Rapper The Game has been ordered to pay $7.1 million to a former contestant on the reality dating show he fronted for VH1 last year, ‘She’s Got Game’.

The rapper, real name Jayceon Taylor, was accused of conspiring with the show’s producers to force the plaintiff, Priscilla Rainey, to go on a date with him to a sports bar in Illinois.

Rainey said that she was led to believe that the date was part of the programme, but that during the evening an “intoxicated” and “out of control” Taylor inappropriately touched her buttocks and genital area several times.

Rainey sued over the incident last year and, according to TMZ, a court found in her favour last week, ordering the rapper to pay $7.1 million in damages. Taylor’s legal rep told the Associated Press that his client was currently considering his options but will likely appeal.
