Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson is suing his former consultant and business partner for a reported $810,000 for acting as his agent and making false business deals, according to Fox CT-TV.
50 Cent claims that Andrew Jameson posed as his agent in order to collect fees in advance for projects and business deals made on the musician’s behalf without his permission, one of which was for a reality show on the E! network. TMZ reports that Jameson pitched that the rapper wanted the reality show to feature a “young white girl” who worked at G-Unit Records so that the show would be more “sellable.” 50 hired Jameson for $270,000 to set up business and television deals on his behalf. But Jameson allegedly pitched the idea after his contract expired, which the hitmaker claims “severely damaged” his relationship with NBCUniversal, E!’s parent company.
50 Cent filed the lawsuit in a federal bankruptcy court in Connecticut on Tuesday (Sept. 22). This past July, he filed for bankruptcy protection after a New York City jury ordered him to pay a woman $7 million after allegedly leaking her sex tape online.
