50 Cent is being sued for unlawful distribution of a sex tape.

A claim has been filed against the rapper by Florida resident Lastonia Leviston, who claims he posted a 2008 video of her with a lover on his website, blurring out the lover's face and narrating it himself, reports Associated Press.

She is suing for unauthorised use of her name or image and emotional distress.

Lawyers for 50 Cent, who is alleged to have edited the video to appear in it wearing a wig and a robe, are yet to comment.
