It's claimed the rapper still owes $32,000 after being treated for gunshot wounds three years ago...
50 CENT is being sued by a NEW YORK surgeon who claims the rapper owes him $32,000 after treating him for gunshot wounds in 2000.
The five-times-platinum rap superstar reportedly visited Jamaica Hospital Medical Center, New York with multiple gunshot wounds on May 24, 2000 where surgeon Dr Nader Paksima treated him.
The surgeon’s lawyer, Christopher Galiardo, filed the civil complaint in Manhattan Supreme Court yesterday (6).
He told Reuters: “Despite repeated requests for payment to date, the sum of $32,511.87 … remains due and owing.”
“My client feels that 50 Cent has prospered and moved on with his career since the shooting. Dr Paksima found 50 Cent to be a nice, charismatic man and we are hopeful he will settle this before going to trial,” he added.
No one has been arrested for the shooting and the legal document does not say how many wounds 50 Cent suffered on the evening.
50 Cent has been confirmed as the main support act during Eminem’s six-date tour of the UK and Ireland, which begins at Milton Keynes Bowl on June 21.
Eminem’s Anger Management UK gigs are as follows:
Milton Keynes Bowl (June 21, 22, 23)
Glasgow Hampden Park (24)
Punchestown Racecourse, County Kildare (26, 27)
