West coast rapper The Game has been ordered to pay a former reality show contestant a $7 million judgment in a $10 million sexual assault case that was originally filed in 2015 in Chicago, Illinois.
After four days of deliberation a jury found the 36-year-old rapper liable for damages in the sexual assault case filed by Priscilla Rainey, a former contestant on the rapper’s reality TV show ‘She’s Got Game’.
Game plans to file an appeal to either reduce or toss out the court’s judgment.
Rainey was handpicked for the show by reality show veteran Laura Govan.
The Game, whose real name is Jayceon Terrell Taylor, accused Rainey of retaliating against him after she was kicked off his show in May 2015.
The show aired from August 2015 through October 2015 before it was canceled.
Rainey filed the lawsuit claiming she suffered “physical, psychological and emotional damages” as a result of Taylor’s unwanted sexual advances.
In a court document, Rainey said she was led to believe she was going on a date with Taylor at an Illinois bar.
Once inside the bar, she said a “highly intoxicated” Taylor slid his hand up her dress and fondled her privates.
Taylor has denied rumors that he bedded — or attempted to bed — all of the contestants on his show.
