After 50 Cent attempted to turn the tables in a lawsuit filed against him five years ago by Lestonia Leviston, the mother of Rick Ross’ child, Ross’ lawyer, Xavier Donaldson has fired back at the Queens, New York rapper.
In a lawsuit filed against Ross earlier this week, 50 Cent claimed that it was the Maybach Music Group founder that leaked a sex tape featuring Leviston and another man, and not him. He added that he merely shared the tape once it was released.
According to Ross’ lawyer, 50 Cent’s claims that the Miami, Florida musician leaked the sex tape are both “frivolous” and “futile.”
“The New York City lawsuit was filed against Curtis Jackson five years ago. Mr. Roberts was neither named as a defendant nor legally joined by Mr. Jackson in that suit,” Donaldson wrote in a statement obtained by HipHopWired.com. “If and/or when Mr. Jackson properly serves Mr. Roberts, we will aggressively address and defend against these frivolous and futile claims.”
Donaldson again took aim at 50 Cent in his statement, stating that the rapper was attempting to save “his descending entertainment career” with his lawsuit against Ross.
“The recent lawsuit filed by Curtis Jackson against Mr. William Roberts is clearly another attempt to draw attention to his descending entertainment career and one of several desperate, last minute attempts he’s made to avoid and deflect legal and financial responsibility for his own actions related to the pending New York City civil trial in which he’s a defendant,” the lawyer wrote.
