50 Cent tes­ti­fies in New York sex-tape law­suit

Cape Breton Post - - ARTS/ENTERTAINMENT -

NEW YORK - Rap­per 50 Cent is tes­ti­fy­ing in a New York City court­room about his fi­nances, his busi­ness deals and the media at­ten­tion sur­round­ing his re­cent bank­ruptcy fil­ing. The artist known for the al­bum “Get Rich or Die Tryin”' ap­peared Tues­day in Man­hat­tan state Supreme Court in a pro­ceed­ing to de­cide pos­si­ble ad­di­tional puni­tive dam­ages in an in­va­sion-of-pri­vacy law­suit. A jury al­ready or­dered the mul­ti­plat­inum­selling rap­per to pay $5 mil­lion in dam­ages. Las­to­nia Le­vis­ton's law­suit says 50 Cent didn't have her per­mis­sion but re­leased a sex tape that she made with a boyfriend. She says the rap­per added crude com­ments to taunt ri­val Rick Ross, who fa­thered one of her daugh­ters. Forbes has listed him as one of hiphop's five wealth­i­est artists. The As­so­ci­ated Press
