LisaRaye Sides With The Game After He’s Accused Of Sexual Assault: “Don’t Let Career Criminals Distract You”
Jayceon “The Game” Taylor’s new reality show, “She’s Got Game,” is set to premiere this evening, and while we knew that the series would probably be a trainwreck, we never would have imagined that off-screen scandals would precede the premiere of the show. As previously reported, Taylor was accused of sexually assaulting game show contestant Priscilla Rainey in a newly filed lawsuit. VH1 has remained mum regarding the lawsuit; however, a friend of the reality star, actress LisaRaye McCoy, has come forward to pledge her allegiance to the Compton rapper.
Over the weekend, McCoy took to Instagram to encourage Taylor not to get caught up in the negativity, writing:

McCoy isn’t the only celebrity to weigh in on the lawsuit. Last week, Amber Rose also chimed in when she slammed a media outlet for reporting on Rainey’s colorful criminal record.
At this point, we’re not really sure what to think about any of this, but we’re hoping that the truth will be exposed.
Earlier today, we told you that Jayceon “The Game” Taylor was hit with a $10,000,000 lawsuit filed by a contestant on his new VH1 dating show, “She’s Got Game,” who alleged that he sexually assaulted her.
Shortly after the news went viral, Amber Rose sounded off in the comments section of Baller Alert’s Instagram page regarding the publication’s report on alleged victim Priscilla Rainey’s criminal record.
“This caption is victim blaming @balleralert. Her past has nothing to do with him touching her inappropriately. This is why rape victims and women that get sexually assaulted sit in silence. If he did it, then he did it. If she’s lying, then she’s lying. God will handle that, but this caption is ridiculous! Everyone is going in on this girl calling her a hoe! That’s probably why she was scared to say anything in the first place and continued to promote a show she wasn’t happy with. I’m disappointed at whoever wrote this.”
Interestingly, Taylor, who hasn’t even released an official statement regarding the lawsuit, responded to the socialite on Instagram, writing:
“@amberrose Leave it to you to defend a slut whom I’ve never touched inappropriately in my life. #1 this was the thirstiest broad on the show… She threw her nasty tw-t at me for 5 weeks straight & because I didn’t like her vagina strip eyebrows havin ass, she concocts a story & is suing me for 10 million dollars ??? A f-kin joke & a 1/2….She signed up for the show like all the other girls knowing damn well what she was getting herself into…A show where not one girl was disrespected by myself or anyone else…Yet, this nut job of a chicken says I touched her vagina?? Hoe please, if I did… her thirsty ass would’ve loved it, but I didn’t so fact remains, this chick is crazy & the show, vh1 & the entire cast knows it… But that’s the new way of the world, sue somebody for money you didn’t work for & try to come up…. Shout out to all the women of the world who wake up & go to work & get it the honest way… & shout out to all the women without vagina strip eyebrows…. This b-tch ain’t getting a dime & to Amber, once again… RELAX… I’m taking it easy for now.”
There’s no guessing how this will all unfold, but it has the potential to get extremely ugly.
Jayceon “The Game” Taylor’s new dating show, “She’s Got Game,” hasn’t even premiered yet, and VH1 already has a major scandal on their hands. According to TMZ, one of the show’s contestants is accusing the Compton rapper of sexual assault.
In a new lawsuit filed with the state of Illinois, Priscilla Rainey alleges that Taylor sexually assaulted her on May 22. According to Rainey, the alleged assault went down while they were filming a date scene at a sports bar. She charges that the rapper was “out of control,” drunk and high on drugs.
The model claims that she was sexually assaulted several times during the outing, including when Taylor allegedly “forcefully reaching his hand inside her dress to rub her bare vagina and buttocks.”
Raining is demanding $10,000,000 in damages. So far, Taylor has not commented on the lawsuit.
VH1 has been winning in the reality TV game for quite some time now. Before “Love & Hip Hop” and “Basketball Wives,” series like “Flavor of Love” and “I Love New York” dominated the network’s programming. Thankfully, they’ll be returning to their dating game show roots this August. Earlier this year, we told you that “Marrying The Game” star Jayceon “The Game” Taylor would be returning to the network with a new series titled “She’s Got Game.” Similar to “Flavor of Love,” 10 contestants will be tasked with winning the heart of the 35-year-old rapper.
The network recently dropped a trailer for the series, which premieres August 10, and surprisingly, the engagement ring (or a replica of the ring) that once belonged to Taylor’s ex-fiancée, Tiffney Cambridge, makes a major cameo.
“I lost the best thing that ever happened to me,” Taylor says in the trailer while holding the ring. “But now, I think I’m ready to find that special someone.”
