50 Cent sues former consultant over TV deals
HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Rapper 50 Cent is suing a former consultant in federal bankruptcy court in Connecticut, alleging the man improperly acted as his agent and collected fees in advance for projects without his permission.
The lawsuit filed Tuesday seeks at least $810,000 from Andrew Jameson, who 50 Cent’s lawyers say improperly negotiated deals on the rapper’s 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.
