West Coast rapper Game could have some serious problems on his plate in the near future as reports claim a man he punched last weekend is a police officer.

According to reports, the Los Angeles Police Department is now investigating Game for battery along with the off-duty cop.

A Los Angeles judge recently delayed a ruling on Game’s legal war with a former nanny employed by him.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mitchell Beckloff said he still needs information on what attempts Karen Monroe has made to get work and how much her therapy is costing. Monroe sued the 35-year-old rapper in July 2013 after he allegedly ranted about her on Instagram, accusing her of neglecting his children and describing her as a “very dangerous baby sitter.” Mitchell said he is unlikely to issue a seven-figure judgment against the entertainer.

Back in December, Game caught a break by having a judgement delayed.

A judge today delayed issuing a default judgment against the rapper The Game, who is accused of defaming the former nanny of his children in a rant on Instagram. In what may be the first Instagram libel case, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mitchell Beckloff gave plaintiff Karen Monroe’s attorney until Feb. 24 to provide more documentation to support her therapy expenses and how she claims she lost income due to damage to her reputation.

According to 2013 reports, the nanny went after Game’s head following publicized comments he made about her following termination.

In what might be a first, a celebrity is being taken to court for alleged defamation on Instagram, the popular photo-sharing social media forum. The lawsuit comes from a woman named Karen Monroe who says hip-hop superstar The Game hurt her reputation. (The Hollywood Reporter)
