Mother of Takeoff Seeks $1 Million In Damages Against Houston Venue Where Rapper Was Killed

Titania Davenport, mother of late Migos member Takeoff, has filed a wrongful death suit against Houston bowling alley 810 Billiards & Bowling where the rapper was killed last November.

Seven months after the tragic death of Migos member Takeoff, the rapper’s mother, Titania Davenport has filed a wrongful death suit against the Houston venue where he was killed. In the lawsuit, filed on Wednesday (June 7), Davenport alleges that despite being notified of the party held on October 31, 2022, bowling alley’s property owners, along with several LLCs related to the business, “failed to provide proper and adequate security for the event.”

“Defendants breached their duty owed to Kirsnick Khari Tiquon Ball by failing to exercise ordinary care to keep the premises safe,” the lawsuit reads. The lawsuit also names J. Prince, who rented the venue for the “after-hours” event, which he also attended. Ball was shot at the event and died around 2:50 a.m. on November 1, when investigators say that the shooting also caused guests to flee the area. Disturbing footage in the aftermath of the shooting went viral on social media, showing Ball lying injured and possibly deceased, while Quavo is seen in distress and pleading for help.

The suit, in which Davenport seeks $1 million in damages, claims that the venue “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.”

“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,” the complaint continues.

The lawsuit lists 18 instances of negligence, saying that 810 Billiards & Bowling failed to provide “adequate and appropriate security personnel” and “negligently misrepresenting to invitees that the property was safe.”
