50 Cent sues ex-girlfriend after “defamatory” rape claim

50 Cent has filed a lawsuit against his ex-girlfriend after she accused him of rape online.

The defamation case was issued by the rapper against Daphne Joy Narvaez, after the model, entrepreneur and mother of his 11-year-old son accused him of rape on Instagram in March.

The two were in a relationship between 2011 and 2013 and, in his recent filing, 50 Cent claims that Narvaez “retaliated” against him and shared “false” rape allegations after discovering that he was planning to seek sole custody of their son.

According to reports by Rolling Stone, the rapper decided to file for sole custody in a bid to “protect the interests of his minor child”. It came after he learned of the high-profile lawsuit filed by music producer Rodney “Lil Rod” Jones against music mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs, which alleged that Narvaez was a “sex worker” employed by Combs.

After news of the lawsuit against Combs emerged, 50 Cent – whose real name is Curtis Jackson – seemingly began commenting about the situation online. This included sharing a comment reading: “I didn’t know you was a sex worker, you little sex worker”, which many interpreted as being a joke aimed at Narvaez.

The next day, Narvaez shared an update saying that Jackson’s “joke” posed a risk to her safety. “Let’s put the real focus on your true evil actions of raping me and physically abusing me,” she wrote.

Now, in the lawsuit filed by Jackson in Texas on Monday (May 6), the rapper has claimed that “Narvaez knew that her statements were false” when she made the post, and yet “she knowingly published the false statements to her almost 2 million followers on Instagram”.

The filing also alleges that she “refuses to remove” the post “out of sheer hatred and ill will toward Jackson”.

Elsewhere, it claims that the rapper’s legal team sent a letter to Narvaex on April 2 demanding that the post (and the claims it made) be retracted, and states that she responded by “demanding that Jackson pay millions of dollars and unspecified legal fees and withdraw his custody suit in return for taking down the defamatory post”.

In response, Jackson’s lawyers have stated that the demands are “neither grounded in fact nor law and are clearly extortive in nature”.

They added that rather than remove the post, “Ms. Narvaez has shamefully chosen to interfere with her 11-year-old son’s relationship with his loving father by falsely calling him a ‘rapist’”, as per a comment shared with Rolling Stone.

Combs has not yet publicly responded to the claims made by Narvaez against 50 Cent, although his lawyers have previously called Jones’ claims against him “pure fiction”.

This is a developing story.
