He was 65
The Game’s father has passed away. According to TMZ George Taylor died in his sleep on Wednesday Jan. 17.
The Game’s relationship with his father was strained at times. He admitted that his father stepped out on their family when he was young in several songs. However, they had reconnected in The Game’s adult life. The rapper has yet to comment on his father’s passing, though fans are leaving their condolences on his most recent social media posts.
Via TMZ‘s coverage of the situation:
“We’re told a family member found him unresponsive in his home in Apple Valley, CA … and alerted a neighbor who called 911. The Fire Dept. arrived at 8:30 AM this morning. He was unresponsive, and transported to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.”
The Game’s father passing is another stumbling block in what’s been a terrible few months for the rapper. The rapper is being sued over a long-ago fight with rapper 40 Glocc and was recently accused of impregnating a minor.
40 Glocc got the stuffing knocked out of him by The Game years back. The rapper gleefully recorded the fight and was hit with a lawsuit for the beating. Glocc won, obviously, and The Game was ordered to pony up six figures. But Glocc says he never paid, so he just hit the rapper with a new lawsuit seeking the original settlement plus interest.
Glocc wants $216K for the fight and the time he’s been kept waiting.
What do you think?
As if that wasn’t enough bad press coming from Glocc, he also shared a series of Instagram posts that purported to show conversations between Glocc and a 14-year-old girl that The Game impregnated. According to Glocc’s wild and unverified story, The Game had sex with a 14-year-old in the U.K. who became pregnant. Then, the rapper paid off the girl to keep quiet about the whole thing.
Check out an example of 40 Glocc’s breathless “reporting” below:
“PEDOPHILE ALERT GAYME – YOU CAN’T MISTAKE A 14yrs OLD LITTLE GIRL FOR AN ADULT… & BUY HER A PLANE TICKET TO THE U.S.A. FOR HE 15TH BIRTHDAY TO [SLEEP] WITH HER & MAKE A BABY..
