The Game attempted to skip out on a court hearing — citing his appearance on the “Wild N’ Out” — but the judge wasn’t interested in his excuses and issued a warrant for his arrest.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, a judge found The Game in contempt of court for failing to appear for a hearing in his sexual assault case. The rapper had been ordered to show up, but he tried to claim he was too busy.
Earlier this week, The Game filed court docs saying he had contractual obligations during October, including the final stretch of “Nick Cannon Presents: Wild ‘N Out Live.”
Game claimed to have been trying to get all his financial information to turn over to Priscilla Rainey after he had been ordered to do. He asked the judge to allow his lawyer to represent him during the hearing.
The judge wasn’t impressed and instead found the rapper in contempt and issued a bench warrant for his arrest. The warrant was stayed until October 5 at 9:00 AM, meaning the rapper has time to show up in court before he is arrested.
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 Game of refusing to turn over financial docs and at one point demanded he be found in contempt. She claimed he has yet to pay a dime on the judgment.
The rapper demanded a new trial saying the judgment was too high but the judge recently shut him down saying the evidence proved Rainey’s case to the jury.
