The Game begs courts to keep $20M suit against Viacom alive in sexual abuse case

MAKE ‘EM PAYYYYYY….

How We Do” rapper, The Game, is doing everything in his power to hold Viacom responsible for hiring the felonious woman who sued him for several million dollars on the grounds he molested her during the filming of his VH1 series, She Got Game.

Though in November, the 37-year-old “One Blood” boomer was order to fork over a staggering $7.1 million civil judgement for allegedly imposing emotional, physical, and psychological damages upon his sexual assault, Priscilla Rainey, it seems the Compton creative won’t be shelling out one red cent to his complainant unless a judge denies requests made from Viacom–overseers of the cable network on which his short-lived reality competition show aired– to have his negligence lawsuit against the company tossed out.

Earlier this month, according to Bossip, The Game’s legal reps filed documents begging the courts to keep his suit– in which he trolls Viacom for improperly screening Priscilla, who boasts a criminal past, before awarding her a contestant’s position on his dating show– in play, though the company argues that the case violates it’s right to free speech.

“Despite having knowledge and being fully aware of several concerning ‘red flags’ in the background of a contestant named Priscilla Rainey, including multiple arrests for retaliatory acts against men, the defendants allowed Rainey to participate on the show,” lawyers for the “Wouldn’t Get Far” rhymer wrote.

The West Coast staple furthers his plight claiming Viacom reps never warned him of Priscilla’s sordid history nor did they get his approval for her to be on the show.

He reportedly feels the company should have protected him from ol’ girl and ensured that all contestants were fit to participate in the series.

While maintaining that he NEVER sexually harassed Priscilla–who he believes vengefully filed the lawsuit against him after being prematurely kicked off of the She Got Game set for fighting with her competitors– Game alleges that Viacom’s “intentional, negligent and/or reckless” decision to add her on the show is the leading catalyst for all of this legal rigmarole; thus they should be held financially responsible.

In addition for to passing Priscilla’s hefty $7.1 million payout off to Viacom, he is also said to be seeking an extra $13 million in damages from the company.

While awaiting the judge’s decision in his negligence case, Game is simultaneously appealing hizzoner’s ruling in his alleged victim’s favor.

Lawyers for Viacom and the “Hate It Or Love It” lyricist are due back in court next month.
