50 Cent Sues Video Production Company

Published: 2005-06-07
Rapper 50 Cent has sued three video production companies saying the companies used footage from an interview without honouring an agreement to make a charitable donation to his charity the G-Unity Foundation.

50 Cent, whose real name is Curtis James Jackson III, agreed to do an interview with Czar Entertainment Inc. about 1980's criminal Kelvin Martin who also went by the name 50 Cent. In return Czar Entertainment was to make the donation but failed to do so using the footage for a DVD called The Original 50 Cent: The True Story of the Legend Who Inspired the Biggest Name in Rap.

50 Cent wants a court order barring Czar Entertainment, Premo Pictures and Vision Plant Pictures from selling the DVD. The lawsuit also seeks damages and any profits from the DVD.
