Rapper Jayceon Taylor aka The Game, has been touched by tragedy … he has decided to pay for a 6 year old shooting victim’s funeral …
The Game has pledged 10,000 in funeral costs to the family of six-year-old, Tiana Ricks who was shot and killed when two men approached her family’s home in Moreno Valley and opened fire, striking Tiana and her father.
As she lay dying, Tiana reportedly turned to her father and asked,
“Are you okay, Daddy?”
The Game read about the tragedy and tweeted,
“This very sad story hit me in a place nothing ever has … Tiana did not know she was shot & kept asking was her father okay.”
TMZ spoke with Tiana’s mother Marquia Macklin who said,
“Game told me that he heard about my story and was really sorry. He said that he wanted to help out and put me in touch with his financial team. It costs so much to bury her … sadly $10,000 only covers half of the casket and the plot.”
The money is being sent over to the family today, for services taking place this Saturday.
