Washington DC, July 11 (ANI): 50 cent has to pay 5 million dollars to Rick Ross’s child’s mother, after he lost the sex tape lawsuit.
After long and careful consideration, the jurors including 4 women and 2 men came to the decision that Lavonia Leviston would receive 2.5 million dollars as compensation for her image being used without her permission, and another 2.5 million dollars for intentional infliction of emotional distress, TMZ.com reported.
Leviston’s lawyers had argued that the singer had leaked the tape online as a publicity stunt, and to disrespect Ricky Rozay.
The 40-year old rapper, who did not appear in any trial or the verdict, may be fined further as next week the jury will decide on the punitive damages. (ANI)
