Go shawty, it’s your lawsuit. We goin’ party cuz it’s your lawsuit.
Sorry, that inevitable earworm takes hold every single time we hear about 50 Cent. Weird thing is, whenever we do see the rapper’s name lately, it doesn’t pertain to music. Curtis James Jackson III’s new career seems to be shit-talking and litigation.
We’d need a spreadsheet to present all of the official beefs 50 Cent has; the guy truly does not play well with others. But one of his biggest feuds is with Rick Ross (aka William Roberts), and it all started because 50 Cent allegedly gave Ross the stink eye at the 2009 BET Awards. Then came a deluge of disses back and forth…in interviews and lyrics. 50 Cent said he was going to make it his mission in life to ruin Ross’ life.
So that probably explains why 50 uploaded a sex tape of one of Ross’ baby mamas to his website in an attempt to embarrass his nemesis. The encounter stars Lastonia Leviston and a man who is not Ross, and it has generated millions of views. Not surprising, Leviston is not happy and is now suing 50 Cent. She claims her co-star handed the tape over to 50 and that its broadcast left her so upset, she had suicidal thoughts.
As a result, 50 Cent is suing Ross. Huh?
That’s right. 50 is claiming that Ross was the first to post the sex tape and that he only innocently linked to it. The lawsuit says that if 50 Cent loses to Leviston in court, Ross should pick up the tab.
Ross’ camp has responded to the allegations: “The recent lawsuit filed by Curtis Jackson against Mr. William Roberts is clearly another attempt to draw attention to his descending entertainment career and one of several desperate, last-minute attempts he’s made to avoid and deflect legal and financial responsibility for his own actions related to the pending New York City civil trial in which he’s a defendant.”
This whole debacle should prove to be quite entertaining once it all unfolds. Now enjoy humming this for the rest of the day.
