The Game was ordered to pay his former nanny Karen Monroe more than $200,000 in damages following a 2013 Instagram rant where he accused her of doing “very inappropriate and unbecoming things of a babysitter.” He failed to respond to Monroe’s lawsuit for “defamation and intentional infliction of emotional stress,” and as a result, the judge ruled in favor of the plaintiff, including a $200,647 default judgment.
The Game’s Instagram post, which Monroe’s attorney says was seen by “millions of people,” alleged that Monroe, who also worked for Nas and Kelis, smoked and drank on the job, and even had sex in his daughter’s room. He also stated in the post that he “heard rumors that she inappropriately touched children in her home town.”
Monroe’s attorney said his client received death threats as a result of the post, and had been treated for depression.
The Game was already in a Los Angeles court Monday on a different case, where he pleaded not guilty to charges that he assaulted an off-duty police officer at a pick-up basketball game earlier this year.
