The Game Reportedly Loses $20 Million Lawsuit To Viacom

Published

The Game is back to square one in his sexual assault case against Priscilla Rainey.
The Wrap first reported The Game losing out on his bid to solicit an upwards of $20 million from Viacom over damages stemming from his appearance on She’s Got Game. The game show like many others toyed with the idea of romance decided upon a rubric of questions and compatibility tests. After the show aired, contestant Priscilla Rainey filed and won a lawsuit against The Game, claiming he was a physical aggressor in a case of “sexual assault.”

The Game countersued the deposition, filing the motion against Viacom, for not adequately running a background check on Priscilla Rainey before going par for the course. The Game’s legal team presented a file on Rainey detailing “a long and violent criminal history, including multiple felony arrests for aggravated battery.” The court documents filed by Jayceon Taylor hold Viacom responsible for her behavior, and the subsequent action taking by both parties.

According to reports, federal court judge Dolly M. Gee has decide to throw away The Game’s counteraction, siding with Viacom in the process. Her ruling reinforces the media conglomerate’s right to free speech concerning the ways they went about casting their contestants, including Rainey and The Game adjudged incorrect. The statements reads: “Viacom is correct. Courts have held that the ‘creation of a television show,’ including the ‘writing, casting, and broadcasting’ of a television show, is an exercise of free speech.” Viacom has reportedly accused The Game is trying to “shift the burden of the blame,” while steering clear of taking the side of either contestant in the legal matter, in spite of attempts at tarnishing their reputation.

Tekashi 6ix9ine Continues To Instigate Beef With Chief Keef & Chicago Rappers

Tekashi 6ix9ine isn’t concerned about his well being, apparently.
Tekashi 6ix9ine’s is no stranger when it comes to beef. In fact, it seems as if he thrives off of it. While his feud with Trippie Redd has died down, he’s been beefing with many Chicago rappers, namely Chief Keef and the GBE crew. Over the weekend, Chief Keef was shot at during his stay at The W in Time Square. Thankfully, the shooters missed but many speculated that Tekashi 6ix9ine may have had some sort of involvement in it. The “GUMMO” rapper has completely denied it but it looks like he’s still into trolling the Chicago emcee and his crew.

Tekashi 6ix9ine can be considered more of a troll than a rapper and his latest Instagram post might further prove this. The rapper shared an incredibly short clip on his Instagram saying: “How mad would y’all be if I said I was the new king of Chicago?”

He’s clearly warranting a response from one of the Chicago rappers, whether it’s in person or on Instagram. The rapper caused an uproar after he claimed to be the “King Of New York.” 50 Cent may have co-signed it but there was definitely many others that haven’t been feeling the sentiment.

Earlier today, 6ix9ine was interviewed on TMZ where he spoke about the situation with Chief Keef. He completely denied any sort of involvement in the shooting, although it coincidentally happened after 6ix9ine reignited the feud with Chief Keef.

“I guess Chief Keef, he’s a gangsta rapper. He promotes violence. I mean, I guess he has a lot of beef on these streets. I don’t know who he’s beefing with that’ll hurt him but it’s definitely not me. I’m actually a fan,” he said.
