50 Cent files lawsuit blaming Rick Ross for sex tape leak

Video featuring the mother of Ross's child appeared online in 2010

50 Cent has filed a lawsuit claiming that he was not responsible for leaking a sex tape featuring Lastonia Leviston – who is the mother of one of Rick Ross‘s children – and that it was, in fact, the Maybach Music CEO himself.

The homemade video appeared online five years ago and features footage of Leviston engaging in intercourse with her then-partner Maurice Murray spliced with a clip of 50 – real name Curtis Jackson – wearing a wig. In a 2010 lawsuit, Leviston said that 50 admitted to leaking the tape in an interview in which he repeatedly referred to her as a “call girl”.

In this new lawsuit, as reported by Courthouse News Service, Jackson claims that it was “Ross or someone under Ross’ control” that posted the video via the website ThisIsSabrinasSin.ning.com. According to 50, the site is owned by the Miami rapper.

“Jackson did not publish the video online, but instead put an embedded link on boobootv.com to the Video that was posted on ThisIsSabrinasSin.ning.com,” read the complaint.

“Jackson has denied liability to Leviston, but asserts that if held liable to Leviston, Jackson is entitled to contribution for Ross’ actions contributing to the loss alleged in the original complaint.

“If Leviston should recover against Jackson for the allegations stated in her complaint, said damages will have been caused and brought about by reason of the wrongful actions of Ross.”

It’s previously been claimed that Jackson posted the video to get revenge on Ross (William Leonard Roberts II), who has been embroiled in numerous feuds with him in the past.
