Rucuss staffApril 25, 2014
50 Cent may have found himself in legal hot water after blasting a video vixen on social media.
The In Da Club rapper claims Sally Ferreira shared behind-the-scenes photos from a March 23 music video shoot for the song Big Rich Town and said the two were an item. He was so mad about the situation that he vented about it on Instagram.
“WARNING: Do not attempt to work with this thirsty video b—-,” 50 tweeted. ”[Her name is Sally Ferreira and she’s a model…] she sent photos of the video shoot to Mediatakeout Ssying I’m in a relationship with her. Can anyone say RESHOOT.”
Below the photo of Ferreira, he posted the caption: “Big FAIL, super thirsty, new shoot this week coming.
On Thursday, Ferreira filed a suit against the rapper, claiming defamation and is seeking $11 million in damages. She alleges that his claims have hurt her reputation tremendously. 50 Cent has more than seven million social media followers. She said she’s been in a committed relationship with her fiancé of nine years.
“Without undertaking any investigation whatsoever, Mr. Jackson falsely accused Ms. Ferreira of being the source of the MediaTakeOut.com coverage by posting a picture of Ms. Ferreira on his personal Instagram account with the following text superimposed over her image,” New York Daily News reports. “Before the defamatory posting, Ms. Ferreira was working on three separate entertainment industry projects and enjoyed a good reputation in the industry.”
“As a direct and proximate result of the defamatory posting and the subsequent media fallout and negative publicity surrounding Ms. Ferreira, as of the date of this filing, all three projects have been put indefinitely on hold,” the suit states. “Moreover, as a direct and proximate result of Mr. Jackson’s actions, Ms. Ferreira has been subjected to harsh and hurtful comments about her profession, character, and appearance, causing her severe emotional distress.”
The lawsuit claims a number of media outlets wrote articles about the Instagram post despite the rapper removing it from his account within hours of writing it.
