50 Cent Allegedly Sued Over Posting Sex Tape of Rick Ross's Ex-Girlfriend

Revisiting his legal troubles just in time for the New Year, 50 Cent is coming under fire for posting a sex tape featuring Rick Ross’ ex-girlfriend, Lastonia Leviston.

A New York judge dismissed the rapper’s request to have Leviston’s 2010 lawsuit dismissed on Thursday (January 2).

Leviston sued 50 Cent (Curtis Jackson) for emotional distress after he posted a video of her sex tape with Maurice Murray on his website back in 2009.

Garnering millions of views since its release, the lawsuit against the rapper claims that Leviston never gave permission for the clip's distribution, and that the situation led to depression and anxiety.

50 purchased the tape from Murray, and both party's faces are reportedly clearly visible in the scene, and he argues that Leviston is over-exaggerating her distress.
