The Game Loses Appeal In Sexual Assault Case
The Game Sexual Assault: The Game has lost out on his appeal in an ongoing sexual assault case with Priscilla Rainey, a former reality show contestant.
TMZ reports, that the West coast legend was ordered to pay $7 million dollars in damages. According to Legal documents from an Illinois Federal Appeal court, he was also denied a new trial.
The case originated from the 2015 allegation where Rainey claims the ‘One Blood’ hitmaker sexually assaulted her during the taping of his dating reality show She’s Got Game. Quickly pressing charges following her departure from the taping, in court documents, Rainey stated she was non-consensually groped by an intoxicated Game.
She described the incident, saying the rapper was “…forcefully reaching his hand inside her dress to rub her bare vagina and buttocks.”
Game lost the original ruling years ago and has been appealing the verdict through lower-level courts since. Back in July, Game’s music royalties were seized to begin the payment. In the past, Game labeled Rainey “Thristy” but has yet to comment on the final ruling.
The court announced the decision Thursday, more than four years after the plaintiff filed the civil suit.
The rapper is set to release a december album.
