50 Cent, real name Curtis Jackson, has been charged with attacking his ex-girlfriend and vandalizing her condo. However, the rapper and entrepreneur is denying the allegations.
As we previously reported, Jackson was charged with domestic violence and four counts of vandalism, and if convicted, he faces $46,000 in fines and up to five years in jail. He allegedly attacked the mother of his child and wreaked havoc on her L.A. condo last week during an argument.
But according to The New York Daily News, Jackson denied the charges on Thursday.
"Curtis Jackson denies these allegations as made against him," his lawyer Scott Leemon said in a statement. "It is important to note, Mr. Jackson has not been arrested and there is no warrant outstanding for his arrest.”
"(We) are currently conducting our own investigation into these allegations,” the New York-based lawyer added.
Jackson is being accused of destroying $7,000 worth of property in the condo, including a television and chandeliers. He was in a relationship with the unidentified woman for three years.
