50 Cent ordered to pay an additional $2 million to Rick Ross’ baby mama despite filing for bankruptcy



He may have filled for bankruptcy but his legal woes are have not come to an end yet! Rapper, 50 Cent has been instructed to fork over another $2 million in punitive damagesto Rick Ross’ baby mama, Lastonia Leviston, for leaking her sex tape online.
A lawyer for Leviston had urged jurors to award her $15 million in punitive damages but was rather awarded $7 mil especially because 50 Cent told the jury this week that he was worth less than $5 million in an effort to get some leniency. 50 Cent’s attorney had asked them to order he pay $700,000.The jury announced the judgment in NYC on yesterday. 50 already got hit with a $5 million judgment in the case earlier this month which lead to him filing for personal bankruptcy.

50 Cent’s attorney has released a statement saying the rapper plans to fight the judgement hoping to “reduce the size of the award.”
