A fresh $300 million lawsuit has been filed as a result of 50 Cent’s “vicious intimidation” of an ex-drug boss.
Corey “Ghost” Holland, who claims that 50 was given permission to conduct a nasty and ongoing campaign of intimidation against him, is suing Lionsgate Entertainment, according to AllHipHop.
In the case, it is stated that 50 Cent planned an intimidation campaign against Ghost, and that Lionsgate Entertainment was aware of 50’s negative tendencies but did not take the appropriate steps to stop him.
“The defendants knew about Mr. Jackson’s propensity to cause harm and violence to innocent and or vulnerable people, before they hired him and then retained him, then rewarding him with a 150 million dollar contract,” the documents read.
“Mr. Jackson is very open about his violent behavior, the defendant even acknowledged this behavior and chose to ignore it, due to the financial gains they had made with Mr. Jackson from 2016-2022, and still do partner with Jackson on numerous television deals.
“Mr. Jackson was found guilty of intentional infliction of emotional distress, just months before renewing his employment with the defendants, so the defendants knew what they were getting when they chose to do business with and employ Mr. Jackson.
“Mr. Jackson on video prior to receiving a massive contract with the defendants explains how he will HIRE HITMAN TO KILL PEOPLE FROM THE HOOD, who file any lawsuits on him, so his behavior is forseeable.”
It happens after Corey “Ghost” Holland sued 50 Cent, Courtney Kemp, and the STARZ network for $1 billion in 2021 on claims that Power was based on his life. At the time, 50’s legal team rejected those claims.
Ghost asserted earlier this year that 50 Cent visited his home twice in either July or August 2021. He said the rapper wanted to confront him and that his crew was armed.
On May 9, the two sides are slated to meet to attempt mediation in the $1 billion Power case.
