawsuit names the Game, his manager, 50 Cent, Aftermath Records, Shady Records, G-Unit Records, the Black Wallstreet, Radio One and the building’s owners and managers as defendants. –by CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
