Woman Secures Second Legal Victory Against Rapper the Game, Following $7M Win in Assault Lawsuit

In 2016, Priscilla Rainey initiated a lawsuit against the rapper The Game, born Jayceon Taylor, for sexual assault, resulting in a multimillion-dollar judgment in her favor. Recently, Rainey has successfully won a second legal battle against the artist. The basis of this lawsuit was her accusation that The Game attempted to conceal his assets to evade paying the owed compensation.

As reported by Radar Online, Rainey alleged that The Game utilized various “shell companies” to obscure his financial resources. Rainey, who was a contestant on The Game’s 2015 reality show ‘She’s Got Game’, filed the initial sexual assault lawsuit post the show’s conclusion, claiming that he inappropriately touched her during an outing she believed was part of the show’s activities.

The specific allegation detailed that The Game placed “his hand inside her dress to rub her bare vagina and buttocks.” Owing to The Game’s absence at his scheduled court appearances, the court issued a default judgment, ordering him to pay Rainey $7.1 million in damages.

However, in the 2021 lawsuit, Rainey contended that The Game had deliberately established several “shell companies” to avoid paying the judgment. She accused him of relinquishing his role as manager of JTT Holdings and transferring the company into the name of his manager, Wack 100.

Rainey encountered difficulties in targeting the rapper’s Los Angeles property as he was no longer the legal owner. To date, Rainey has only been able to recover $500,000 of the awarded amount.

The lawsuit argued that the primary objective of these “shell companies” was to shield assets from legal obligations. Rainey petitioned the court to dissolve these entities to secure the funds legally owed to her. In a trial held on December 13, where both Wack and Rainey testified, it was revealed that Wack claimed The Game had transferred his house to him due to a personal debt.

According to Radar, the court ruled in favor of Rainey again, mandating that The Game cannot utilize these companies to avoid his financial responsibilities. Consequently, The Game’s house was legally reassigned to his ownership, allowing Rainey to place a lien against it or proceed with its sale.

In June, it was reported that Rainey had also sought to claim The Game’s cryptocurrency assets, which she believed were held in his Coinbase account. However, the decentralized nature of cryptocurrency, being beyond direct governmental regulation, poses challenges in their seizure or tracing.

It remains uncertain if the court will pursue The Game’s cryptocurrency assets. As of now, The Game has not publicly responded to the outcomes of the second lawsuit.
