#BBHMM: The Game’s Royalties Seized Until $7.4 Million Judgment Paid

The Game’s attempt to avoid paying a $7M judgment after losing a sexual assault case has been put to a halt by a judge. Ruling in favor of Priscilla Rainey, who accused the rapper of sexual battery, a judge has seized the royalties of The Game’s catalogue until the debt is paid.

In 2015, Rainey lodged a complaint that the rapper assaulted her, forcing his hand beneath her dress to touch her bare genitals and buttocks. While The Game denied these allegations in court and on social media, the judge ruled in Rainey’s favor that he should pay $7.4 million to make amends. Approaching the court after months had passed without receiving any payment, Priscilla was determined to get what she owed from her abuser. The battle for restitution against the “How We Do” rapper began March 1st 2018, when Rainey filed documents demanding financial records.

Looking to prove The Game had been hiding money to avoid paying the judgment, Rainey hired several private investigators that stated he’d diverted millions. In addition to hiding cash, the investigation uncovered he’d acquired assets under pseudonyms controlled by himself and his business management. Now, with a new ruling, The Game has been informed that his royalties will be seized by Priscilla until the $7.4 million balance is paid.

According to court documents, “commission, royalties, contract receivables, deferred compensation, income, wages, payroll, salary, and accounts receivable” are all up for grabs. Should The Game attempt to disobey the court’s decision, he could be found in contempt of court and face some jail time.

Bullying Works: Halle Berry Decides Trans People Should Play Trans People

mm

Published

on

Halle Berry was on an Instagram Live stream with Christin Brown, where she announced that she was considering a role as a transgender male. If her being a cis woman wasn’t problematic enough, she also spent much of that conversation misgendering the character!

She was promptly dragged until today, July 6th, when she announced that she was backing out of the role.

There’s not a lot to say here that trans people have yet to say. I think it’s worth extracting a few key factors in the outrage. Halle Berry is not just a cis woman, she’s a light-skinned biracial woman with a habit of slipping on a shake-&-go wig and taking up space that should be reserved for women who are marginalized within our community. Instead she continues to do things likes this. You might argue that she wasn’t aware, but it’s not hard to see trans people as human beings who deserve to tell their own stories.

To add insult to injury, Halle Berry isn’t the first person to be publicly called out for this. Scarlett Johansson was dragged for something close to a year for deciding she wanted oh-so-badly to play a trans male sex worker. Infamously in 2019, she told As If magazine that she “should be allowed to play any person, or any tree, or any animal.” So, it feels really hollow when Halle Berry hangs up her dreams of a buzz-cut when those dreams should never have come close to fruition in the first place. Trans people deserve to tell their own stories. I personally don’t believe she didn’t know that.

Jada Pinkett-Smith Declares She’s Bringing Herself to the Infamous “Red Table”

mm

Published

on

When I heard Jada Pinkett-Smith may have had an inappropriate relationship with August Alsina, I said “No! Not Jada!” Justin called me, a tear falling from his third eye, and he was like “Not Jada!” We meditated, aligning our spirit energies with Willow’s, before we decided it was time to write this article.

Twitter erupted when a video of August Alsina was published, wherein he spoke of an alleged, Will Smith-cosigned, affair he had with Jada Pinkett Smith.

It didn’t take long before people started to voice their concern around the nature of their relationship. In the video, he explains that their relationship was so passionate that he could “die right now and… be okay, knowing that I truly gave myself to somebody.” This, alone, is enough to make anyone cringe who isn’t willing to validate relationships that center a peaceful death as their logical conclusion, but the math here… well, it’s mathing. And not in a good way.

Alsina mentioned the “years” in which he and Jada were allegedly coupled, and the Twitter Detective AgencyTM got suspicious.

See, August claims he was introduced to Pinkett-Smith in 2015. That means he was between the ages of 21 and 22-years-old. No, he wasn’t a minor, but given that he was brought into this space by Pinkett-Smith’s son, there’s reason to question Jada’s actions. Adding to the inappropriacy is the fact that August has been rather public about his drug-abuse history and the series of traumatic losses he endured in that time. Some expressed that this alleged affair indicates a predatory mindset on Jada’s part.

The Smith family are known for their ability to manage social media backlash. About a year ago, we reported on the Jordyn Woods situation and the hand the Smiths played in managing that narrative. In usual form, Jada has declared that she will be “bringing [herself] on The Red Table.” Though we’re unclear how this will bring the “healing” she claims is needed, we will be watching to see for ourselves how that goes.

One thing that we’ve already seen is Adrienne Banfield-Jones, Jada’s mother, posting a rather cryptic image to Instagram.

Maybe the spin has already begun. Maybe this had absolutely nothing to do with the Alsina situation. Either way, the internet has it now, and it’ll be watching.
