Report: Brandon Jennings punched by rapper during birthday party

By Mike Singer | CBSSports.com

New Pistons point guard Brandon Jennings was reportedly punched in the face by rapper The Game while Jennings was celebrating his birthday at a club in Los Angeles this past weekend, according to HipHollywood.

Jennings was apparently celebrating his 24th birthday at Lure in LA -- one of the rapper's favorite spots -- and got into it with The Game after the two argued over who could use the deejay's microphone.

"[The Game] didn't like that Jennings was hogging the microphone. He felt like he was being disrespected," a witness told HipHollywood. Things escalated and that's when Jennings reportedly got hit.

The former Bucks point guard was acquired by Detroit in a sign-and-trade this offseason that netted Jennings a three-year, $25 million deal.

The Pistons open their preseason in two weeks against Israel's Maccabi Haifa.
