50 Cent Ordered To Pay $2 Million After Posting Revenge Porn

50 Cent may not even have that to his name after a New York City jury ruled that he should fork over $2 million for uploading revenge porn.

According to Cosmopolitan, 50 Cent aka Curtis James Jackson III, must now pony up additional money to Lastonia Leviston, who he already owes $5,000,000, after he was found guilty of posting her sex tape to the net without her consent. The 13-minute video was posted back in 2009 as part of a feud with Rick Ross (Leviston and Ross have a child together).

Throughout it all, Jackson continues to swear he's broke, and even filed for bankruptcy, despite having a reported net-worth of $155 million. Thankfully, the court isn't having any of it.

"He has it. He's 50 Cent," juror, Sylvia Rodriguez told New York Daily News. "You know he has more than 50 cents."

Filing for bankruptcy just so you don't have to pay your victim seems pretty shady, and Jackson's apology of "I'm sorry if you feel that I hurt you" seems pretty insincere (to say the least). But, we're hoping the size of this settlement discourages anyone from doing something like this again.
