50 Cent (legal name: Curtis Jackson) is currently suing the law firm, Reed Smith LLP, which represented 50 in his case against Rick Ross’ baby mama, Lastonia Leviston. Leviston sued 50 over a leaked sex tape and was awarded $7 million in damages. 50 Cent is accusing Reed Smith LLP of malpractice in the sex-tape lawsuit and as part of his malpractice case 50 is attempting to subpoena Rick Ross (legal name: William Leonard Roberts II) because 50 believes Ross can provide crucial information which would clear 50’s name and prove who actually leaked the sex-tape.
50 has accused Rick Ross of avoiding being subpoenaed but it appears now that the Miami-bred rapper has finally been reached which would essentially make Rick Ross legally bound to testify in a court of law. 50 Cent’s legal representative, Imran H. Ansari, has issued a statement on the most recent development in the case.
“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,”
It was only this past November when Rick Ross brought up 50’s name in what many, including us, interpreted as Ross’ mocking his long-time rival. See that video below. We’ll have more on this matter as the details become available.
