CelebNMusic247.com reports that 50 Cent has been embroiled in a legal battle after Ross’ former girlfriend Lastonia Leviston successfully sued 50 Cent for allegedly posting the tape.
Leviston famously won a $7 million judgment after claiming she was caused “intentional emotional stress” – 50 Cent was found liable for leaking the tape, but it forced him into bankruptcy in 2015.
In January of 2017, 50 decided to sue Reed Smith for tanking his case, because they never deposed Rick Ross.
Now, a judge agreed to give 50 Cent until March 31st to depose Rick Ross, but the outbreak of the coronavirus is threatening to delay the case once again. This has to do with the Coronavirus lock down in the United States.
Rick Ross Has Avoided 50 Cents Subpoena:
His current lawyers say they’ve been trying to subpoena Ross since last year, and they claim that Ross has managed to avoid process servers in the case — who’ve tried to serve him at his home, at a Boston hotel, and at a show. On March 11, a judge ordered Ross to accept the subpoena and to be deposed on March 25.
Fiddy’s lawyer, Imran H. Ansari, told Page Six, in a statement:
Rick Ross has been trying to duck this deposition since last year, and having not shown up for a hearing before a federal judge in Georgia last week, we are pleased with the judge’s decision to put an end to his evasiveness by making him accept a subpoena from my client and testify.
The firm Reed Smith has denied all the allegations.
