(LOS ANGELES) — Rapper 50 Cent is being accused of kicking the mother of his child and trashing her place, causing thousands of dollars worth of damage.
The confrontation happened last month at her condo in Los Angeles. The L.A. City Attorney’s office says the rapper, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, got in a fight with his ex-girlfriend, when she went to hide in the bedroom. He allegedly kicked down the door, kicked her and smashed chandeliers, furniture and a television. Jackson then left the condo before police arrived.
Jackson faces five misdemeanor charges and up to five years in jail. He’s due in court on July 22nd.
