The Game Ordered to Pay $7 Million in Sexual Assault Case from Reality Show
The Game is being ordered to pay $7 million in a sexual assault case stemming from a 2015 incident on his reality show She Got Game, which mirrored The Bachelor.
TMZ first reported the amount that the rapper has been ordered to pay, although the alleged victim Priscilla Rainey had originally sued the Game for $10 million. The exact amount that he has been ordered to pay is $7.13 million in the judgement that was entered late last week.
Pitchfork obtained court documents that outlined the case, in which contestant Rainey accused The Game of groping her against her will when he was drunk. Rainey cited that he was “out of control” as well as drunk when the incident occurred. His defense cited that Rainey had been a sex worker, as well as a patient in a mental institution in an effort to discredit her.
The lawsuit was originally brought forth against the rapper last August and he failed to respond at first. Due to his lack of response, a judge ruled that he was liable by default.
Following the lawsuit, The Game put Rainey on blast in an Instagram rant that called her a “transvestite” and “dusty b*tch” who was never going to see the $10 million or even “anything close to it.”
VIBE reports the Instagram post from 2015, which read, “Don’t be fooled by these accusations or the dollar amount in the headlines ‘cause I put that on my favorite aunties poodle and this broad ain’t gettin’ shit! “Every girl on that show will tell u I never touched this chick or ever desired to be anywhere near her. She got kicked off the show & as a result she filed this lame lawsuit which was probably her intentions before the show was ever started. She was begging for my attention the entire time we shot that show & was given the ultimate Major League Baseball CURVE ball so that upset her & made her lil wee wee hard so she did what all the chicks like her do when life gives them no other options… They sue you! This is really a crying shame.”
Reportedly, the Game is going to appeal the decision.
