50 Cent sues rick ross

You might remember when 50 Cent and Rick Ross had beef resulting in a lot of madness including a character called “Pimpin Curly” and a sex tape starring Rick Ross’s child’s mother.

TMZ reports that 50 Cent is now filing a lawsuit against Rick Ross. 50 Cent says that Rick Ross or a member of his entourage is actually responsible for the tape’s initial release. 50 says he merely posted a link to it. He also refers to an interview Rick Ross did with a radio station a day before the footage was leaked on-line in which the “Diced Pineapples” rapper said he was going to release a sex tape.

Lastonia Leviston, the woman who appears in the tape, brought a lawsuit against 50 Cent in 2010 for releasing the video which currently has millions of views. Leviston says the embarrassment over the video’s release which features her having sex with her ex-boyfriend Maurice Murray left her so distraught she even contemplated suicide. Leviston says Murray gave 50 Cent’s camp the tape since he too had issues with Ross and wanted retaliation.

Legal documents state that if 50 Cent loses in his case with Leviston, Ross should cover the judgement because he is truly the guilty party.

Previous efforts failed to have the case of Leviston against 50 Cent dropped and the trial is scheduled to begin in June.

Vivica Fox Shades Kenya Moore, 50 Cent And Talks “Chocolate City”

Tonight your chocolate dreams will come true on screen as Robert Ri’chard, Tyson Beckford, Darren Dewitt Henson, and more fine brothers of brown hue take it all off in the film being pegged as a Black “Magic Mike,” “Chocolate City.” The film stars more fine men than a little bit alongside Vivica Fox, who plays Ri’chard’s on-screen mama, so when she came by the office with her movie son and Henson we had to ask her how she handled being around all that chocolate on set.

More than that, we got a little personal with Miss Fox and delved into her dating life — past and present — whether she still has plans to adopt, and what she thinks about archnemesis Kenya Moore’s latest relationship flub. We don’t want to give it all away here, but just know the words “toxic trick” were used and the level of shade was unprecedented. Check out the video above and let us know what you think.

Are you going to see “Chocolate City” tonight?

Don’t You Just Want To See Ciara Prevail When It Comes To This Love Thing?

Celebrity relationships operate a lot like trends–in one day and so far out the next. (Just ask Big Sean and Ariana Grande.) In fact, it’s rare for the public to take a particular interest in any relationship for more than 15 minutes if it isn’t Jay and Bey or Kimye.

But one new relationship that has people talking is Ciara’s current romance with Russell Wilson. Fans of her music or not, some women are interested in seeing how that courtship will play out. It isn’t because the pair are especially cute together or because their union – singer falls for athlete – is unique. Nope. Interests lie in whether or not this new relationship of sorts will last. You can blame this newfound concern on CiCi’s track record with dreamboat boos who, unsurprisingly, turned out to be nightmares in front of the world.

Yes, Ciara has fallen for a few princes who ultimately turned back into frogs. There was Shad Moss, then known as Lil Bow Wow, a relationship that could be placed in the puppy love department. Following Moss was 50 Cent, who comes with a laundry list of eccentric antics that can often be too much for even his Instagram followers to handle. Then there was NBA star Amar’e Stoudemire, who eventually went back to his ex, whom he went on to marry. Rounding out the bunch is Future, who allegedly cheated on the star. Despite Future now being a part of her past, she shares a beautiful baby boy with him.

It is perhaps all of these train wrecks that keep us watching Ciara’s love life play out with baited breath, hoping it will all work out. Not only is Ciara a sweet and positive person who deserves good luck in love, but who can’t relate to her story of falling for Mr. Wrong? There is no rulebook for dating, falling in love, or keeping a happy home, so we do the best we can and learn lessons along the way. Instead of dwelling on previous love mishaps, the “I Bet” singer seemingly mends her broken heart and moves on – quicker than many may expect.

Breakups can leave a girl feeling stuck and wanting to take a break from men. But one thing we could learn from the CiCi is that it’s ok to keep trying. You don’t have to put love on the back burner because it’s been an uphill battle.

