50 cent charged with domestic violence, vandalism
50 Cent has been charged with domestic violence by the Los Angeles Police Department on Wednesday (July 3), reports say. The rapper allegedly kicked the mother of his child and destroyed property in her Toluca Lake, California, condo last month. Fif took to Twitter after the allegations hit the Web, denying an arrest.
The L.A. City attorney said in a news release obtained by CNN that 50, born Curtis Jackson, faces one count of domestic violence and four counts of vandalism. “During an argument, Jackson allegedly began destroying the female’s property,” the prosecutor said. “Allegedly when the female locked herself in her bedroom, Jackson kicked-open the bedroom door and kicked her, causing an injury.”
Reports say that police were called to the scene on June 23, where they found broken chandeliers and furniture and clothes strewn all over the floor, along with a broken TV and lamp. But 50 Cent, 37, was not in sight. The damage is estimated at $7,100.
If Fif is found guilty of these charges, he will face up to five years in jail and $46,000 in fines.
Meanwhile, 50 took to Twitter, first, writing “l ook billy jean your not my lover” then, “I’m in the car I haven’t been arrested. I’m listing to MJ#SMSAUDIO.”
Then, 50 picked up on a running joke with his Twitter followers, responding to messages like ” hey, dad, how’s your week been? My child support check is due this week.” To which he responded, “Look kid your mom took one lump sum ok.”
“Daddy why are you ignoring me );” @RiverCrowson tweeted. “Be I told your mom not to have you OK,” 50 said.
The news comes just three days before his 38th birthday. 50 Cent is due in court on July 22.
