50 Cent may have filed for bankruptcy, but that didn’t appear to help him in his sex tape case, where he was found liable for damages after releasing a woman’s sex tape online. Yesterday he was ordered to pay her an additional $2 million, on top of the $5 million he had already been ordered to pay her.
Afterwards’ 50 Cent’s attorney, James S. Renard, said:
Although we appreciate the jury’s service, we are disappointed in the result. Our client intends to file post-verdict, pre-judgment motions which we believe should reduce the size of the award. Ultimately, the fate of any obligation to pay a final judgment will be determined by the bankruptcy court.”
I think we all knew that’s why 50 Cent filed for bankruptcy: he’s looking to get out of paying this judgment, as well as another judgment from another lawsuit.
I wonder how things will go for bankruptcy court for 50 Cent. This seems like such an obvious ploy! And he’s been photographed (recently) walking around with a wad of cash in his pocket. It’ll be interesting to see how this all ends up. Hopefully he’s at least learned not to release other people’s sex tapes online!
