50 Cent Hits Sex-Tape Case Lawyers With $32M Lawsuit

50 Cent has pulled the ultimate legal switcheroo by turning the tables on his former lawyers.
According to The Wrap, the Queens musician filed a hefty $32-million claim against the lawyers he’d originally hired to represent him in the Lastonia Leviston sex-tape case.
The rapper blames those at the Reed Smith law firm — including attorney Peter Raymond — for his bankruptcy, which he filed for in 2015, shortly after he was ordered to pay Leviston $7 million.
In his complaint, 50 claims that the parties mentioned were “neglectful, negligent and unethical.” He also took a shot at his former legal reps’ “legal standards” and “lack of effective representation.”
“Reed Smith and Raymond did not follow established legal standards in representing Jackson in the Leviston Case by failing to provide effective representation and conduct proper pre-trial and trial preparation prior to the Leviston trial,” the complaint reads, according to The Wrap. “In addition, their lack of effective representation and inadequate pre-trial preparation and preparation for trial caused Jackson to retain new counsel on the eve of trial.”
The complaint also makes note of an alleged conflict of interest between Reed Smith and key material witnesses, which contributed to “an unfavorable jury verdict.”
50 Cent is reportedly seeking $7 million in actual damages and $25 million in punitive damages.
Late last year, it was reported that 50 was in fact successful in his malpractice lawsuit against his former legal team, One Law Firm.
