The Game Wants $13 Million From Viacom Over Sexual Assault
(AllHipHop News) The Game is taking Viacom media bosses to court after he lost a $7.1 million sexual assault lawsuit brought against the rapper by a contestant on his dating reality show.
Contestant Priscilla Rainey filed a $10 million suit against the Dreams star in August, 2015, claiming she was assaulted while filming a scene in a Los Angeles bar for “She’s Got Game,” in which women competed for the MC’s affection.
The Game, real name Jayceon Taylor, denied the accusations, but he lost the case in November after health issues kept him from attending the trial.
His last-minute request for a postponement was denied and a default judgment was handed down in Rainey’s favor.
According to TMZ.com, the rapper alleges Rainey should never have been allowed on the show because she had a long criminal history, including felony arrests for aggravated battery, and was even highlighted by a doctor working on the production as a possible troublemaker.
“In moments of jealousy, (Rainey’s) normal composure dissolves, leaving her to acting out of control,” reads the doctor’s report, which was included in The Game’s lawsuit.
The hip-hop star alleges show bosses ignored the advice and hired Rainey to add a little drama to the show, which she was eventually booted from, before going public with her accusations against The Game.
He is now demanding Viacom chiefs cover the costs of the default judgment, and award him another $13 million in damages for putting him in the situation.
