The Game has responded to rumors alleging that he is the father of a 15-year-old girl's forthcoming child.
The rumors, which had apparently been floating around social media and elsewhere since last month, were the subject of a report from questionable gossip site Fameolous that included screenshotted messages that have since been deleted. Messages allegedly sent from the unnamed teen also popped up on equally questionable gossip site PopGlitz Wednesday, claiming that The Game had met her at an ID-required club, was informed of her age but didn't believe it due to her alleged fake ID, and would be offering her financial support.
In an exclusive statement to Complex Thursday, The Game refuted the allegations as a "lie made up by a child" whom he's never met. The Game also slammed non-gossip news outlets for covering the story:
This story is a lie made up by a child whom I've never met nor talked to in my life. I wish big media outlets would stop giving inaccurate news & liars a platform to tarnish their brand & make them look like the Enquirer.
After announcing a 60-day Instagram hiatus back in August, The Game briefly returned to social media this week to congratulate Gucci Mane and Keyshia Ka'oir Davis on their wedding. "Haven't posted anything in months," he wrote Wednesday. "But this is beautiful in every essence of the word and deserves attention."
