He put her sex tape online for the world to see, but 50 Cent won’t bare his assets for Lastonia Leviston.
The supposedly broke rapper initially ignored a court order to turn over detailed financial records and five years worth of his tax returns, the judge presiding over Leviston’s civil trial against the “Southpaw” star revealed Thursday.
Instead, he turned over a two-page document from his business management company that put his net worth at $4.4 million. He also submitted a draft copy of his 2014 tax returns.
“The response is woefully inadequate,” Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Paul Wooten said, and "highly prejudicial" to Leviston's case.
A source close to Jackson's team said he did turn over all of his tax returns, and that the judge was likely referring to an earlier miscommunication that resulted in their delayed handover.
A jury already found Fitty, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, should pay Leviston $5 million for violating her civil rights and causing her emotional distress by posting the video — complete with his own crude commentary — online.
The supposedly broke rapper ignored a court order to turn over detailed financial records and five years worth of his tax returns, the judge revealed Thursday.
The same jury is now weighing punitive damages against the “In Da Club” rapper in a portion of the trial that was delayed by his surprise personal bankruptcy filing last week.
Jackson, 40, testified on Tuesday, and told jurors his high-flying hip-hop lifestyle was just an act — that his pricey jewelry were all loaners, and his fleet of luxury cars were all rentals or leased.
“It’s entertainment,” he said of his image.
But Leviston's lawyer, Philip Freidin, got him to acknowledge he'd inked deals worth more than $250 million over the last decade.
An accountant for Jackson's management firm took the stand on his behalf on Thursday, but acknowledged that she's never actually spoken to the Effen Vodka pitchman, and seemed to be in the dark about many of his business dealings.
Asked how much money he makes for executive producing the TV show "Power," the accountant, Mai Pho, said, "I don't know."
Lastonia Leviston won a $5 million judgment against Jackson over the sex tape.
Asked how much money he got from a recent underwear endorsement deal, she said didn't know if he had made anything yet.
"He's posing in his underwear. He's not doing that for free, is he?" Freidin pressed.
"No," she answered.
She also played up that he had a $1 million mortgage on his sprawling Connecticut mansion - but when asked if she was aware that Fitty had recently listed the property for $11 million, she said she wasn't.
Pho said he currently has over $20 million in liabilities, and that she hadn't known he was challenging the largest debt - an $18 million verdict that's currently on appeal.
Pho is the last witness in the Leviston case, which is expected to go to the jury Thursday afternoon.
