It was reported that Ball joined the suit as an Intervenor, an individual who was not named in the existing legal case, but has a personal stake in the outcome. The original lawsuit was filed by Takeoff’s mother, Titania Davenport, in June 2023.
“[Kenneth Ball], the natural parent of [Takeoff], has suffered substantial pecuniary loss both in the past and in the future. 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,” Ball’s lawyer Brant J. Stogner told AllHipHop in a statement.
Ball and Davenport are currently embroiled in a battle for their late son’s estate. As Takeoff died intestate, his $26 million estate will need to be divided between his next of kin, which would be his parents.
Takeoff, whose real name is Kirsnick Ball, was shot at a party at 810 Billiards & Bowling in November 2022 after an argument broke out, despite not being involved in the dispute himself. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
