50 Cent’s Bank Account Frozen After Sleek Headphones Lawsuit
Looks like 50 Cent doesn’t have access to some of his coins.
Sleek Audio filed a lawsuit against 50 back in 2013 after a failed partnership. When Fif decided to create his Sync by 50 with another company instead, Sleek alleged that he stole their design and breach their confidentiality agreement. Though 50 claimed Sleek "fraudulently induced him into entering into an investment,” a judge ruled in favor of the headphones company in April, ordering the rapper to cough up $17.2 million.
Now, TMZ reports that 50 Cent’s personal bank account has been frozen dues to failure to pay the judgement. While his business accounts remain available for his use, the rapper’s lawyer stated that 50 is appealing the decision.
