Now, a New York City jury has found that rapper 50 Cent must pay an additional $2 million in punitive damages to the woman featured in the sex tape shared on the Internet, according to Huffington Post.
Leviston’s invasion-of-privacy lawsuit argues that 50 Cent, born Curtis Jackson III, posted online a crudely narrated 13-minute sex-tape she made with a boyfriend in 2008. In the video, he taunts rival rapper Rick Ross, who isn’t featured in the video but has a child with Leviston.
A lawyer for Leviston had urged jurors to award her $15 million. Jackson’s attorney had asked them to order he pay $700,000.
