• 50 Cent to pay $7 million over sex tape


    NEW YORK: Rapper 50 Cent was ordered on Friday (Saturday in Manila) to pay another $2 million to a woman over a sex tape, despite his pleas that he was short of cash. A jury announced that it was imposing the amount in punitive damages against 50 Cent, bringing to $7 million the total amount he has to pay over the case. The Florida-based woman, Lastonia Leviston, said she felt vindicated after the decision of the jury in New York. A video that went online in 2009 depicted Leviston in sex acts that were narrated by 50 Cent, who disguised himself in a wig and spoke in an artificially high voice to portray his character “Pimpin’ Curly.” 50 Cent, whose real name is Curtis James Jackson 3rd, used the video to mock fellow rapper Rick Ross, who was formerly in a relationship with Leviston.
