50 Cent Sues Ex Over Public Allegations of Rape, Abuse

This undated photo of rapper 50 Cent, model Daphne Joy, and their son, Sire, was posted on Instagram by user '50 Cent' during happier times.

In a high-stakes legal showdown, rap icon 50 Cent has taken legal action against his former girlfriend, Daphne Joy, following her public allegations of rape and physical abuse. The lawsuit, filed on Monday, May 6, in Texas, marks the latest development in a bitter saga that has captivated social media and the entertainment world.

Court documents reveal a contentious relationship fraught with accusations and counterclaims. Reena Jain, attorney for Curtis Jackson (known professionally as 50 Cent), asserts that Joy’s accusations have triggered “extensive public ridicule, hatred, and contempt” toward the renowned rapper.

At the center of this legal battle lies a scathing Instagram post by Joy, also known as Daphne Narvaez, on March 28. In her post, Narvaez, 37, publicly criticized Jackson’s parenting and accused him of heinous acts of violence.

“I am tired of upholding an image to our son that you have never even earned. Let’s focus on your true actions of raping me and physically abusing me,” she wrote, igniting a firestorm of controversy.

However, Jackson’s legal team contends that Joy’s motives were not rooted in truth but rather in retaliation. The filing alleges that Joy aimed to undermine Jackson’s bid for custody of their 11-year-old son, Sire, by launching a calculated attack on his character.

According to Jackson’s filing, Joy’s post coincided with reports linking her to a lawsuit filed by producer Rodney “Lil Rod” Jones against Sean “Diddy” Combs, where Joy was labeled a “sex worker.” Jackson’s attorneys assert that Joy exploited this opportunity to hurl “multiple defamatory statements” at him, seeking to sabotage his custody case and tarnish his reputation.

Despite repeated requests from Jackson’s camp to retract her statements, Joy has stood her ground, setting the stage for a legal battle that promises to be closely watched by fans and legal experts alike.
