50 Cent’s attempt to convince the jury he is worth around $4.4 million failed and the lawsuit against him continues. Not only he will still have to pay Rick Ross’s baby mother Lastonia Leviston the initial $5 million for a violation of civil rights and emotional distress, but he has been slapped with additional charges.

Curtis has been ordered to pay additional $2 million in punitive damages to the victim of a sex-tape leak. A Manhattan jury came to the decision as a compromise between the victim’s requested $15 million and 50 Cent’s lawyer’s suggested $700,000.

We had to compromise,” the jury foreman said. “Some wanted [to award] more, some wanted less.”

The plaintiff, Lastonia Leviston, addressed the decision by saying, “I’ve been served justice by the courts and vindicated by God. I hope he learned a lesson.”

The order comes shortly after 50 filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy in order to stall the case, but a judge ruled the lawsuit can proceed. In other words, Fiddy needs plan C and a better legal team, because their two masterplans so far failed miserably.
