A Bankruptcy Filing Won’t Stop 50 Cent’s Sextape Trial, So Says A Judge (Video Inside)

50 Cent and Lastonia Levinston

Entertainment mogul 50 Cent tried his best to avoid going to court over a civil suit filed against him by Lastonia Levinston, 36, over a controversial sex tape that was posted to the internet in 2009.

Levinston, who is the mother of a child between her and Rick Ross, is suing 50 for defamation and invading her privacy after he posted a video of her having sex to one of his websites. Levinston claims that the video, which earned 4 million views, has caused her emotional distress, deep depression, and suicidal thoughts. Curtis Jackson avoided court on Tuesday by filing for the bankruptcy of his SMS Promotions company just moments before a jury was to be selected for the trial. Federal Judge Katherine Failla wouldn’t let 50 get off that easy by separating the two cases allowing the trial to move forward.

In 2009, 50 Cent and Rick Ross were in the middle of a rap feud when Levinston’s boyfriend at the time, Maurice Murray, approached 50 with the sex tape. The video was posted online with Murray’s face blurred out, Levinston’s face clearly visible, and an injection of 50 playing “Pimpin Curly” in trying to mock Rozay.

Judge Failla decided that SMS Promotions is not a defendant in the trial. And by no means does the filing of bankruptcy of one of 50’s companies mean that he is broke. 50 is a money-making machine that racked up $100 million in the sale of his shares in vitamin water and reportedly won big after betting $1.6 million on Floyd Mayweather winning his bout with Manny Pacquiao. Not to mention he has a beautiful 52-room mansion in Farmington, Connecticut that is worth millions.

Of course, 50 Cent is saying he isn’t responsible for the tape being posted and that MMG boss Rick Ross is the real culprit.

Levinston’s lawyers said that jury selection for the trial will move forward on Monday.
