50 Cent awarded another $5,000 from reality star Teairra Mari following revenge porn court battle
Remember when 'Love and Hip Hop: Hollywood' star Teairra Mari tried to sue the rapper 50 Cent over a revenge porn video and then lost the case? Back then, in 2018, Mari said 50 Cent had been working hand-in-glove with her ex-boyfriend Akbar Abdul-Ahad.
She claimed that the pair had conspired to share a "sex tape and an obscene photo of her" on social media with the clear intention of humiliating her. However, the courts didn't see it her way and promptly dismissed the case against Curtis Jackson aka popular rapper 50 Cent.
At the time of the claim dismissal, Mari was also asked to compensate 50 Cent for his time and legal trouble. The rapper was awarded $30,000 to cover a portion of his attorney fees, which amounted to over $161,660 dollars.
However, Mari still hasn't paid up that amount (because she couldn't afford to apparently), and now things are going from bad to worse for the reality star.
According to reports, a Los Angeles judge recently ordered Teairra Mari to pay an additional $5,295.50 in sanctions on top of the $4,392.50 dollars that she was asked to pay Jackson in July 2019 as a late payment fee.
Besides this, the judge has also ordered Mari to give up her financial records to 50 Cent, so that the 'In Da Club' singer can collect on the main $30,000 payment that she still owes him in attorney fees.
Mari had been attempting to dodge the payment since 2018 by claiming that she was "broke", but 50 Cent was having none of that double talk — he knew the 'Love and Hip Hop: Hollywood' star had pocketed a cool 100 Gs the previous year itself, so he decided to come calling for what was due to him.
According to court documents filed by the rapper and his legal team, "To date, Mari has failed to pay a single dime to Jackson in satisfaction of the judgment despite earning over $100,000 this past year."
"Her previous claims under oath that she is 'broke' no longer ring true, and it is more clear than ever that she has no intention of paying her debts," the statement added.
With this latest legal assist from the courts, we're pretty sure 50 Cent will get the money he's owed, but we're also equally sure it's going to come with a fair amount of drama! Stay tuned for more on this story.
