The Game Files $20 Million Lawsuit Against Viacom in Response to Sexual Assault Verdict

The Game is not taking his sexual assault verdict lightly.

The rapper has filed a staggering $20 million negligence lawsuit against media conglomerate Viacom.

According to the lawsuit, VH1’s parent company failed to properly vet She’s Got Game contestant Priscilla Rainey, consequently putting The Game’s safety at risk.

If you recall, The Game was accused of sexually assaulting Priscilla in 2015 and was ordered in 2016 to pay her more than $7 million.

“Defendants clearly had knowledge of Rainey’s violent and extensive arrest history, yet they chose ratings over protecting the Plaintiff and others,” states the complaint. “In addition to having knowledge of Rainey’s multiple arrests, Defendants knew, or should have known, that Rainey was Baker Acted in 2012.”

According to the lawsuit, this refers to Florida’s Mental Health Act of 1971, which allows for involuntary institutionalization of an individual.

The complaint goes on to accuse Rainey, who is not a named co-defendant, of “several troublesome incidents” on “She’s Got Game,” including violent behavior and jealousness. Rainey was “kicked” off the show,” it adds, which “humiliated and enraged” her.

As part of his lawsuit, The Game also cites negligent infliction of emotional distress.
