theJasmineBRAND.com exclusively reports, The Game has been ordered to show up in court to face off with the woman accusing him of sexual assault. The judge presiding over the case has instructed both parties that they are to meet and attempt to settle the $10 million dollar lawsuit before it heads to trial.
As previously reported, a woman named Priscilla Rainey – who was a contestant on the VH1 dating reality show, “She’s Got Game” – filed suit against rapper The Game for $10 million dollars last August.
Rainey explained that she shot the show in May of this year. She said one night she was led to believe it was mandatory to go on an after-hours date with the rapper. However, the woman claimed that she was taken to a local bar in Illinois where The Game was out of control and highly intoxicated on drugs and alcohol.
She said that during the night, The Game sexually assaulted her on several occasions — including him forcefully reaching his hand inside her dress to rub her bare vagina and buttocks. The contestant explained she never gave him permission to touch her and she felt degraded by the sexual assault.
The woman filed the $10 million dollar suit saying she suffered physical, psychological and emotional damages due to the rapper’s actions.
Rainey was granted her motion for a default which means she could continue the process of getting a default judgement. However, before she could file a motion the rapper had his legal team head to court to respond to the allegations in the complaint.
The Game accused Rainey of lying about being sexually assault by him during filming of his reality show.
The rapper denied that he was highly intoxicated on alcohol and drugs on the night in question or that he assaulted Rainey by forcefully reaching his hand inside her dress to rub her vagina and buttocks.
On April 1st, the judge in the case ordered both The Game and Rainey to physically appear for a settlement conference on June 16th, where they are to try and resolve the lawsuit before it heads to trial.
The judge notes that if the rapper doesn’t show up to the hearing he will be sanctioned by the court.
Also, the order states, “The parties are cautioned that the settlement conference is not a media event and communications regarding settlement are confidential.” … clearly a stern warning to both parties to not make this a social media event and to take it serious due to the allegations in the complaint.
