In July 2013, L.A. rapper The Game turned to Instagram to express his concerns, anger and disappointment towards his children’s former nanny, Karen Monroe. He accused her of neglecting his children, talking badly about other children she babysat, and having sex with her boyfriend in his daughter’s room. After millions of people read the Instagram post, Monroe received several death threats and also lost her job as a nanny to rapper Nas’ son. She sued the 35-year-old rapper for defaming her name and intentional infliction of emotional stress. According to Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mitchel Bleckoff, Monroe has had to seek a therapist to help with her depression, was put on medication and experiences severe mood swings.
After failing to respond to the suit, The Game has been ordered by Judge Bleckoff to pay Monroe $200,627.

“ATTENTION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! & Beware of this woman Karen Monroe!!!!!! Her Instagram is @karyn27 & I have blocked her from all three of my IG accounts!!! She was my children’s sitter up until last year & FIRED for being caught lying, stealing, screaming at my kids, mistreating others kids & doing very inappropriate and unbecoming things of a baby sitter… she was fired by me for those things & after she was BUSTED having sex with her then boyfriend and leaving a used condom & the wrapper in my daughter’s room!!! She currently baby sits for a few celebrities, most notable Kelis (@sausageandboots) & @nasnyc’s son “Knight” whom she constantly disrespects behind her back to others including my children’s mothers trying to win her graces but she is not allowed to be with or around my children!!! She also neglects their child Knight & leaves him unattended to make runs to Starbucks etc… When the parents are not around. She drinks heavily & smokes around the children & sometimes drops them off to be baby sat at others without the parent’s consent. After hearing some of the things said about Kelis & how she s referred to is not repeatable here due to its unjust nature!!!… I’ve asked by children several times & luckily none of them were abused by this callous individual… She will read this I’m sure so I would like to say… YOU ARE NEVER ALLOWED ANYWHERE AROUND MY CHILDREN AS LONG AS YOU BREATHE & IF YOU ARE CAUGHT ANYWHERE AROUND THEM IT WILL BE THE WORST DAY OF YOUR F#CKING LIFE!!! PS VERY CONCERNED FATHER!!! #REPOST AND SPREAD THE WORD PEOPLE… DO NOT LET ANY OTHER CHILDREN BECOME HER VICTIM!!!”
