50 Cent denies buying the sextape of Rick Ross’ baby mama, Lastonia Leviston, before he added his commentary. He also denies publishing the tape online. The Daily Mail reports in a pre-recorded interview played in a Manhattan court yesterday (June 22), Fif confirmed that he received the video but said did not pay for anything. He claims that his email was hacked and someone else released the tape to the web in March 2009. The private sex tape was made in 2009 with her then-boyfriend, New Jersey man Maurice Murray. Murray then sold it to the G-Unit head boss.
Leviston, Rozay’s baby mama and the woman in the tape, is currently suing Mr. Jackson for violating her civil rights by publishing the tape and inflicting emotional harm. She previously stated she was on the brink of suicide. Leviston’s lawyers claim 50 Cent used the sextape to shame his rival Rick Ross, drive traffic to Fif’s website and increase business.
Leviston had a child with rapper Rick Ross in 2003. The New York Daily News reports that 50 was in a two-hour pre-recorded questioning by Leviston’s lawyer Philip Freidin. Freidin claims the “21 Questions” rapper bragged about the tape in previous interviews but 50 Cent said he was exaggerating. 50 Cent’s lawyer, James Renard, claims this is a scam to get money from his client’s “deep pockets.” He also reiterates that “the bottom line is, Mr Jackson is not the one who first published it.”
Also, 50 Cent allegedly added his own music to the tape and pixelated Murray’s face and replaced it with a cartoon character named Pimpin’ Curly, which was an animation of Fif in a wig and fur coat. Things keep getting stranger.
