If you’re going to accuse someone of something and you’re asked to prove it in court, you at least want to show up. Jayceon Taylor, a.k.a. “The Game”, is known for speaking is mind and rarely shies away from confrontation. But, recently, he no-showed for court and his pockets are going to be about $200,000 lighter for it.
It all stems from an Instagram post he made in 2013, in which he accused his former nanny, Karen Monroe, of a number of indiscretions during her time in his employ. Specifically, The Game posted that he caught Monroe and her boyfriend having sex in his daughter’s bed and that, while on the clock, she smoked and drank heavily. Furthermore, he accused her of having had sexual contact with children in the past.
Monroe said that, because of this post, she lost her job as the nanny for the son of rapper Nas, was subject to death threats and dealt with severe depression, requiring medication.
So, in July 13, 2013, she filed a defamation suit against The Game. However, the rapper never responded to this suit and, on June 10 of this year, issued a default judgement against Taylor to the tune of $200,627 .
Currently, The Game is dealing with a criminal case, related to a March fight with an off-duty police officer during a pick-up basketball game, that has him looking at up to 3 years in prison. This cop, Onyebuchi Awaji, is also said to be suing him for $12 million. With these issues going on, perhaps Taylor figured that losing $200,000 did seem so bad.
