50 Cent Will Go To Trial For Posting Sex Tape Of Rick Ross’ Ex To YouTube

50 Cent will be charged for uploading a nude video to YouTube featuring Rick Ross’ ex-girlfriend and baby mama, Lastonia Leviston. The incident took place in 2010 when the rapper —AKA Curtis Jackson— allegedly posted footage of Leviston having sex with her then-boyfriend, Maurice Murray. Court documents say Jackson altered the tape by inserting himself into it and blurring out Murray’s face, but Leviston’s face was left unedited. The clip went on to get 3.2 million views, and now Leviston is suing for emotional distress.

It’s claimed that Jackson shared the video to get revenge on Ross, with whom he has a number of business feuds. According to the New York Daily News, Jackson obtained the tape from Murray himself after her recognized Leviston as the ex of his rap rival.

Jury selection will begin Mary 26th and the trial is set for June.
