Rodney King's family may need help to pay for the funeral

According to TMZ, Rodney King’s family is finding it hard to cover the estimated $22,000 cost of his funeral. The family has issued a statement through their rep asking the public to contribute to a memorial fund that has been established.

Rodney King was not a wealthy man when he died … and now his family is asking the public for donations so they can pay for a proper burial for the infamous LAPD beating victim.

Despite the fact King scored a $3.8 million settlement from the City of L.A. after the 1992 incident, King’s family tells TMZ … there is basically no money left over to pay for his funeral costs, which are expected to run north of $22k.
