NEW YORK DAILY NEWS – Now 50 Cent’s even poorer.

A Manhattan jury on Friday said the rapper should pay Lastonia Leviston’s $2 million in punitive damages on top of the $5 million they already found he should pay her for posting her sex tape online for millions to see.

“I’ve been served justice by the courts and vindicated by God,” a beaming Leviston said afterwards.

As for her tormentor — who was not in court — she said, “I hope he learned a lesson.”

The $2 million award was less than the $15 million Leviston’s lawyer had asked for earlier in the day, but more than the $700,000 than Fitty’s lawyers had recommended.

“We had to compromise. Some wanted (to award) more, some wanted less,” said the jury foreman, Tom Evans, 72.

“What we came up with seemed to be balanced kind of equation.”

None of the jurors bought the cries of poverty from the rap star, who filed for bankruptcy last week in an admitted bid to stop the jurors from slapping him with a punitive damages award after awarding Leviston $5 million for having her civil rights violated and emotional distress.

“He has it. He’s 50 Cent. You know he has more than 50 cents,” said another juror, Sylvia Rodriguez.

“I don’t think he’s broke. If anything he has it hidden,” she said.

Evans agreed.

  1. Serves that idiot right. He is scum!
    I am tired of this piece of $hit exploiting the black community and then $hitting on them.

    He had no right to violate and humiliate this lady like he did. Some might say it's all fair game since she made the $*x tape, but it was her tape, her privacy, no one had the right to publish it without her consent.

    I hope the courts call his bluff on his poverty claim, and nail him for every single penny he owes. Indeed a fool and his money shall soon part.

    • There's something called privacy, I think we're all entitled to it!
      Would you feel the same way if someone filmed you whilst you took your shower n*ked? I don't think so. I'm so tired of hearing people say, oh, well maybe you shouldn't have made a s*x tape if you didn't want it to become public. I strongly disagree! Unless you're doing something to harm yourself or others, I think that people should have the basic right and privacy to do whatever they feel like without being violated.