Will Russell Wilson be Ciara’s knight in shining armor, the man to deliver unconditional love (and stay faithful)? Well, it’s way too early to tell. Their appearance at the White House dinner and even his good luck tweet to the singer, as she prepared for her tour, aren’t enough information to provide the answer. But still, his actions so far show that he’s not afraid to let people know how he feels about her. (And that he’s sprung.) Considering that CiCi has always been the one doing the gushing about the guys in her life, it’s safe to say that they’re off to a great start.

Don’t Ask 50 Cent About His Oldest Son, Unless You Want To Be Called A “Black B—h”

It’s probably safe to assume that 50 Cent and his son Marquise Jackson have not made amends—and you’d better not ask him about it unless you don’t mind being berated by the Queens rapper. Recently, the 39-year-old shared a photo of himself kissing his adorable 2-year-old son, Sire Jackson, but things quickly went left when a commenter asked about Marquise.

“My little guy is getting big so fast. I feel like I’m gonna blink and he’s gonna pull off in one of my cars. Lol,” 50 captioned the photo.

“What about your first born?” the fan questioned.

“Why only angry Black b-tches got something to say about my other son he grown. What you want to give him some p-ssy? Google him.”

His response quickly sparked a debate between black women and black men, some of whom claimed that the the commenters inquiry is precisely why “Black dudes end up with white chicks.”

As you may recall, 50 has been on the outs with Marquise for years now. He has publicly blamed his ex, Shaniqua Tompkins, for turning their son against him. Two summers ago, he even threatened to write Marquise out of his will.

“I broke up with his dad when Marquise was 10 1/2,” Shaniqua said last year after 50 missed Marquise’s graduation. “So he’s been with his dad from birth till then. He loves his dad. He misses his dad. So of course it hurts. He used to cry about it. He used to really get down in his spirit. But I think when a person does stupid sh-t all the time, it starts to lose its impact.”

Clearly, this is still a sore subject for 50, but it still doesn’t explain why that made this woman an “angry Black b-tch” for asking about his son.

50 Cent Trial Set For Releasing Sex Tape

A video 50 cent released six years ago, is finally coming back around to bite him in the ass.

According to the New York Daily News, the rapper will appear in court in June for posting footage of Rick Ross’ baby mother having sex on YouTube. Lastonia Leviston, sued 50 for emotional distress in 2010 after he posted the video. The video, which showcases Leviston having sex with her ex-boyfriend, Maurice Murray, gained more than 3.2 million views.

According to court papers, Murray gave Jackson the tape in 2009 after Jackson, 39, recognized Leviston as former girlfriend of the rapper’s rival, Rick Ross. She is also the mother of Ross’ child.

 Before posting the tape on the Internet, Jackson altered the tape, inserting himself into it. He blurred Murray’s face but not Leviston’s and she says the mental and emotional distress almost caused her to commit suicide.
Despite, 50 cent’s attempts to postpone the trial to October, jury selection will begin on May 26.
We have a strong feeling, 50 will lose this case.

Straight To The Bank: 50 Cent’s 2-Year-Old Son Lands Lucrative Modeling Contract

Move over 50, there’s a new star in the family.

The son of rapper 50 Cent has just inked a pretty big modeling contract. He may be only two years old, but Sire has landed a modeling deal, according to his father, who broke the news during a radio interview with Angie Martinez on Power 105.1.

The contract is reportedly worth $700,000.

“He’s got a [modeling] deal now with Kidz Safe,” 50 Cent said. “It’s an audio company. They paid him a big payment too: $700,000.” (Video below.)

“He’s super cute, you gotta pay for it,” 50 joked.

Here are some new images of Sire on the runway at a Isabella Couture Kids show during LA Fashion Week. And look at proud poppa in the front row.

But Sire, the rapper’s son with ex-girlfriend Daphne Joy, won’t be able to go on a spending spree anytime soon (not that a two year old could). Fitty says he’s doing the financially wise thing and will put Sire’s paycheck into a trust that he can’t access until he turns 18 in 2031.

