Rebecca Reveals the Status of Her Relationship with Game and Responds to Briona Claiming Him on Instagram
Rebecca Silvera competed for the attentions of The Game coming out on top on the season finale of She’s Got Game. VH1 caught up with the winner about the evolution of her relationship with the rapper, what Jay’s type of woman is, and what she makes of Briona Mae’s Instagram claims that she and the rapper are together now.
Congratulations! What’s going on with you and Game? Are you guys in a relationship?
Rebecca Silvera: We did try and have a relationship after the show. It had it’s ups and downs, and it couldn’t work, it just wouldn’t work. We still talk from time to time, we spoke a little last night. [We’re] trying to see if we can figure something out because I feel like what we did have was genuine.
What has been most difficult in trying to pursue the relationship since filming wrapped?
For the first three weeks of our relationship, coming off the show, he was in the studio every day. We were literally FaceTiming in the studio at 2, and 3 o’clock in the morning. He was always busy and always working on his album. His album came out now and it’s amazing and I see that he was putting in his hard work but there was time when I was like, “You cannot possibly be in the studio for four days straight.” He would be sending me pictures like, “I’m in the studio.” It’s such a crazy lifestyle, and if you’re not accustomed to a lifestyle like that it’s just impossible to understand. He lives in the studio.
Was it hard to be open to love? Was there any part of you that was worried about pursuing a relationship on television?
A lot of people have been saying to me, “It’s just a show. How could you ever think he could take you seriously?” And coming on to the show, I had my reservations because I’ve watched Flavor of Love, I watched For the Love of Ray J, I even watched Rock of Love – I know the stigma that’s attached to the dating show. I let my guard down with him because what we had was totally different. A lot of the time, everything that we had couldn’t be captured, it was too much footage. There’s no denying what we had was real.
When it was just down to you and Shy did you feel like it was yours to lose? Did you feel confident he was going to choose you?
I felt like there was a very real possibility that I was going home. I know that he did have a connection with Shy, he did have feelings for her, I just didn’t know if his feelings were stronger her. She and I are very different, the only thing that we have in common is that we both have a child. She was very understanding, laid back, easy going, she just took everything as it came.
Me on the other hand? I’m not taking everything as it came. I’m asking questions, I want to know where I stand. You replicated my date with her and I want to know if you’re going to do it again. I’m a ride or die girl but I want to know where we are riding to and why the hell do we have to die? I’m going to ask questions and it doesn’t mean that I’m not down for you and it doesn’t mean I’m not going to ride through bulls— with you but I want to know so that I can contribute and make it better.
Is there any part of you that thinks your accent gave you an advantage in the competition?
I absolutely think my accent was an advantage. I wouldn’t even say advantage but it set me apart. When you have a house full of ten beautiful women, it’s kind of like, what sets one beautiful woman apart from another beautiful woman? There were like four of us in the house that were light skinned with long black hair. I think my accent is what separated me a little bit so that he could see more than just the outward appearance.

What do you think made his mother fall for you so instantly? It seemed like you two had a little connection as well?
Moms just know, man. We do. I say that moms can smell bulls— from a mile away, when it has something to do with their children. Your guard is always so high, you are looking intently for something good or something bad in an individual. Your alert is on ten and I think [Jayceon’s mother] was just so on alert and looking for flaws that when she saw me real, my hair was messy, no makeup on, I had just woke up and came down in my robe. I just wanted to meet her. I wasn’t trying to look cute at the time because I felt like s—, I was hungover.
The question that always comes up with shows like The Bachelor or Flavor of Love is what happens on the sleepovers? What happened on that first night between the two of you?
Exactly what you saw is what we got. He basically said to me, “I’m not going to compromise myself or you because of our children. I’m not going to try to sleep with you, and I’m not going to try do anything inappropriate.” When the cameras stopped rolling and production left, it was just him and I in the hotel room, all night, no mics, no cameras and this man said, “We’re going to watch a movie. What kind of movies do you like?” And I was like, “Are you serious? That wasn’t just for TV?” and he was like, “I’m really not going to [try anything]. We have a few more weeks ahead and I don’t want it to be awkward because…feelings.” This man put on a movie, we were laying down in the bed cuddled up, and he fell asleep. [Laughs]
What movie was it?
It was some ninja sorta movies, no, it wasn’t a ninja movies. It was like an old fight movie?
Like a Kung Fu movie?
I don’t know. I just watched it because I’m not a TV or a movie person. And he knocked and fell asleep within like ten minutes. In the morning, I woke up before him and had to be out because we had call time at 8 AM.
