The American rapper 50 Cent has been ordered to pay 4.5 million euros to Lastonia Leviston for publishing on the internet a video his antics with a Maurice Murray. In the coming days, the fine could be multiplied to the damages claimed already to the artist.
50 Cent exploded in 2003 with the album “Get Rich or Die Tryin ‘” and its flagship title, “In Da Club.”
He has since sold 40 million albums worldwide. But he dropped a bankruptcy case according to the Wall Street Journal. His real name Curtis Jackson III claims to have $ 10 million and have 50 million debts.
The “sextape” in question was posted on the internet in 2009. The assembly also shows 50 Cent, sporting a wig, blithely commenting on the scene of explicit remarks against Lastonia Leviston and mocking its rival, Rick Ross, absent from the scene, with whom the woman has had a child. At the time of publication of the video, Ross and 50 Cent were calling through the media.
This is Maurice Murray that would have provided the video to 50 Cent, both having a grudge against Rick Ross. The interpreter of “In Da Club” defends itself by claiming that Maurice Murray had told him that Leviston would have nothing against the publication of the video. But Leviston strongly protested against the appearance of this online video saying “horrified and humiliated.”
American artist he was disappointed by this first trial. Last year already, justice sentenced him to pay a large sum. € 16 million had been claimed to businessman rapper convicted of stealing the design of headphones he has since sold.
