The Game’s sexual assault case has ended with the rapper paying millions to reality show contestant Priscilla Rainey. Last August, Rainey sued the Compton rapper for damages after alleging he sexually assaulted her on multiple occasions while filming his dating show, She’s Got Game.

Rainey alleged Game tricked her into going out on a date for the show that she thought was mandatory. The two headed off to an Illinois bar where Rainey said Game got high on drugs and drunk off liquor. Intoxicated, Game allegedly slid his hands up Rainey’s skirt and rubbed her “bare vagina and buttocks” without her permission. Rainey said she suffered physical, psychological and emotional damages due to the rapper’s transgressions and sued him for $10 million in August. Now Game has to pay up.

A jury sided with Rainey and an Illinois judge has ordered the rapper to pay $7.3 million in damages stemming from the 2015 alleged sexual assault. Despite the Game attempting to smear Rainey as an alleged former prostitute who was once arrested for theft, the jury deliberated for four days and found in favor of Rainey.

It’s still unclear whether or not The Game plans to fight the court’s decision.
