The Game seeking lawyers’ fees in sexual assault lawsuit

Rapper The Game is seeking payment for lawyers’ fees in his sexual assault lawsuit.
The Dreams hitmaker, real name Jayceon Taylor, was sued for $10 million (£7 million) by Priscilla Rainey, a contestant on his U.S. reality series She’s Got Game, in 2015. She claimed The Game assaulted her while filming a scene in a Los Angeles bar as part of the show, in which women competed for the rap star’s affection.
He lost the case in late 2016 and a $7 million (£4.9 million) default judgement was handed down in Rainey’s favour.
She filed documents on 1 March (18) claiming she hasn’t seen any money from the hip-hop star, and asked a judge to hold him in civil contempt for refusing to comply with the judgement.
Rainey also allegedly conducted her own investigation into The Game’s finances using third parties and claimed to have evidence to suggest he is diverting millions of dollars in income to avoid having to pay up. She also claimed she has tried multiple times to obtain his financial records from his legal team and asked a judge to make him appear in court and testify about his income and assets.
However, The Game is now insisting he did respond to her request to answer questions about his finances and is asking the judge to deny her civil contempt motion. He is also asking her to pay his lawyers’ fees.
According to Bossip, a judge will rule on his requests next week (16Apr18).
