50 Cent Sued By Florida Woman Over Sex Video Released In ‘Pimpin’ Curly’ Series
A Florida woman filed a lawsuit against 50 Cent this week, claiming he unlawfully distributed her homemade sex video over the Internet.
According to the Associated Press, Lastonia Leviston filed her suit in Manhattan on Wednesday (February 24), claiming the rapper (real name: Curtis Jackson) used her name and image without permission in a viral video released last year.
50 Cent allegedly posted the video last March, via his affiliate website BooBooTV.com, as a part of a viral smear campaign of rival rapper Rick Ross.
In the suit, she says 50 blurred the face of her lover in the clip, and acts as the narrator. The vid in question was part of a digital mini-series where he goes by his persona Pimpin' Curly, and dressed in a wig and robe.
In the clip he hurls insults at both Ross and Leviston, who he refers to as "Brooke" in the viral video.
"I want you to watch this on your tour bus Ricky. I want you to watch this on your motherf***in' tour bus Ricky," Fif says in the clip, as Curly. "Now how the f**k you gonna say you a boss and you run a motherfucking crew and can't even control your bitches. Is this n**** licking on the Rick Ross tattoo? The n**** licking on the Ricky tattoo. Oooh sh**. Oooh man. Somebody need to make an announcement!"
Leviston says the tape was made in 2008.
She is claiming the video caused her emotional distress, due to the public release of the clip.
At press time, it was unknown what Leviston is seeking in damages.
50's camp has yet to comment on the suit.
