50 Cent Sued for Releasing Sex Tape of Rick Ross’ Ex
50 Cent's unethical behavior during his long-running feud with Rick Ross has finally caught up to him. The Queens rapper --real name Curtis Jackson -- is being sued by Ross' ex Lastonia Leviston, for posting a home made sex tape featuring the Florida woman, on the Internet last year. Leviston filed the suit in a Manhattan Supreme Court on Wednesday (Feb. 24), explaining that she and a partner, Maurice Murray, filmed the explicit video in 2008. According to Leviston, Murray was given specific instructions to destroy the tape, but instead it was "transferred or sold" to 50 Cent.
According to the Daily News, 50 edited himself into the video -- sporting a curly wig and robe -- so he could "humorously" narrate the footage, before posting it on his website Thisis50.com. In her complaint, Leviston explained that her while partner's face was blurred out in the video, hers was not. The footage quickly ended up on YouTube and other sharing sites, garnering millions of views. Leviston also alleges that 50 later appeared on a radio show where he spoke about the video and referred to her as a "call girl." Leviston is seeking damages for the emotional distress caused by the unauthorized used of her name and image.
The notorious feud between 50 Cent and Rick Ross has included a series of diss songs and even a recent, animated video in which 50 mockingly appeared with Tia Kemp, the mother of Ross' son.
