50 Cent

Summary: Lastonia Leviston, the subject of the sex video rapper 50 Cent posted online, will not see any payments until his bankruptcy case is decided, causing her to question some excessively high legal fees from his legal team.

Rapper 50 Cent thought he had avoided the legal fees from the lawsuit against Lastonia Leviston, the subject of sextape he released online. The lawsuit ended with the jury awarding $7 million to Leviston and 50 Cent filing for bankruptcy.


As part of the bankruptcy process, 50 Cent is required to regularly file his finances, including the $57,241.76 tab his lawyers racked up from hotels during the bankruptcy case. Money spent on his legal research totaled $14,800.66 and a court reporter cost $26,890.

Leviston is not happy with these elaborate expenses, calling them “unreasonable” in her recently filed documents targeting his legal team. Some of her displeasure may be coming from the fact that if 50 cent is spending this much for his legal team, she may be entitled to more money. She has asked the judge to deny the legal team’s reimbursement requests and lecture 50 Cent on his spending habits.

Leviston also claims in her filings that her own attorneys spent nights in the other New York hotels that only cost $249 to $450 per night per room instead of the $1,000 from posh hotels The Benjamin in E. 50th Street and the Loews Regency on Park Avenue. Her legal team spent only $3,000 for the same trial.

With permission from Leviston’s boyfriend to post the sex tape that posed her as Pimpin’ Curly in 2009, 50 Cent posted the video. Leviston has a child with rival rapper Rick Ross, who 50 Cent was feuding with during 2009. She successfully proved that posting the sex video was solely to embarrass Ross as well as violate her civil rights and cause emotional distress.

50 Cent was represented by attorneys at Brewer Attorneys & Counselors.