As you may recall, Taylor and Cambridge’s relationship issues were put on display for several seasons of “Marrying The Game” before they finally called off the engagement. So yeah, Taylor is now trying to recreate that magic with someone new.
It’s unclear if the contestants are simply competing for a chance to date the rapper, or if a marriage proposal is actually being offered. But what is clear is that VH1 is playing all types of games with this trailer!
Watch the sneak peek below and let us know your thoughts.
Fans of “The Game” can now breathe easy because they will be receiving a proper farewell from the series after a 10-year run. This evening at the BET Awards, cast members of the series, including Pooch Hall, took the stage and confirmed that Melanie and Derwin will be making cameos for the series finale.
“It’s official, ya boy is back,” Hall said. “But yo, it’s not just me. Melanie is also back on ‘The Game’ for the finale.
Unfortunately, Tia Mowry was not present, but according to Hall, she planned to attend but had to stay home because she is feeling under the weather.
“Tia wanted to be here, but Tia fell ill, so Tia feel better. We love you, and that’s what’s up,” he continued.
News of the reunion is pretty shocking considering that Mowry told fans early on that she would not be partaking the final season.
“The [love] I am receiving from fans of Melanie on ‘The Game’ is so amazing and touching! I couldn’t just ignore,” Mowry wrote on Facebook. “I had amazing 5 yrs on the show and feel so blessed to be have been a part of it:) Many are asking if I am making a return for the last year, and the answer is no. But again, I felt so blessed, so blessed, to have played Melanie Barnett!#melanieandderwinforever.”
We’re thrilled to see that she has experienced a change of heart.
So, will you be tuning in to BET on August 5 to catch Melanie and Derwin together one last time?

Exclusive: Wendy Raquel Robinson Says Constant Criticism Of “The Game” Hurt: “I Was Very Sensitive To The Fans”
In June, BET’s hit show The Game will premiere its ninth and final season. After a whole host of cast shake-ups and storyline mixups, one constant presence throughout the show’s run has been actress Wendy Raquel Robinson. She plays Tasha Mack on the show, the mother of football star Malik Wright (Hosea Chanchez) and the sassy businesswoman trying to build her management company from the ground up. After all these years and all those episodes, Robinson will miss the series, and most importantly, she will miss her cast members, many of which she says she’s built a lifelong bond with. What she won’t miss though, is the criticism the show has received over the years. After starting strong on The CW only to be canceled and revived by BET, many fans of the show felt that once it came to the network, the quality of the program decreased. Premiering on BET with an unusual leap forward in time, from there, the storyline included too many changes and wild plot twists for some original viewers. Many had been complaining about the series since it returned in 2011, and things only got worse when it decided to move forward without original lead cast members Tia Mowry and Pooch Hall. Robinson admits that such criticism was often tough to deal with and at the end of the day, she just wanted to do the job she was hired to do.
So we chatted with the lovely actress about that and discussed her nonprofit organization, Amazing Grace Conservatory, which helps young people cultivate their skills in the performing arts. We also talked about what’s next for her, including a major role as Cruella de Vil, and her leading role in the new film, Mysterious Ways. In it, Robinson plays a grieving mother named Marilyn, whose life changes when she encounters a homeless man named Mozart, played by Gary Dourdan. In an effort to help Mozart get his life back on track, she is actually able to get her own life back on track and let go of her pain so that she can flourish. That film is currently available on the Urban Movie Channel. Check out the trailer for it, and our chat with Robinson.
Since Tiffney can’t seem to marry The Game, perhaps his celebrity friends can set him up with women for another reality show on VH1. Sound too messy to be true? Well, it’s happening.
Just today, the network sent out a press release confirming the new one-hour weekly series starring The Game as he embarks on his national summer tour.
Despite the fact that he was professing his love to Tiffney in February, saying he wanted her back, the rapper is now looking for a new woman. And he hopes to find her being turning the reigns over to some other people.
We all know The Game from his hit VH1 series “Marrying The Game” as an amazing father as well as family man, that goes without saying. But what we don’t know is if there is a woman out there that would satisfy him enough to slow him down. In the past we’ve seen him give being a family man his all, but sometimes in life and love other cards come into play. Now, in the new series “She’s Got Game,” The Game sets out in pursuit of his perfect love match while he embarks on a national tour. The 10-episode series is slated to premiere summer 2015.
Tired of picking the wrong women, in “She’s Got Game,” Taylor turns to his celebrity friends to see who can help him most when it comes to matters of the heart. Each celebrity will select a young woman to accompany Game on his national tour. But which women will succumb to the not-so-innocent rock star lifestyle, and which will have his back and ultimately win his heart?
The Game aka Jayceon Taylor also serves as one of the show’s executive producers.
We already know this is gearing up to be the hottest of messes, but will you watch?
