50 Cent has to Pay $16.2 Million

The famous American rapper Curtis James Jackson III, who is better known by his stage name 50 Cent, has been ordered to pay over $16 million in the headphone case.

Actually 50 Cent has failed to complete his partnership with Bradenton earphone manufacturer Sleek Audio. 50 Cent first asked the Sleek Audio to design and produce his own line of headphones.

But later on, the rapper was said to have stolen the Sleek Audio designs of over-the-ear headphones. Later on he launched his 50-Over line with another manufacturer that had similarly designed headphones.

Sleek Audio filed a case against the rapper. After three years of legal fighting, the US District Federal Court in Miami court has now ordered 50 Cent to pay Sleek Audio almost $4.5 million in terms of attorney fees and $11.7 million in terms of damages. It will become a total of $16.2 million.

50 Cent is not only an American rapper but an entrepreneur, investor, and actor too who hails from New York City. He got famous after the release of his albums Get Rich or Die Tryin' in 2003 and The Massacre in 2005. He is now working on his new album "Animal Ambition" that will be launched this summer.

If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
