50 Cent ordered to pay $2 million for posting woman's sex tape

July 27, 2015 50 Cent, Rick Ross

No luck for 50 Cent. The rapper, who filed for bankruptcy earlier this month, was ordered by a NYC jury to pay $2 million in punitive damages to a woman for posting a sex tape of her online.

The decision came just two weeks after he was ordered to pay $5 million to Lastonia Leviston for posting a 13-minute sex tape she made with a boyfriend in 2008.

50 Cent had apparently leaked the video online to taunt his rival rapper Rick Ross, with whom Lastonia has a child.

“Although we appreciate the jury’s service, we are disappointed in the result,” Jackson’s attorney James S. Renard of Brewer, Attorneys & Counselors told Us Weekly. “Our client intends to file post-verdict, pre-judgment motions which we believe should reduce the size of the award.”

“Ultimately, the fate of any obligation to pay a final judgment will be determined by the bankruptcy court,” he added.

Earlier this week, the rapper had testified in a Manhattan court that al of the glamour associated with his lifestyle are, in fact, faked.

“It’s entertainment,” he said of his over-the-top lifestyle, according to The New York Daily News. The “Straight to the Bank” rapper added that his Bentley and Ferrari “were rented,” and that he had “borrowed” much of his other swag, including diamond jewelry.
