50 Cent has been ordered to pay $5 million to a Florida woman named Lastonia Leviston, who said the rapper humiliated her by posting a sex tape of her online.
The law suit has been going on for a while, in which 50 Cent was accused of deliberately releasing a sex tape of himself and Leviston, Rick Ross’s baby mama in order to insult Rick Ross.
TMZ also reported that the jurors, consisting of four women and two men deliberated for just over an hour before awarding Lavonia Leviston $2.5 million in damages for using her image without her permission and another $2.5 mil for intentional infliction of emotional distress.
Leviston’s lawyers argued that the rapper had leaked the tape online as a ploy for publicity, and to insult Rick Ross.
Fifty never showed up during the trial or even for the verdict. Next week, the jury will decide on punitive damages, TMZ reported.
