50 Cent Accused of Domestic Violence
50 Cent is celebrating Independence Day with the wrong kind of fireworks. The rapper is being charged with domestic violence against the mother of his second child.
Fitty -- real name Curtis Jackson -- is accused of kicking his former girlfriend, believed to be model Daphne Joy, and causing $7,100 in damage to her Toluca Lake, Calif. condo on June 23.
The Los Angeles City Attorney told TMZ that L.A.P.D. officers were called to the scene, at which point Joy said she locked herself in her bedroom following a fight with 50 Cent.
50 allegedly got so mad during the scuffle that he kicked down Joy's door and kicked Joy herself, injuring her.
He's also said to have broken a chandelier, furniture, a TV and a lamp, in addition to pretty much making a closet look like a bomb scene -- all before making a hasty exit before cops got there.
The 'Magic Stick' MC faces a total of five charges: four counts of misdemeanor vandalism and one count of misdemeanor domestic violence. If 50 gets convicted on all five counts, he faces a possible five years in jail and $46,000 in fines.
50 will be arraigned on his charges on July 22. Here's hoping Joy didn't take 'Get Rich or Die Tryin'' too literally, or this could get really ugly.
