Takeoff‘s mother is reportedly suing the owners of the Houston venue where the Migos rapper was tragically shot and killed last year.
According to Rolling Stone, Takeoff’s mom Titania Davenport filed the lawsuit in Harris County, Texas, court against the owners of 810 Billiards & Bowling, alleging that the defendants failed to provide proper security on the night of Takeoff’s death.
Takeoff was shot dead in the early hours of Tuesday, November 1, 2022. The 28-year-old artist, whose real name was Kirsnik Khari Ball, was playing with Quavo at a bowling alley in Houston at around 2:30 am when he was shot. Takeoff was pronounced dead at the scene, while Quavo was unharmed.
The lawsuit, obtained by Rolling Stone, states that on Halloween night 2022, “the facility and premises were rented by a well-known music personality”, the family of Rap-A-Lot CEO J. Prince, “with potentially many artists, popular athletes and public figures [in attendance].”
“Despite these facts, Defendants provided no screening mechanisms, no after-hour controls or security measures, and no enforcement of rules or industry standards to deter crime against their invitees, to include [Takeoff],” the lawsuit alleges.
“In fact, social media posting in advance of the party made it clear that not only basic security measures needed to be followed, but advance planning and consideration should have been taken into account, which Defendants were negligent in failing to do.”
