Compton rapper The Game has been gaining heavy media attention as of late, all while overseas on tour.
While most has come thanks to his on stage disses to Jay-Z, he’s recently gained attention because the UK police launched an investigation into him, in connection with an altercation with a fan.
According to reports, Game was performing at Liverpool’s O2 Academy last Wednesday (July 15), when a fan jumped on the stage for a photo. Instead of getting a photo with his favorite rapper, he got punched.
A member of the rapper’s entourage allegedly struck the man in the face, leaving him with lacerations and a broken cheek bone.
A witness told British tabloid the Daily Star, “He socked (punched) him when he got his camera out.”
The incident spawned an investigation by U.K. police. At press time, it’s unclear whether charges are expected to be filed against the member of Game’s entourage.
His Lamborghini Tour is scheduled to continue as planned. However, the negative attention that has surrounded the tour has caused authorities in other cities to make “special” preparations for Game’s arrival. Police in Rotorua, New Zealand are already primed for the rapper’s August 15th appearance in the city, saying that they have set up a “special operation” to deal with the rapper’s show at the Rotorua Sportsdrome.
The tour runs through August, and will make stops this week in Amsterdam, Germany, Denmark, Sweden and head on to France and Australia next month.