Sire will have a little competition from dad. The rapper and entrepreneur is also due to shoot an underwear ad soon.

 

“I Was Like WOW”: 50 Cent Finally Responds To Vivica Fox Saying He Was The Love Of Her Life

vivica fox says 50 cent is love of her life

It’s safe to say that everyone was a little taken aback when Vivica A. Fox shared with the world that out of all the men she has dated and fallen for, 50 Cent was the love of her life. In case you missed it, she told Meredith Vieira that the rapper and businessman had her feelings all in a tizzy, and even though she loved him, she realized that he was not good for her.

“Even though he is absolutely the love of my life, dating 50 Cent was difficult. I really, really cared for him. I loved him very much and I always will, but he just wasn’t right for me. And that’s hard when you really, really love a person in your heart and you want to be with them, but you finally have to say, ‘He’s just not right for me.’ I wish him the best. He is amazing, and baby, he fine, but to just know that if you love someone, to just know that they’re not right for you. Sometimes love ain’t always right. The heart wants what it wants, but sometimes it’s just not right.”

Well, 50 sat down with Angie Martinez this week, alongside fellow G-Unit members Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo, and finally responded to Fox’s admission.

“I saw that after. I was like WOW, that she would even say that at this point. It was a lot of confusion. At that point, I was real green. We at 2003, the release of Get Rich or Die Tryin’, largest debuting hip-hop album, and I’m sitting there like, ‘huh?’ We went out once before the [MTV Video Music] award show. I didn’t know the award show was going to publicly marry us. She knew better than I did what was going to happen, so when the train is taking off without you, you kind of feel really uncomfortable, and you don’t get to that point where you get to feel the way that the public is perceiving it. But women are more advanced than men emotionally.”

When asked if he has someone who is the love of his life, he told Martinez that the special person hasn’t come around yet.

“I don’t think I have. No. I have people I value for our friendship during the period we’ve been around each other, but I’m not sure what will happen in my life.”

He also spoke on his relationships with his sons. He says that his son, Sire, changed him.

“He’s cute right? He look like me. Eyebrows and stuff. I have so much fun with him, man. My spirit changes and I light up when you talk about him.”

But sadly, he still hasn’t reconnected with his eldest son, Marquise.

“I haven’t spoken to him. I don’t speak to him. With him and that situation, it’s so complex, Angie. Over time, she’s [Marquise’s mother] instilled her entitlement.

When asked if they could possibly work things out, the rapper said that he’s unsuccessfully tried and feels that his child, and the child’s mother, are too entitled.

“I’m listening to see what he’s saying. I don’t understand it to be honest with you. It’s a choice. My grandfather would tell you, your enemy’s enemies are your friends. Watch people, because you may not necessarily have an altercation with that person, but they’ll side with someone they think has an altercation with you on the common ground of disliking you. His mother’s views, he’s embraced. You saw him next to Floyd when I had a problem with Floyd. Seen him sit next to Slow[bucks]…it’s too cool to not be little 50 that he’s associated with everything around me but me. He keeps contact with everyone but me. There’s been points that I’ve went places that he was at, that he left. I don’t understand it. If you’ve done nothing but display love or affection towards someone…if you ask for something, like he’s a sneakerhead and likes to collect shoes. Say you getting a pair of Jordans and their $250 dollars. He says, ‘I want these new shoes.’ He asks his mother and she says, ‘Aight, I’ll figure out how to get ’em for you. But it just bothers me because your dad…you’re supposed to have more.’ Now you don’t even feel the gratification connected to you receiving what you wanted because you feel like you’re supposed to have more.”

This chat definitely had some interesting moments. You can check them out for yourself below. His comments about his sons start at the 12:55 mark, and his feelings on Fox come in around 25:33.

 

50 Cent Changes His Tune About “Empire”…Well, Kind Of

Just before the premiere of “Empire” last December, 50 Cent took issue with the Fox series, claiming that they copied the marketing strategy from his Starz series, “Power.” However, after a cute little clapback from “Empire” star Taraji P. Henson, the rapper-turned-executive-producer seems to be a bit more accepting of the series.

