The Game’s Threats Against DJ Star Leads To $10 Million Lawsuit For ‘The Breakfast Club’
Last September, The Game’s comments to DJ Troi “Star” Torain on The Breakfast Club stirred up a bit of newly-resurrected tension between the rapper, the former radio personality, and DJ Envy. Responding to Envy’s past feud with DJ Star, The Game offered to handle the situation in a rather aggressive manner: by breaking Star’s jaw. This has led to a $10 million lawsuit against The Breakfast Club, according to TMZ.
“Who was the dude on the radio out here? I told him, I was like, ‘I’ll break your jaw, dude,’” The Game said during an interview on The Breakfast Club. “I’m still gonna break his jaw when I see him. I never seen him since then.”
After catching wind of The Game’s threats, DJ Star filed a report with the NYPD, putting the rapper in danger of being arrested on his next trip to New York City. In a vlog response to the Breakfast Club, Star proposed legal action to the show’s parent companies Clear Channel, iHeartMedia, and Revolt, for “promoting” the interview. He also noted that DJ Envy took legal action against him in their feud.
“Game is really small potatoes,” he said. “The issue here is Clear Channel or iHeartMedia and Revolt promoting threats on my life by way of their platform. I’m not saying I’m gonna do anything. I’m not making any threats, but I’m asking you, the viewers, the listeners, should I let it slide or should I respond? In the same fashion that DJ Envy responded to me once upon a time. He ran right to the police, I have the paperwork. He signed the paperwork, he and his wife.”
Star also gave his side of the story regarding his history with The Game, claiming that the rapper’s ill feelings began with a denied interview.
“I passed on letting Game come on my show, and that’s what Game’s tight about. The fact the hater, Star, rejected him. I wasn’t so much that 50 and I were cool, but I just felt the Game was a f**kin ‘hothead,” he said.
The Breakfast Club and The Game have yet to respond to reports regarding the lawsuit. Refresh your memories below:
