The G-Unit head honcho has been attempting to serve Rick Ross with papers, so the Bawse can be deposed in an ongoing battle with a law firm over a leaked sex tape.
50 Cents’s lawyers claim Rick Ross, born William Leonard Roberts II, has been avoiding process servers, who have been traveling around the country in an attempt to subpoena the rapper five different times with no luck.
“[50 Cent] has retained local counsel in the Northern District of Georgia and is in the process of preparing to file a Motion to Compel Ross’ compliance with the Ross Subpoena in that District,” Imran H. Ansari, Esq. confirmed.
50 is at war with his former lawyers at Reed Smith and he’s suing the law firm for $32 million. The rapper claims Reed Smith failed to properly defend him in a lawsuit filed by Ross’s ex-girlfriend Lastonia Leviston. The G-Unit boss claims that the sex tape has been first leaked on a website he believes was affiliated with Rick Ross.
50 was ordered to pay $7 million to Leviston after he was found liable for posting the sex tape with his critique. Now, he is asking a judge to grant a motion allowing him time to track down Rick Ross, so he can testify in court before January 31st.
