Rapper 50 Cent sues former consultant over TV deals after filing for bankruptcy
HARTFORD — 50 Cent has filed a lawsuit in U.S. Bankruptcy Court against a former consultant, alleging the man improperly acted as his agent, collecting fees in advance for projects without the rapper’s permission.
Tuesday’s filing seeks at least $810,000 from Andrew Jameson, who 50 Cent’s lawyers say improperly negotiated deals on his behalf, including one for a reality show with E! Entertainment. 50 Cent is also seeking an accounting from Jameson of any other deals.
A message seeking comment was left for Jameson at his Los Angeles office.
The rapper, who was born Curtis James Jackson III, filed for bankruptcy protection in July after a New York City jury ordered him to pay $7 million to a woman who said he posted online a sex tape she made with a boyfriend.
