Woman sues 50 Cent over sex vid leak
Rival rapper's 'baby mama' objects to net exposure
A Florida woman yesterday filed suit in Manhattan against rapper 50 Cent, claiming that he "unlawfully distributed" a homemade sex video of her on his website in 2009.
Lastonia Leviston is claiming "unauthorized use of her name or image and emotional distress" over the leaked vid, which is introduced and narrated by 50 Cent under the guise of a character called "Pimpin' Curly".
The 13-minute video (NSFW, explicit content), shot in 2008, shows the claimant and an unidentified man whose face has been blurred out. While the couple make merry on a sofa, Pimpin' Curly's narration hurls insults at rival rapper Rick Ross, who has a daughter with his "baby mama" Levinson.
Press reports say 50 Cent posted the video as part of a feud with Ross. ®
