Even before he hit it big, Game was still the cock of the walk

Ah, family. You can always rely on them to have your back. That is, until you become famous and everyone starts spilling all your sordid secrets, telling the media and the world all the weird things you did to make ends meet before you were rich. 

Today in just that: Game's stepfather, Hodari Sababu, is claiming the Compton rapper was a male stripper at—get this—a joint owned by Game's mom. While speaking to Pitchfork TV, the supportive stepfather—who himself was once a Chippendales dancer—recounted a "male exotic club" he started with Game's mom back in the day. "Jayceon [Game's real name] danced there maybe twice and 50 Cent won't let him forget it," Sababu said. "And somehow somebody got pictures of him dancing in that club with his g-string on."

50 Cent used one of those aforementioned pics as the cover of a G-Unit mixtape back in 2006. At the time, most people gave Game the benefit of the doubt, assuming this strange photo was a dubious entry into the silly Game/50 Cent beef. But according to the rapper's disgruntled stepfather, that snapshot was straight from the male strip club.

"Whether he likes it or not, I'm telling the truth," Sababu says. "Fortunately or unfortunately, I'm not on the payroll, so I can tell you what I think. And if that makes you mad, then so be it."

Game shrugged off the stripper claim and denied that he even has a stepfather on Twitter: "Talkin bout he my stepfather? Bitch, my mama aint never been MARRIED!!!" he tweeted. "Mad cause I aint loan yo gay ass no $$$."

Family! Gotta love 'em. Or pay 'em off.

Despite it being on a Monday, anyone who is anyone showed up at last night's Emmy awards—from Stephen Colbert, Weird Al, Lena Dunham to so much more. Backstage, "The Voice" coaches Adam Levine and Gwen Stefani mingled with "Scandal" actress, Kerry Washington. Ah, to be part of the beautiful and famous crowd must be awesome, even hanging out backstage is cool!
