A judge has ruled The Game's sexual assault accuser cannot get access to his financial records.
Priscilla Rainey had requested access to the rapper's books so she could determine his net worth ahead of the trial. But her request was denied because she failed to accurately follow the court's procedural rules, reports Tmz.com. Rainey is suing The Game, real name Jayceon Taylor, for $10 million (£8 million), claiming he sexually assaulted her while filming a scene in a Los Angeles bar for his reality TV show She's Got Game, in which women compete for his affections.
Rainey has been given leave to refile her request before the start of the trial in just under two weeks.
The 36-year-old, who tried to get the lawsuit dismissed in February (16), previously blasted Rainey's allegations on Instagram.
"(She) is a liar," he wrote. "Every girl on that show will tell u (you) I never touched this chick or ever desired to be anywhere near her. She got kicked off the show & as a result she filed this lame lawsuit which was probably her intentions before the show was ever even started (sic)."
Meanwhile the Hate It Or Love It hitmaker's lawyer has asked the judge overseeing the case to dismiss Rainey's request to prohibit her "promiscuous" sexual history from being used in court. The rapper is hoping allegations she was a prostitute and was arrested for theft will help him win favour with the jury when the trial begins.
The case will head to trial in November (16) unless a settlement can be reached.
