Don’t you love to hear those stories about the celebrity that enters a restaurant, eats a big meal and then lays a big, fat tip on the lucky waiter? Well, here’s a story that doesn’t exactly follow that allegory.
The Game enjoyed an Easter Sunday meal at Capital Grille in West Hollywood and later tweeted that he left a $6,000 tip for his waiter, Eme Ikwuakor. The rapper even provided picture proof for his 1.1 million Twitter followers, by sending out a pic of Ikwuakor holding a large wad of cash.
Now the waiter is separating fact from fiction; Ikwuakor says he did consent to the picture and The Game did hand him a large bundle of cash. But, the waiter says the tip was only $250 dollars. Not that Ikwuakor is complaining, he called the sum, “very generous and much appreciated,” it just had a lot less zeros than what the rapper claimed.
Maybe The Game was enjoying an early April Fool’s Day joke?

In this real-life addition of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, things appear to be a bit turbulent on the relationship front for one of the sisters.
Rumors are currently swirling that Khloe Kardashian has stepped out on her marriage to Lamar Odom — at least emotionally.
Radaronline is reporting via Star Magazine that Khloe has cozied up to rapper The Game, who now is a fitness adviser to both she and her younger brother Rob Kardashian.
“They talk all the time,” a Kardashian source tells Star. “She even texts him while Lamar sleeps in their bed right next to her. The Game has been a rock for Khloe, listening to her problems, giving her advice and telling her she’s beautiful inside and out. He keeps saying she can do better than Lamar and she needs a man like him, who’d treat her like the queen she is.”
Some speculate that this is Khloe’s payback for Odom’s wifeless clubbing jaunts where he’s often seen with other women. But even so, word has it that the basketball star has still become very suspicious of his wife’s new BFF. It appears it might be with good reason; Khloe not only reportedly talks about The Game all the time, she also shared with her hubby that the rapper told her she had a nice a**.
Uh, can anyone say TMI?

Damn, Bad Santa!
The Game got jacked while trying to pick up the last items on his Christmas list on December 24th. He Tweeted that he was robbed of $75,000 worth of jewelry and other items from his car while he was shopping at the Westfield Topanga Mall in Canoga Park, California:
“Tried 2 do last minute shoppin 4 da kids & valet stole a Louis Duffle out @avanterose ’s car & we 2 chains & $75,000 short,” Game tweeted Christmas morning. What’s even worse is he claimed when the police came they thought he was the thief! He continued, “So police come & guess who get patted down ? Yea, US !!! then they tell us da palmtree was blocking the crime scene on the tape.”
As mad as he might’ve been, he’s on parole so he decided to keep the peace: “me or @avanterose couldnt do sh-t cuz both are dumb ass’s on parole. Ole’ Yes officer, No officer ass ni–as we was !!! Then after 4 hrs of no answers we drivin off & da most racist of all da cops gone say: ‘Thats a sweet ride man.’ WHAT ?!? B-tch, investigate.”
Crazy! The Game has been accused of fighting folks for less in the past so the night could’ve ended on a very ugly note, but luckily he didn’t let the fiasco steal his Christmas spirit. He ended the story saying: “If u scramble the words in SANTA u get SATAN. & with that being said, steer clear of the devil & let no one steal the joy of X-MAS from u.”

Has Ashanti gone from one fledging rapper to another?
Media Take Out claims an “extremely reliable source” (anyone with an internet connection or access to their local library) says Ashanti and The Game were getting extra comfortable with each other while working on Ashanti’s new album.
According to our snitch, Game is helping Ashanti with her new album. But when the two were together in the studio, they couldn’t stop flirting with each other. The insider told MediaTakeOut.com, “I think something’s going on.”
Time will tell . . .but that’s a good look for Ashanti . . .
It would be a good look if it were 2004, but in 2010 the relationship will get about as much life from the general public as a new Ja Rule record (sorry Ja, but you know it’s been a minute since the radio let you put it on ‘em).
Still, if it’s true at least some folks are happy – although Shani, I hope Game has settled down. Dude used to switch moods more than strippers switch hips during showtime.

The Game is not playing! For years the Compton rapper has been taking shots at Jay-Z, but he upped the ante recently (guess he really, really needs some publicity?) taking the drama overseas. In a concert in Madrid The Game repeatedly chanted “Fu–k Jay-Z….old ass ni–a” (and even got the crowd to join in!) before spitting a diss rap over Hov’s “D.O.A. (Death of Autotune)” beat. He let the low blows roll and even took shots at Beyonce rapping:
“This isn’t about Beef/This isn’t about Destiny/I’m in Madrid banging the c-p-t/You got a bad b–ch word?/Ain’t no pu–y like hers?/Just ask the Mavericks, Rockets, and the Spurs/ I mean… I mean my b–ch don’t slang p–sy like that.”
Wilin’! Now Jay has previously said that he won’t be responding to The Game’s taunts, but I wonder what he’ll have to say now that Bey’s name has been dragged into the picture?
In other crazy performance news: Lil’ Kim is scheduled to take the stage with Cyndi Lauper at a concert to honor South African President Nelson Mandela’s 91st birthday. All I want to know is who approved that!? While I’ve been know to get down to a Queen Bee song or two, somehow I can’t imagine the elderly Mandela rocking to “Big Momma Thang” overseas. Other performers include Stevie Wonder, Queen Latifah, Wyclef, Aretha Franklin, will.i.am and err T-Pain (doesn’t he seem a little out of place on this bill too? He better not wear that “Big A– Chain” he’s been rocking as of late!). Should be an interesting production to say the least.
Meanwhile, Lil Wayne’s being sued yet again for blowing off a concert. TMZ reports that Red City Entertainment is coming after Weezy for $432,000 for failing to appear at his own concert in the Bahamas (police went to check on the rapper when he didn’t show and found him unconscious). Wayne just canceled a European tour citing “health problems” earlier this month and has been sued for flaking on concerts in the past. I don’t know what’s wrong with this man, but I know one thing: with all these baby mamas and new tots on the way, he needs to stop playing and make that money. Those child support bills are about to start piling up real soon!
