popular American rapper, 50 Cent has been asked to pay $5 million in damages for posting a sextape of Rick Ross’ baby mama, Lastonia Leviston.
The damages are being payed for two counts, with one being for violating her civil rights by posting an image of her without her permission. The second is for intentional affliction of emotional distress. Each count is $2.5 million.
50 Cent was not present at the trial or the verdict.
He had acquired a video she made with her boyfriend, added himself as a crude commentator and posted it online without her permission. The rapper said he didn’t actually post the video but that Leviston’s then-boyfriend said she wouldn’t mind. Due to this 50 is also suing Rick Ross, since according to Fifty, Rick is the one responsible for the sex tape leak.
Leviston said she was horrified and humiliated when it appeared in 2009.
In 2003 Leviston had a child with rapper Rick Ross, who has a long-standing rivalry with 50 Cent.
