Rapper 50 Cent was accused of allegedly attacking his ex-girlfriend and trashing her Los Angeles condo.
Rapper 50 Cent pleaded not guilty Monday to kicking his baby mama when he allegedly went berserk at her California condo in June.
“The Get Rich or Die Tryin’” rhymer, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, wore a dark suit, white shirt and tie as a judge ordered him to stay 100 yards away from Daphne Joy and either turn in all of his firearms to law enforcement or sell them to licensed gun dealers.
The judge ordered Jackson back to court Sept. 4.
Joy, mother of 10-month-old Sire Jackson, did not attend the arraignment Jackson, did not attend the arraignment.
“She’s going to cooperate with (prosecutors) in the sense of giving them what they need from her, like any other victim would. If this ends in trial, I assume she would testify,” Joy’s lawyer Stephen Sitkoff told the Daily News. “She’d like to get this resolved and put it behind her. She has no interest in bringing attention to herself. She just wants to live her life.”
But her legal team used the hearing to try to serve the “Get Rich or Die Tryin'” rapper with the new custody paperwork after the criminal proceedings.
“She’s worried he’s going to take the baby out of California,” a source told The News. “She’s seeking a court order so he can’t do that.”
50 Cent only smiled when loudly confronted with the court filing as he was escorted out of the building by sheriff’s deputies. He quickly hopped in the back of his silver SUV without touching the documents, and his driver brushed them away with the vehicle’s windshield wipers.
According to prosecutors, Jackson went berserk in Joy’s Toluca Lake condo June 23, destroying more than $7,000 worth of property.
Joy allegedly locked herself in a bedroom to escape the meltdown, and that’s when Jackson busted down the door and kicked her, causing injury, prosecutors contend.
Police rushed to the scene and reportedly observed smashed chandeliers, a broken TV, a ransacked bedroom closet and Joy’s clothes all over the floor.
Jackson, 37, was charged with domestic violence and four counts of vandalism.
If convicted of all counts, he could face up to five years in jail and up to $46,000 in fines.
