50 Cent has been instructed to fork over another $2 million in punitive damages to Rick Ross’ baby mama, Lastonia Leviston, for leaking her sex tape online.
A lawyer for Leviston had urged jurors to award her $15 million in punitive damages but was rather awarded $7 mil especially because 50 Cent told the jury this week that he was worth less than $5 million in an effort to get some leniency.
50 Cent’s attorney had asked them to order he pay $700,000.The jury announced the judgment in NYC on yesterday. 50 already got hit with a $5 million judgment in the case earlier this month which lead to him filing for personal bankruptcy.
50 Cent’s attorney has released a statement saying the rapper plans to fight the judgement hoping to “reduce the size of the award.”
