The Game Ordered to Shell Out $5 Million

Rapper The Game has been ordered by a North Carolina judge to pay $5 million to Greensboro police officers in a defamation suit they filed in 2006.

In the lawsuit the officers allege that The-Game used their identities, wrongfully and without permission, in a documentary-style DVD he produced in 2006, titled “Stop Snitchin’ Stop Lyin’.”

In 2010, the officers were awarded $5 million in their lawsuit. Game’s legal team appealed the decision, but the court has upheld the original ruling.

Five officers will receive $1 million to each for compensatory damages. Source

I’m not trying to be funny but does The Game even have $5 million?
