The Game tried to have a retrial regarding his sexual battery case but his attempt has failed. Unfortunately for him, he still has to pay $7.1 million to Priscilla Rainey, a former contestant on his 2015 dating show She’s Got Game. Rainey had accused Game of forcibly touching her during an off-camera date during the show.
Last week, the Seventh Circuit Court upheld the decision and denied his request for a trial continuance. Rainey had won the lawsuit back in 2016.
During their date at Chicago’s Adrianna’s Sports Bar, Rainey alleged that Game was under the influence and forced his hand under her skirt and touched her genitals and buttocks.
According to her complaint, Game was “out of control, highly intoxicated on alcohol and drugs (which was typical), and sexually assaulted plaintiff on several occasions that night.”
Rainey confronted Game on camera and after he threw her off the bus, she spoke to the film crew about what happened to her.
“What you can do is be a woman and shut up, like you can shut up right now,” Game said to Rainey.
Rainey continued to describe what Game did to her and he then shouted “Get off this bus before you get your a** strangled!”
The Game maintains his innocence and said Rainey accused him of this because she was upset she was eliminated from the show. The L.A rapper lost the case because he never attended court during the four-day trial. He tried to delay the trial saying he had a severe dental issue but his attempts failed.
“The video had obvious probative value on the key question before the jury: whether to credit Rainey’s testimony that Taylor sexually assaulted her. Taylor’s reaction when she confronted him is telling,” Judge Diane Sykes said in a 19-page memo. “When she finally spilled the details of the assault, there is no denial; instead, Taylor erupted in a torrent of profanities, ordered her off the bus, and threatened to ‘strangle’ and ‘choke’ her. This conduct reflects consciousness of guilt.”
