“I wonder what a bunch of those studio lights would go for on Craigslist?”
According to People, 50 Cent’s “Whoopies, I’m too poor to pay for my sex tape lawsuit” plan didn’t work and now he is – how you say – le fucked. On top of the $5 million 50 Cent was ordered to pay to Lastonia Leviston for posting a sex tape online without her consent, a judge ordered him to pay an extra $2 million in damages on Friday. You hear that, 50 Cent’s fans? You’ve already raised $50.67; only $6,999,949.33 to go!
50 Cent’s attorney told People that they’re “disappointed” that the judge scratched out the number 5 and replaced it with a 7 on the piece of paper showing how much money he owes, and added that his client plans on filing a post-verdict motion to reduce the size of the award. His attorney also said that even though the judge told 50 to write Lastonia a check for $7 million, it will ultimately be up to the bankruptcy court to decide how much 50 Cent will pay.
If that bankruptcy judge calls 50 Cent’s bluff on his $0 bank balance and tells him to fork over $7 million to Lastonia, I hope he stresses that he is to give her seven million dollars. 50 Cent has already tried once to get out of paying Lastonia; I wouldn’t put it past him to try it again. That bankruptcy judge should make it very clear that mailing Lastonia a promotional coupon for $7 million off her next purchase of Effen vodka will not be considered payment.
