TakeOff‘s mother — or as the late rapper’s signature ad-lib would go, “Momma” — has filed a lawsuit against the Houston bowling alley where her son was killed last year.
According to Billboard, Tatiana Davenport filed a wrongful death suit on Wednesday (June 7) 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 believes 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, who is listed as the administrator of the Migos rapper’s estate, is seeking $1million in damages as a result of the lawsuit.
“Defendants breached their duty owed to Kirsnick Khari Tiquon Ball by failing to exercise ordinary care to keep the premises safe,” the lawsuit continues.
“As a proximate and foreseeable result of Defendants’ negligence, Kirsnick Khari Tiquon Ball sustained catastrophic personal injuries, endured conscious pain and suffering, experienced mental anguish, became aware of his impending death, wrongfully died, and suffered other damages as will be proven at trial.”
TakeOff‘s alleged murderer, Patrick Xavier Clark, was formally charged with the rapper’s death last month. The Harris County District Attorney’s Office in Texas told KHOU-11 that Clark was officially indicted on murder charges by a grand jury.
Clark was originally released on $1million bond back in January following his arrest for the death of the late rapper. As part of his bond agreement, Clark had to wear an ankle monitor and remain at his parents’ home in Houston, while also avoiding contact with TakeOff’s family.