“I think it’s good, and I’m happy the show’s successful at the present moment, because I got a lot of friends working on that project,” he said of the series during an interview with MTV News.

He still believes that they copied his marketing strategy though.

“She [Taraji] kind of got mad at me for what I was saying, but they did copy the art. They put ‘power’ in the middle of the tag line of ‘Empire,’ ‘Music. Money. Power.’”

As for what he thinks of the series, 50 had this to say:

“I’ve watched it. It’s like ‘Glee’ with a little hip hop music in it.”

He went on to say that the show is pretty fast moving in comparison to “Power.”

“I feel like the storyline is moving extremely fast…I didn’t show my character, Kanan, until episode 4 on ‘Power,’ because I was in jail for a long period of time. Taraji came home on the first episode after 17 years. It was like, ‘damn, what happened to the rest of the story? I don’t know what’s going on.’ It started moving real fast.”

Stevie J Takes To Social Media To Ask 50 Cent For A Job On “Power”

Could you see Stevie J and his infamous rat face on “Power”? The reality star and musician is quite the character, so why not?

Stevie seems serious about wanting an opportunity to test his acting skills out on the hit Starz show. Unfortunately, he’s not as serious when it comes to the ways he’s going about campaigning for a role on the program.

Baller Alert caught the “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta” star trying to holler at 50 Cent through his Instagram page, inquiring about an opportunity to be a guest on “Power.” Of course, 50 is both a producer and a star on the show (he plays Kanan), so Stevie hit up the rapper’s comment section to ask that 50 hook him up:

Well, you know what they say: “Closed mouths don’t get fed.” And while most would say an email or a phone call is the best way to go, since 50 Cent is often found clapping back at people talking slick on his Instagram page, I have a feeling he will see it…

But if Stevie can get a small guest role on the show, he has to bring Joseline along to partake in the “shenanigans.” Now THAT would be worth watching. We’ll see if Stevie’s wish was granted when the new season premieres this June.

Vivica Fox Says Even Though 50 Cent Was The One, She Refused To Settle For His Shenanigans: “Sometimes We’re Afraid To Be Alone”

We told you over the weekend that on an upcoming episode of “The Meredith Vieira Show,” Vivica Fox was going to reveal that out of all the men who have come and gone in her love life, 50 Cent was THE one. In case you missed that post, she said that dating the rapper was very difficult, and even though she had fallen hard for him, she had to move on from 50 because he was “just not right for me.”

Well, the full episode aired yesterday, and not only did Fox say that he was the love of her life, but she also shared, while fighting back tears, what she learned after she realized that while he might have been what she wanted, he wasn’t what she needed. This is what she had to say about the rapper being her biggest mistake, or in the words of Sheryl Crow, Fox’s “Favorite Mistake.”

“Even though he is absolutely the love of my life, dating 50 Cent was difficult. I really, really cared for him. I loved him very much and I always will, but he just wasn’t right for me. And that’s hard when you really, really love a person in your heart and you want to be with them, but you finally have to say, ‘He’s just not right for me.’ I wish him the best. He is amazing, and baby, he fine, but to just know that if you love someone, to just know that they’re not right for you. Sometimes love ain’t always right. The heart wants what it wants, but sometimes it’s just not right.”

Vieira went on to ask Fox what she learned once that relationship came to an end, and the actress said that she was reminded not to settle:

“To trust in my heart, and to know to take the time not to settle. I think as women sometimes we’re afraid to be alone. Or we think, ‘Oh my God, he’s a great catch!’ But make sure you’re not dating his agent. Make sure you’re dating him. Because you know the first three months, they’ll show you all the bells and whistles, and then the real one shows up. And that goes for guys and girls, because there are some girls who got some trick bags too!”

Check out that part of their chat below and share your thoughts. Auntie Viv was preachin’ about folks and their “agents”!
