50 Cent is a lot of things – he’s a great businessman, a pretty solid rapper, a hilarious Instagrammer, former Chelsea Handler lover… We can’t all be good at everything, and when it comes to sports, it seems like 50 needs to stick to his day job. He was invited to throw the first pitch at the Mets game at Citi Field in New York last night, and it was sort of a disaster. Okay, not even “sort of” – it was awful.
I’m not sure why this went so wrong, but oh man, that was BAD.

50 Cent was charged with assaulting his ex-girlfriend (and mother of his child) and also of vandalizing her apartment. He’s saying that’s not true. I mean obviously, of course he is. From TMZ:
50 Cent’s attorney released a statement, saying, “Curtis Jackson [50 Cent] denies these allegations as made against him. It is important to note, Mr. Jackson has not been arrested and there is no warrant outstanding for his arrest.”
That’s pretty much it. If this ever gets to trial and to the point where he could face real legal repercussion, here’s what could happen:
50 was hit with 5 charges in total stemming from the incident — including 1 count misdemeanor domestic violence and 4 counts of misdemeanor vandalism. Cops responded to the scene following the incident, but 50 had already left.
If convicted on all counts, 50 could face up to five years in jail and $46,000 in fines. He is due in court to be arraigned on July 22.
Yeah, I know that he’s going to court, but I sincerely doubt it will ever get to that point. If anything, they’ll reach a settlement.
50 Cent AKA Curtis Jackson was charged with attacking his ex-girlfriend — great move! Nice job! Not only did he attack her but he also allegedly trashed her apartment. From The Huffington Post:
Curtis Jackson was charged with domestic violence and four counts of vandalism in papers filed Monday. If convicted, he faces up to five years in jail and $46,000 in fines.
Jackson had already left when officers arrived June 23 at a Toluca Lake condo belonging to a woman who had a baby with him, police said.
During an argument, the woman told police, Jackson began destroying her property before she locked herself into her bedroom. The woman said Jackson kicked open the bedroom door and kicked her, causing injury.
Police said they estimated about $7,100 in damage to the woman’s home. They observed many broken items in the ransacked and clothes-strewn condo, including chandeliers, furniture and a television.
What in the ever-loving hell? Who acts like this? I mean…aside from the obvious. I guess I forgot that 50 Cent has a history of making women feel uncomfortable (not like this is on the same level). Mr. 50 Cent couldn’t be reached for comment, though he’s been tweeting all day like nothing even happened. Not the best PR move. He also’s been on Instagram, and posted this photo (below). I think I’m missing something, I don’t get it. If there’s anything to get.
