Entertainment icon, Curtis Jackson, better known as 50 Cent, has served notice that he intends to collect on a debt owed him by R&B star, Teairra Mari, stemming from their heated legal battle.
Information available suggests that Mari owes 50 Cent approximately $50,476, and he has so far shown no signs of ending the quest to secure payment from her.
Radar Online reports that 50 Cent recently filed paperwork in California in an attempt to compel Mari to pay up the balance she owes after losing a lawsuit against him in 2019.
The filing, which was a Writ of Execution, was entered in Sacramento County, even though Mari’s last known address was discovered to be Atlanta, Ga., and this is because 50 Cent believed she had assets in the area.
The Writ of Execution was addressed to the Sacramento Sherriff’s Office and requested that the county “enforce the judgment” against her, which the filing noted continues to mount with “daily interest.”
Out of the $50,476 owed, $30,000 was awarded to 50 Cent back in 2019 to cover his legal fees, with the additional $20,000 consisting of sanctions, fees, and accumulated interest due to Mari’s failure to pay.
50 Cent and Teairra Mari’s litigation stems from the latter’s lawsuit accusing the In Da Club crooner of causing her emotional distress after sharing “revenge porn” of her on social media.
According to Mari, the explicit content was posted by her ex-boyfriend Akbar Abdul-Ahad, who is said to be an associate of the musician.
She therefore accused them of conspiring to intimidate, objectify, and degrade her out of malicious intent. 50 Cent nonetheless counter-argued that the video had already gone viral by the time he reposted it, and as such he isn’t liable in the case.
Mari has, regardless of the judgment, remained defiant, and vowed not to pay in a snippet of a song released in April 2019. She was arrested shortly after the release of the song, for failing to compensate the rapper.
Reacting to Mari’s arrest, 50 Cent wrote on social media that it is in her best interest to come up with the money, as he needs the money because his legal fees have gone up.
