50 Cent Loses Lawsuit; Ordered To Pay An Additional $2 Million In Sex Tape Case. NEW YORK (AP) — Rapper 50 Cent must pay an additional $2 million in punitive damages to a woman featured in a sex tape posted online, a jury decided Friday. The decision came two weeks after jurors ordered the multiplatinum-selling artist to pay $5 million to Lastonia Leviston. Leviston's invasion-of-privacy lawsuit argues that 50 Cent, born Curtis Jackson III, posted online a crudely narrated 13-minute sex-tape she made with a boyfriend in 2008. In the video, he taunts rival rapper Rick Ross, who isn't featured in the video but has a child with Leviston. After the jury's verdict, Jackson filed for bankruptcy protection in Connecticut. A lawyer for Leviston had urged jurors to award her $15 million. Jackson's attorney had asked them to order he pay $700,000. Jackson's attorney, James Renard, said in a statement Friday that he was disappointed with the verdict. He said Jackson will ask the court to reduce the jury's award.
