50 Cent Loses Another $2 Million in Sex Tape Suit

Jury awards Lastonia Leviston punitive damages.

50 Cent just lost another $2 million in court today when a jury tacked on punitive damages in the sex tape judgment brought against him by Rick Rosss ex, Lastonia Leviston.

The 40-year-old is now on the books to pay Leviston $7 million, which is about half of what she was asking to receive in punitive damages alone. Leviston was previously awarded $5 million after she sued Fif for leaking her sex tape. 


In court Tuesday, the Grammy-Award winning rapper told a jury that his net worth was closer to $5 million, nowhere near the $155 million that has been reported by Forbes. He filed for bankruptcy earlier this month in an effort to readjust his finances and claims nearly $30 million in debt. is your No. 1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop & R&B.
