50 Cent Sues His Lawyers For Losing Sex Tape Case

By HHL Editors

In 2015, a judge ordered 50 Cent to pay Rick Ross's baby mama Lastonia Leviston $7 million for leaking her sex tape.

Soon after the decision, Fif declared bankruptcy.

Now he's striking back at his first lawyers in the Leviston case, suing them for significantly more money than he had to pay Leviston.

According to a lawsuit filed last week, 50 is seeking $7 million in actual damages and $25 million in punitive damages from the law firm Reed Smith and Raymond.

“Reed Smith and Raymond did not follow established legal standards in representing Jackson in the Leviston Case by failing to provide effective representation and conduct proper pre-trial and trial preparation prior to the Leviston trial,” the complaint reads. “In addition, their lack of effective representation and inadequate pre-trial preparation and preparation for trial caused Jackson to retain new counsel on the eve of trial.”
In December of 2016, 50 settled a lawsuit against the lawyers who had repped him in his case against Sleek Audio -- which he had lost in 2014 to the tune of $17 million.

50 bragged on social media about getting a $14.5 million settlement from the firm, although that's unconfirmed.

Now he may get even more money from another set of lawyers.
