50 Cent has been ordered to pay an extra $2 million in punitive damages to Lastonia Leviston, whose sex tape he leaked during his 2010 feud with her baby daddy Rick Ross.
As ENTmania! reported, 50 Cent was forced to file for bankruptcy three days after losing the lawsuit to Leviston, requiring him to pay her $5 million for emotional distress and invasion of privacy. Leviston was also seeking $15 million in damages … but the rapper told the court that he can’t pay because he is worth a paltry $4.4 million.
During Friday’s hearing, 50’s lawyer asked the court to award Leviston with $700,000 in punitive damages, which will be paid from the rapper’s earning from his recent movie projects. But the jury refused, and ruled that he should pay $2 million.
Cent’s lawyer has since released a statement, saying that his client will fight the judgement to ‘reduce the size of the award.’
