The woman that actually participated in the video, Lastonia Leviston, sued 50 Cent last month. Her grounds for the lawsuit is because of the fact that 50 Cent distributed the video across the internet without her permission. She also cited emotional distress from having everyone seeing her exposed body. Her face is visible for a short moment in the video, but the face of the partner was replaced with the face of 50 Cent as Curly.
It has been almost a month since Leviston filed the charges. Most people have forgotten about the charges until recently. Yesterday, 50 Cent conducted a series of interviews and he spoke on the sextape lawsuit. When he was asked about the lawsuit, he said that it was not him who distributed the tapes, instead he places the blame on Curly. 50 Cent is a known joker within the hip hop community and he will probably end up settling the case out of court.
