50 Cent And The Game Hit With $280 Million Lawsuit

50 CENT and his protege THE GAME have been hit with a $280 million (GBP147 million) lawsuit by a man who alleges they assaulted him earlier this year (JAN05).

KWASI JONES claims The Game, real name JAYCEON TAYLOR, and his entourage attacked him and a radio DJ after an interview at a station near Washington DC - and that he then rapped about it in the song HATE IT OR LOVE IT.

Jones tells US TV show CELEBRITY JUSTICE, "I'm still trying to get over the situation and the song doesn't help."

Jones claims tempers flared after The Game's manager thought the DJ was making fun of his hi-tech earpiece by making a STAR TREK Vulcan sign.

Kwasi says they escaped into an office, but when he went back to get a mobile phone the attack took place.

He says, "Next you know I'm being choked from behind very, very hard, to point where I'm blacking out. But just to be choked like that, you know it was intentional. I think it was to kill me."

On Jones' behalf, attorneys STEPHANIE MORAN and GREGORY WATSON are suing The Game, 50 Cent and the record labels of DR DRE and EMINEM for $280 million, alleging assault and battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress and negligence for the alleged beating and the ensuing song.

Moran notes, "The irony of this is in The Game's song, he says, 'Hate it or love it, the underdog's on top.' Well, he's really going to hate it when my client Mr Jones ends this on top."

Prosecutors in Prince George's county, Maryland, have formally charged The Game with assaulting the DJ.
