Takeoff’s Dad Joins $1M Wrongful Death Lawsuit Amid Reports Of Estate Dispute

Takeoff's family's wrongful death lawsuit is getting complicated after his father joined the filing against the venue where the rapper was murdered.

Takeoff’s $1 million wrongful death lawsuit is reportedly getting complicated after his father made an additional filing against the venue where the Migos rapper was murdered.

Titania Davenport, Takeoff’s mother, has been locked in several legal battles related to her son’s fatal shooting in November 2022. In June 2023, Davenport filed a $1 million wrongful death suit against 810 Billiards and Bowling in Houston, where Takeoff was killed.

Davenport accuses the bowling venue of knowing about the private party Takeoff attended but failing to provide adequate security. But the case has gotten even more complicated after Takeoff’s father, Kenneth Ball, joined the lawsuit as an “Intervenor,” a third party who joins an existing legal case, All Hip Hop reports.

While Ball was not listed in Davenport’s original filing, he decided to join the case due to the personal effect Takeoff’s death had on him. Like Davenport, Ball is seeking at least $1 million from Billiards and Bowling for the death of his son.

“[Kenneth Ball], the natural parent of [Takeoff], has suffered substantial pecuniary loss both in the past and in the future,” Ball’s Houston-based lawyer Brant J. Stogner states.

“Indeed, [Ball] has suffered past and future pecuniary loss, including funeral and burial expenses, psychological and psychiatric expenses, loss of advice, loss of counsel, loss of services, loss of care, loss of maintenance, and loss of support.”

Takeoff, real name Kirsnick Khari Ball, died Nov. 1, 2022, at 28. He left behind no will and an estimated net worth of $28 million. In addition to the wrongful death suit, there are reports that Takeoff’s parents are battling it out over the late rapper’s estate via Madame Noire.

Davenport also might be listed as a defendant in a sexual assault lawsuit filed against Takeoff prior to this death. Meanwhile, 810 Billiards and Bowling is denying any wrongdoing in Takeoff’s death, citing the implications of Patrick Xavier Clark and Cameron Joshua, who were charged in connection with the shooting.

Clark was charged with murder, while Joshua was charged with possession of a firearm. The venue says it should not be held liable for the independent actions of the two men.
