50 Cent Sex Tape Legal Battle With Rick Ross' Ex To Proceed
Later, 50 Cent decided to put himself into the sex tape as a character named Pimpin' Curly, a dig at Ross. In the video, which leaked in 2010, Murray was blurred out — but Leviston was not. While 50 claims he wasn't responsible for the video's release, Leviston sees it differently. She filed a lawsuit against the rapper in 2010 claiming "emotional distress," among other damages.
As Billboard reports, a New York judge refused 50 Cent's latest motion to dismiss the case. While 50 claims he wasn't responsible for the sex tape being leaked, the judge disagrees with his argument that it was "legally fair to use the images."
Judge Paul Wooten has not overthrown the case, citing that Leviston's diary "reveals that Leviston entertained suicidal ideation as a result of the release of the video tape, and that she was unable to function normally in her daily life." more on this story
