A judge has ordered that rapper The Game won’t see a dime of his music royalties until a $7 million judgment is paid off.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, a Los Angeles judge granted a motion brought by Priscilla Rainey, which will allow her to collect any money that comes in for The Game from his record label or royalties paid to him.
The order states, “Any and all rights, title, and interest of Defendant from the following companies in the form of, among other things, commission, royalties, contract receivables, deferred compensation, income, wages, payroll, salary, and accounts receivable: Sound Exchange, Inc., 733 10th Street NW, 10th Floor, Washington, D.C. 20001; and Entertainment One U.S. LP, Attn: Michael Healy, 22 Harbor Park Drive, Port Washington, NY 11050. “
The judge said any money owed to The Game will be paid directly to Rainey. The order warns the rapper if he fails to comply with the court order he may be found in contempt of court.
Earlier this year, Rainey asked a judge to assign her all rights, title, and royalties to any money or payments owed to The Game. She explained The Game is set to release his new album “Born to Rap” later this year.
Rainey said he still owes her $7,254,123.18 on the court judgment she won and wants all his “Born to Rap” royalties to be paid to her until the debt is settled.
She also pointed out that the rapper has blasted her on social media and publicly claimed he has no intention of paying her. Rainey asked for the court to award her the royalties.
Priscilla Rainey was a contestant on The Game’s VH1 reality show “She’s Got Game.” In her 2015 lawsuit, she claimed that during production the rapper sexually assaulted her by forcefully reaching his hand inside her dress to rub her bare vagina and buttocks.
A jury awarded her $7 million in damages.
Rainey has accused the rapper of not paying a dime on the judgment and refusing to turn over information about his finances.