Where a lot of the girls claiming to have slept with Game? Would they use that against on another in the competition?
Only one girl on the show claimed to be involved with him and that was Briona. We figured out that she had a previous relationship with him. They’ve been messing around for years. She kind of used that over our heads like, I’ve been here, I’ll always be here. No matter what I do he’s not getting rid of me, which proved evident many times. She did some dumb stuff and I swore that she was done and he kept her so there was clearly something there. It was annoying but it was just another element to the competition.
Do you think Jayceon has a type of woman that he normally gravitates toward?
Jayceon has a type for sure. He has two types, and I’m going to be totally honest. He likes mature, classy, sophisticated, beautiful, intelligent woman that are amazing. Like his baby mom, Tiffney she is a class act and he does like that. I feel like she and I have a lot of similarities, in the way that we carry ourselves. I don’t know her personally but just the way she carries herself and the way she presents herself to the public. On the hand he likes girls like Briona. Girls that are just crazy and young, and he’s said those are the girls that he is typically accustomed to and that’s what he’s trying to gear away from but that is what he likes: young, wild, pretty, crazy, fun girls.
Briona has been on Instagram implying that she and Game are now in a relationship? Is that true?
I can’t even call it a relationship. I’m just going off things that she’s said. She said they’ve been together three to four years, now he was with Tiffney three to four years ago. If you have been with him, there’s been a slew of women in between that time. That just goes to show me that you are not with him, you are someone that he dibbles and dabbles with when he feels like [it] and you’re there and you will continue to be there. A woman like myself would never stand for that, never, not even on a bad day. If that’s her thing? I’m not knocking her but I’m sure Jayceon has many women like that and he’s still not happy, he’s still looking for more. Even though he may be sleeping with you, he did not choose you.
If a man likes steak and you give him a burger, he’ll eat the burger but would he order the burger? No, he’ll order steak. If he wanted you, he would have chosen you but he didn’t. As far as their current relationship, that’s what she says and I can’t say otherwise because he hasn’t denied it. A woman will only say what her man allows her to say and he has not really stopped her so there must be some truth to it if he hasn’t discredited her claim.
Have you asked him to clarify what they are? Or asked him what’s true?
Jayceon likes to avoid things like that. He’ll say, “Are you going to listen to other people or are you going to listen to me? Briona can say whatever Briona wants to say, what are you going to believe?” And I’d say, “I want to believe what you tell me, so tell me something.” [Then he’d say,] “I’m telling you not to listen to what other people say,” [and I asked,] “Are you guys together or not?” [and he’d say,] “I’m out here working, what time do I have to be with Briona? I haven’t seen Briona.”
You said you’re not together at the moment but do you think there’s any chance you could find a way to make it work in the future?
When you love someone you can never say never but based on how things have been and if they continue to be this way, no. If things changed then, I would never say no but a lot would have to change and I’m not sure that that’s an option for him right now.
Who did Lee Corso pick on ESPN’s College GameDay today?
Lee Corso has been many things — a college football coach, Burt Reynolds’ college roommate and America’s favorite college football lovin’ crazy grandfather on ESPN GameDay where he makes his ‘headgear picks’ each week on location during College Football Saturday.
A new season is here, and we will be tracking all of Corso’s picks right here. The coronavirus pandemic won’t allow for the usual crowds, but the ESPN crew still plans on traveling to gameday locations, starting Sept. 12.
Below, we’ve also included a history of all of Corso’s picks from 2018 and 2019.
Track all of Corso’s 2020 picks below:
Week 12: Oklahoma vs. Oklahoma State
Corso failed to predict the correct Masters winner last week, but he’s still a perfect 9-0 in college football headgear picks this season. He’ll look to get the streak up to 10 with his choice of Oklahoma over Oklahoma State.
Week 11: Augusta National Golf Club (Masters)
College GameDay was live at Augusta National Golf Club in Week 11 in honor of Masters Week. So, naturally, this week’s headgear pick wasn’t for a college football game, but for who would win the Masters. Corso took Brooks Koepka to take the Green Jacket.
You never know if it’s a good or bad thing when Coach Corso makes his first @TheMasters pick on @CollegeGameDay but I will say the muscles are a good look coach! pic.twitter.com/S2y9MZ4pWg
Week 10: Clemson vs. Notre Dame
Corso pointed out that it’s been 43 years since Notre Dame beat Clemson. That didn’t lead him away from picking the Fighting Irish over the top-ranked Tigers in this top-4 matchup.
A reminder that Corso’s been perfect with his picks this season .

Week 9: Penn State vs. Ohio State
