50 Cent Sued By Video Vixen For Defamation
Hip-hop heavyweight 50 Cent has been slapped with a defamation suit by a video vixen who claims the rapper slandered her on social media.
According to the New York Daily News, Sally Ferreira, a model and dancer from New York, filed the lawsuit in Manhattan Federal Court on Thursday (Apr. 24).
In her suit, she claims to be in distraught after Fiddy defamed her publicly by allegedly calling her a "thirsty video bitch" on Instagram.
The 29-year-old model, who starred in 50’s 'Big Rich Town' video, said the rapper blacklisted her after falsely accusing her of leaking a behind-the-scene photo of them together on a video shoot, which sparked rumors that they were dating.
He then allegedly ridiculed her on Twitter and Instagram with the photo and allegedly wrote in text, "WARNING: Do not attempt to work with this thirsty Video b---- she sent photos Of the video shoot to Mediatakeout Saying I’m in a relationship Withher Cananyone say RESHOOT."
He then added: "Big FAIL, super thirsty, new shoot this week coming. Unbelievable #smsaudio #Animal Ambition."
The lawsuit states a number of media outlets wrote articles about the Instagram post despite 50 Cent removing it from his account within hours of posting it.
“Before the defamatory posting, Ms. Ferreira was working on three separate entertainment industry projects and enjoyed a good reputation in the industry,” her lawsuit claims.
Ferreira, who is engaged to her boyfriend of nine years, believes 50’s allegations ruined her career and smeared her reputation. She is reportedly seeking $5-$11 million in damages.
50 Cent’s attorneys had no comment on the matter.
