The West Coast rapper, who loves the kids, was spotted throwing down on the basketball court and now, sources have allegedly spoken out about the situation.
Though it’s clear that The Game punched the opposing player, the events that led up to the incident aren’t as easy to decipher. TMZ reports that sources say the father of three was threatened with a gun, and ended up having no choice but to swing because it was “punch or be punched.”
According to the site:
Sources connected to Game tell us the rapper says the punchee started things by throwing an elbow at Game … who responded by elbowing him right back. Then it got really heated — Game claims the guy said don’t make me go to my gym bag because … “I got that thing.”
The clear hint was the guy had a gun.
What happened next was a case of punch or be punched — we’re told Game is saying the guy raised his fist first, and that’s when Game threw his Tyson-tatted right hand.
It goes on to say:
The video doesn’t appear to back up Game’s claim about the guy being first to make a fist. Game denies making any death threats as the victim claimed to cops. Police are still investigating.
Break it up, fellas…We’re just glad no one got seriously hurt. Check out the footage here.
