50 Cent owes Rick Ross’s baby mama Lavonia Leviston at least $6 million.
Leviston had sued Fif for leaking a video of her having sex with a man who wasn’t Rick Ross back in 2009. While Fif’s intention was to mock “Officer Ricky,” whom he was feuding with, Leviston claimed the leak left her emotional destroyed.
Today, a New York jury agreed and awarded Leviston $3.5 million for using her image without her permission, and $2.5 million for intentional infliction of emotional distress.
Leviston broke down in tears of joy after the jury read the verdict.
While 50 can probably absorb a $6 million hit, it’s likely going to get a lot worse for the Get Rich or Die Tryin star. The jury hasn’t decided punitive damages yet, and Leviston’s lawyer has asked for $20 million.
Fif is likely to appeal.
Update: The Daily News has corrected their original story. 50 Cent actually owes Leviston $5 million — $2.5 million for image without permission and $2.5 million for emotional distress. The jury will weigh punitive damages next week.
