Judge Orders The Game To Pay $7.1 Million For Alleged Sexual Assault

In just a few weeks to go for his last studio album lunch, ‘Born2 Rap‘ the iconic superstar The Game lost a lawsuit which demands him to pay a whooping $7.1million.

The Game failed to appear in court to defend himself against the accusation on Thursday October 17. Not appearing resulted in the default judgement against him. A similar incidence occurred on 31 August 2018 which the rapper failed to appear in court that led the Chicago federal judge, Gary Feinerman refusal to grant him a new trial after his attorney requested for continuance.

Judge Orders The Game To Pay $7.1 Million For Alleged Sexual Assault

In May 2015, Priscilla Rainey a contestant on The Game reality show filed a lawsuit against the rapper. Priscilla stated that she was sexually assaulted by The Game during a scene of the TV reality show “She’s Got The Game“. She stated, The Game nuzzles her (private part) and buttocks by lifting her skirt during a scene in a sports bar in Markham, Illinois in front of a large audience. Rainey further explained how humiliated and, ashamed she felt after the rappers act, which she described as disrespecting to her personality.

During the court hearing last Thursday 17th October 2019, the judge ruled on Rainey’s favor and awarded her $7.1 million in punitive and compensatory damages. The 7th Circuit Court of Appeals again found that, The Game’s behavior is “truly egregious” due to his history of not appearing for court hearing.

The official legal document of the case can be viewed here.

The Game’s legal name is Jayceon Taylor. This means that, all the fortune Jayceon Taylor made from his (herb) business in addition to the one he will be making from his last studio album drop ‘Born2 Rap‘ in the coming weeks will go to Rainey. This is a huge bomb shell for the rap legend, that’s sad!
