Lastonia Leviston was hit with a massive legal bill just months after a jury awarded her a multimillion dollar settlement in a suit filed against rapper 50 Cent.
Leviston, who is rapper Rick Ross‘s baby mama, sued Fiddy for posting her sex tape online in 2012.
2 separate juries awarded her a total of $7 million in punitive and compensatory damages. But Leviston might not see a dime of that money after Fiddy filed for bankruptcy in July.
To add insult to injury, Leviston’s lawyers hit her with “unreasonable” attorney’s fees.
Leviston accused her attorneys of running up the legal bill at her expense.
“50 Cent owes Lastonia Leviston millions for releasing her sex tape, so it makes sense she’s upset his bankruptcy lawyers are living in the lap of luxury, and racking up huge expenses in the process.
Leviston, who won a $7 million judgement from Fiddy, filed docs calling out the rapper’s legal team for dropping $57,241.76 on hotels alone while working on his bankruptcy case. Their legal research tab comes to $14,800.66, and a court reporter ran ’em $26,890.
In the docs, Leviston calls these expenses unreasonable … especially since 50 Cent filed for Chapter 11 in July. As part of his bankruptcy case, 50 has to regularly file his expenses with the court, and Leviston’s not happy with the numbers.”
50 Cent was recently criticized on social media for posting an Instagram image of his refrigerator stocked with stacks of cold hard cash.
