The game faces a new trial for an alleged bogus overseas tour.
According to a report by Daily mail On Wednesday May 26, the Compton rapper was hit with a $ 500,000 lawsuit, ordering him to pay that amount in damages arising from a tour of Australia that never took place in 2017.
Apparently Judge Sarah Derrington has ruled that Game, born Jayceon Taylor, and his agent, Cash Jones, are responsible for canceling the seven-city tour and must cough up hundreds of thousands of dollars from the organizers of the Australian Tour. Squad.
The Game and Jones were reportedly ordered to pay $ 478,119.73 in damages, in addition to $ 78,508.08 in interest, plus legal costs incurred by the travel agency.
About four years ago, the Born 2 Rap rymer was scheduled to perform in five Australian cities: Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth. Apparently, negotiations for after-parties and shows in Canberra and Cairns were still being sorted out.
Things got ugly when The game and his team withdrew from the trek after Tour Squad rejected the rapper and his team’s request to receive $ 3.21 million for a documentary they wanted to film.
The judge noted that the negotiations for the tour mainly took place via SMS or WhatsApp, which avoids any written record of any modification to their agreement.
Additionally, the outlet reports that tour negotiations were delayed due to Game’s fees for each show, which apparently went from $ 32.1,000 to $ 51,340. The same goes for his after-party fees, which were $ 19,250.
The game also asked to bring an entourage of 15 people on the tour.
The judge added that the behavior of everyone involved in the trial was inappropriate as the travel agency and representatives of The Game both attempted to “influence the court”. The Tour Squad representative reportedly went so far as to contact the judge’s chamber to find out when a judgment would be rendered in order to provide new information on their case.
The Game is also facing legal issues in the United States. Last May, Priscilla Rainey, the woman who accused the rapper of sexual assault in 2016, and won a $ 7.1 million judgment years later, accused the 41-year-old artist of transferring some of her assets to her manager, Wack 100, to avoid paying her.
At the time, Rainey’s judgment had risen to $ 7.2 million because The Game had yet to pay. It is not known what the current amount of the judgment is.
XXL has contacted a representative of The Game for comment on this matter.
