50 Cent To Stand Trial For Posting For Posting Woman’s Sex Tape to YouTube.

50 Cent Sex Tape You Tube

50 Cent, aka Curtis Jackson is slated to appear in court sometime this spring to testify in his own defense for putting a sex tape featuring Lastonia Leviston on YouTube. The video, which racked up 3.2 million views before being taken down, showed Leviston with her ex-boyfriend Maurice Murray. Murray’s face was obscured in the tape, Leviston’s was not.

According to the Daily News, the rapper posted the video in order to spite Rick Ross, whom Leviston also has a child with.

According to court papers, Murray gave Jackson the tape in 2009 after Jackson, 39, recognized Leviston as former girlfriend of the rapper’s rival, Rick Ross. She is also the mother of Ross’ child.

Before posting the tape on the Internet, Jackson altered the tape, inserting himself into it. He blurred Murray’s face but not Leviston’s and she says the mental and emotional distress almost caused her to commit suicide.

So far, a judge denied 50 Cent’s request to move the trial to a later date to accomodate his busy schedule that includes serving as executive producer for the hit Starz show Power. There is no word yet on whether or not a judge will grant the rapper’s motion to seal court documents.
