Things are only getting worse for 50 Cent, who recently filed for bankruptcy.
The rapper, whose real name is Curtis Jackson III, has been ordered to fork over an additional $2 million in punitive damages to Lastonia Leviston for posting a 13-minute sex tape she had made with a boyfriend in 2008.
Jackson had already been ordered to give Leviston $5 million for the ordeal after jurors’ initial decision two weeks ago, but a new ruling today ups that number.
As Billboard reports, Jackson posted the video to taunt Rick Ross, who fathered a child with Leviston (although he isn’t in the video).
Jackson requested a much lower payment. Find out how much lower on 99.7 Now.
