The woman who accused Takeoff of sexual assault wants his mother to take his place as defendant in his case
TakeOff‘s legal problems might not be over just because he’s no longer alive.
According to MyNewsLA.com, a lawsuit brought against the late Migos rapper for sexual assault in August 2020 may continue, despite the fact that the rapper was killed in November 2022.
The publication is reporting that the plaintiff in the suit is seeking to have TakeOff’s mother take her son’s place as the defendant in the case. The rapper’s mother Titiana Davenport is the acting administrator of the rapper’s estate, which is currently in probate proceedings in Georgia.
The plaintiff, currently identified only as Jane Doe, claimed in her suit that TakeOff sexually assaulted her at a June 2020 party in Encino.
The alleged victim claimed TakeOff basically stalked her during the party, before following her into a bedroom where he then raped her.
TakeOff’s attorney strongly denied the allegations at the time, and the rapper was not criminally charged over the alleged incident.
The L.A. County District Attorney’s office reportedly cited insufficient evidence as to the reason not to proceed with the prosecution.
The Jane Doe suit is not Davenport’s only legal issue. She is currently suing the owners of the Houston bowling alley where her son was killed.
Davenport filed a wrongful death suit this past June against the venue’s owners as well as the LLCs (810 Billiards & Bowling, LVA4Houston Greenstreet, Lionstone Partners, Midway Companies and Cushman & Wakefield of Texas) connected to the venue.
The lawsuit claims that the venue “failed to provide proper and adequate security for the event” and its owners “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.”
TakeOff (real name Kirshnick Ball) was shot and killed by a “stray bullet” to the head and neck area when a gunman opened fire outside the bowling alley following a dice game just shy of 3 a.m. ET on November 1, 2022.
Davenport is seeking $1million in damages as a result of the lawsuit.
