50 Cent Suing Ex-Lawyers for $32 Million After Losing Sextape Case
This past Friday (Jan. 28), 50 Cent -- born Curtis Jackson III -- filed a claim to the U.S. Bankruptcy court in Connecticut, citing that the miscues from his ex-lawyers Reed Smith and attorney Peter Raymond left him at a disadvantage against Leviston during her lawsuit against him.
In 2015, Jackson was sued by Leviston after he posted a sex tape of her and her partner online. As a result, she opted to sue Jackson for $7 million. The lawsuit forced the "In Da Club" rapper to file for bankruptcy. In July 2015, he was ordered to pay Leviston $5 million.
