Singer And Reality Star Off The Hook On Five Figure Fine For Not Paying Judgment To 50 Cent
“Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood’s” Teairra Mari scored a victory in her ugly legal fracas with 50 Cent over her claims that he leaked an intimate pic of her.
An LA judge Monday rejected 50’s request to punish the “Sponsor” singer with a $25,000 fine after he alleged she’d deliberately dodged him as he attempts to the collect $30,618 plus interest she owes him in connection with the case, BOSSIP has learned.
Last month, 50 filed a motion for sanctions against Teairra, claiming he deserved big bucks for the trouble of having to track her down, only to have her mock his efforts by releasing a line of T-shirts with “I AIN’T GOT IT” and “FVCK THE LAW” on the front, according to court papers. He also accused Teairra of possibly hiding her money and assets – including $100,000 from her last season on “Love & Hip Hop” – so she wouldn’t have to pay him.
But a judge came back Monday and sided with Mari, and denied 50 Cent’s motion after hearing arguments from both sides. Lawyers for both sides were in court Monday for the hearing, but it was unclear whether Teairra or 50 were there.
Teairra sued the “Power” executive producer along with her boyfriend Akbar Abdul Ahad for allegedly sharing an intimate video of her. The lawsuit was later dismissed, but a judge ruled that Mari had to pay 50 Cent’s lawyer fees, which he said she has not.
