Brandon Jennings, the new Detroit Pistons point guard, reportedly got punched in his face at his own birthday party by a rapper in Los Angeles over the weekend.
Nothing has been verified, but the mouthy Jennings – my favorite thing about him is the YOUNG MONEY he has tattooed on his upper back – apparently decided he wanted to take over a club (Lure) by hogging the microphone and acting like he ran the joint. It was his birthday, and he recently signed a 3-year, $25 million deal, so I have no problem with this.
The Game, a burly rapper from Compton, had beef with this. You see, this regular party at Lure (Toxic) is apparently his usual spot and he didn’t like Jennings blabbing on the mic. According to Hip Hollywood, this happened:
“Game feels like Toxic is his, and he didn’t like that Jennings was hogging the microphone. He felt like he was being disrespected,” one person who witnessed the altercation tells us. “Game tried to have words with him, and it just escalated quickly and Game hit Brandon in the mouth,” another source says.
Let’s just be happy things didn’t escalate, because Jennings is a wiry dude who probably can’t hold his own, and the NBA season starts in a month. [Hip Hollywood via Herbie]
