Remember when 50 Cent and Ricky Rozay were beefing a few years back and 50 upped the ante by sharing a sex tape of Rozay’s child’s mother with the world? Well, Lastonia Leviston (the mother of Ross’s child) was not having it and filed a lawsuit against the “Candy Shop” rapper in 2010. Leviston claims she was embarrassed and distraught over the tape which starred her and now ex-boyfriend, Maurice Murray. Leviston also said she experienced depression over the leaked sex tape which has over a million views. Subsequently, 50 Cent made a statement in May saying he would sue Rick Ross if he lost the case against Leviston blaming Ross as the true culprit behind the leak of the tape.
Ross better lawyer up. According to TMZ, a jury of 4 women and 2 men found 50 Cent guilty and awarded Leviston with $2.5 million in damages for using her image without permission. She also received another $2.5 million for intentional infliction of emotional distress. Her lawyers argued that 50 Cent leaked the tape for publicity in the feud with Rozay.
Apparently, 50 Cent didn’t even bother to show up for the trial or the verdict. Hopefully he’s busy making money, because the jury decides on punitive damages next week meaning Leviston may be coming into some additional coins.
