50 Cent remains one of the most influential rappers in the history of the hip-hop world. The legendary rapper made a name for himself in several mediums such as games, movies, books and more. That being said, it seems the legendary rapper is now facing a lawsuit for intimidating an ex-drug lord.
As previously reported, Corey “Ghost” Holland Sr. filed a $1 billion lawsuit against 50 Cent, Courtney Kemp and the STARZ network in 2021 over claims Power was based on his life, which were dismissed by 50’s legal team at the time. He claimed that 50 Cent had allegedly paid him a visit at his residence on two separate occasions in either July or August of 2021.
Cent is facing a new $300 million lawsuit filed by Corey “Ghost” Holland, who alleges that Lionsgate Entertainment enabled the rapper to launch a vicious and sustained intimidation campaign against him.
According to AllHipHop, the lawsuit claims that 50 Cent orchestrated an intimidation campaign against Holland, with Lionsgate Entertainment allegedly aware of 50’s harmful tendencies but failing to take appropriate action.
“The defendants knew about Mr. Jackson’s propensity to cause harm and violence to innocent and or vulnerable people, before they hired him and then retained him, then rewarding him with a 150 million dollar contract,” the documents read.
“Mr. Jackson is very open about his violent behavior, the defendant even acknowledged this behavior and chose to ignore it, due to the financial gains they had made with Mr. Jackson from 2016-2022, and still do partner with Jackson on numerous television deals.
“Mr. Jackson was found guilty of intentional infliction of emotional distress, just months before renewing his employment with the defendants, so the defendants knew what they were getting when they chose to do business with and employ Mr. Jackson.
Mr. Jackson on video prior to receiving a massive contract with the defendants explains how he will HIRE HITMAN TO KILL PEOPLE FROM THE HOOD, who file any lawsuits on him, so his behavior is forseeable.”
Holland is seeking $300 million in damages for intentional infliction of emotional distress and negligence in hiring and retention, among other charges. The lawsuit also aims to prevent Lionsgate Entertainment from using Holland’s life story in future productions without his consent and compensation.
While 50 Cent has not yet publicly responded to the new lawsuit, it is likely that this case will be closely watched by fans and legal observers alike. Keep checking back at Thirsty For News for more on this story and others.
