50 Cent Pleads No Contest To Vandalism Charges
LOS ANGELES (CBS/AP) — Rapper 50 Cent has been sentenced to three years of probation after pleading no contest to vandalism in a case filed after an alleged fight with his ex-girlfriend earlier this year.
Los Angeles City Attorney’s spokesman Frank Mateljan says the rapper, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, was ordered on Monday to pay $7,100 in restitution and take year of domestic violence classes.
The alleged victim, model Daphne Narvaez, said a June argument with the rapper got so heated that she locked herself in the bathroom of her Toluca Lake condominium. Narvaez alleged Jackson kicked in a door and kicked her, but the domestic violence charge was dropped Monday.
The pair were reportedly involved in a three-year relationship and have a child together.
Jackson had previously pleaded not guilty to destroying items in his ex-girlfriend’s condo during the argument in which prosecutors alleged Jackson caused an estimated $7,100 in damage and left the model’s home before police arrived.
Mateljan says the rapper must comply with a restraining order.
Attorney Scott Leemon said Jackson is pleased the case is resolved and the domestic violence charge was dropped.
