50 cent denies domestic violence allegations
50 Cent‘s birthday week has been marred with charges of domestic violence, but the G-Unit juggernaut is denying claims that he kicked the mother of his child and destroyed property in her California home in June.
“Curtis Jackson denies these allegations as made against him. It is important to note, Mr. Jackson has not been arrested and there is no warrant outstanding for his arrest,” 50’s attorney, Scott Leemon, told MTV News in a statement. “We have been in contact with the LA City Attorney’s Office and are currently conducting our own investigation into these allegations. Out of respect for the legal process, we will not be commenting any further at this time.”
On Wednesday, news broke that Fif now faces one count of domestic violence and four counts of vandalism. “During an argument, Jackson allegedly began destroying the female’s property,” prosecutors told CCN on Wednesday. “Allegedly when the female locked herself in her bedroom, Jackson kicked open the bedroom door and kicked her, causing an injury.”
Cops were called to the scene of the crime on June 23 and found a broken TV, lamp and chandeliers, but the rapper was not in sight. If he’s found guilty, 50 Cent could face up to five years in jail and $46,000 in fines.
None of the drama has seemed to hinder 50’s birthday week plans. On Thursday, the G-Unit juggernaut celebrated the 4th of July, and on Friday (July 5) he is promoting a night of live ESPN-televised boxing in Hartford, Connecticut. On Saturday the star rapper will turn 38 years old.
