50 Cent Counter Sues Ex-Girlfriend For $1M+

After his ex-girlfriend took to Instagram and publicly accused him of rape and physical abuse in March,.50 Cent is suing Daphne Joy for defamation

Born Curtis Jackson, on Monday (5.06) the superstar rapper filed the lawsuit against the mother of his 11-year-old son in Texas. In the court documents, 50 claimed Joy, (born Daphne Narvaez,) subjected him to “extensive public ridicule, hatred and contempt” by making the social media allegations in March. 

According to People, Jackson’s attorneys argued that his former GF made her claims public in retaliation against the rapper’s attempts to gain custody of their son, Sire. 

The plaintiff’s lawyers stated that she made her “multiple defamatory statements” on Instagram to “falsely and publicly accuse Jackson of rape and physical abuse during their prior relationship, in a purposeful attempt to… destroy his personal and business reputation, harm Jackson’s commercial and business interests, negatively affect his custody case, and prevent him from seeing his minor son.” 

The hip-hop musician/entertainment mogul alleged that the model posted her allegations “out of sheer hatred and ill will toward Jackson.” 50’s attorney Reena Jain told the outlet that “despite being given ample opportunity to retract a false and malicious retaliatory accusation, Ms. Narvaez has shamefully chosen to interfere with her 11-year-old son’s relationship with his loving father by falsely calling him a ‘rapist.'”

Seeking $1,000,000.00+ in damages, Jackson was previously charged with domestic violence over an incident involving Narvaez in 2013, and he subsequently pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of misdemeanour vandalism.
