50 Cent Reportedly Ordered To Pay $16 Million To Sleek Audio


(AllHipHop News) As Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson preps to release his Animal Ambition album, the rapper/mogul has some other non-music business to address. According to Radar Online, 50 was recently ordered to pay $16 million to Sleek Audio.

Sleek sued 50 after a 2011 deal with the Queens native for “Sleek by 50” collapsed. The company also claimed that 50 stole their product design and confidential private client information from a Sleek developed website.

Court documents stated that Sleek reached out to 50’s associates about the client information, and his personal business manager Nicolee Martin reportedly wrote, “[Sleek] is onto us, LOL. They emailed and called … about the data.”

An arbitrator previously sided with Sleek which led to an interim agreement for Sleek to receive $11,693,247 in damages. 50 fought to not have to pay those fees, but another ruling came down this week that the rapper must pay the $11.7 million plus an additional $4,488,331 in attorney’s fees – a grand total of $16,181,578.

        So from your laughter, i guess it just happen to me Huh, lol. Just trying to figure out why i’m getting the special treatment. No problems with you no?

      • Same sh*t happened to me. What browser are you using? If it’s Firefox, that’s the problem. I switched to Google Chrome and it’s working ok for me.

      • BIG MIKE SOMETHING SERIOUS

        Thanks. Google chrome. It always comes up page unresponsive. I disable one plugin, gonna see if that help.

      • MrNoName2K

      • BIG MIKE SOMETHING SERIOUS

      • MrNoName2K

        lol i have no idea fam

  • MidWestFlyest

    $16 mill? That’s sumthin light for Fif

    • That shit ain’t light 4 no one…..16 m’s bruh

      • MidWestFlyest

        Gonna have to disagree. In 2005, 50 bought in for 10% of Glaceau (Vitamin Water). In 2007, Glaceau was bought by Coke for $4 billion, a $400 million return on his 10 % investment. And that ain’t even counting, music, movies, books, clothes, that’s just water homie.

      • Weedras

        don’t check the hip hop sites for your numbers bruh, the official financial rags have already pointed out the 50 made about $100mil off that deal not 400

      • MidWestFlyest

        You right. $100 million off water ain’t shit.

      • Not saying he ain’t worth more than a hunnit m’s, but that 16 look like a significant number if taken from 100……

  • hoeyuno

    Ouch!! Yea fif can afford it but you know damn straight yayo ain’t getting a Christmas present this year..

    • WeakSauce

      You’re an asshole for this one, Yayo is the man lol but it was funny! lol

    • guddaboy

      lmao. I really laughed at dat shit

  • brollya

    That is money 50 has but knowing him he will either negotiate behind the scenes, appeal the decision or pay it off in installments. Curtis ain’t just handing over $16 million lol

  • $crillaFornia

    That aint shit he got it….He just had everybody thinking that the headphone deal was all him, and it wasnt…

    They went to court a few times since they split in 2011. 50 lost first and cried racism, claiming it was because he was black and a hip hop artist. They went back to court a few more times and 50 won $285,000 …….
    Now they back in court again …….. losing 16 million ain’t nothing to sneeze at, I don’t care how much dude is worth

    • ItGoesDownINtheDM

      right handing over 16 million will even make Puffy cry … that = to the average joe having to just hand a $tack to someone like here ya go take that …. #hurts things you dont want to go thru more than 1 in a lifetime ….and if you can avoid it all together is what you really want ….

  • The Legendary Troll

    in the game of business you win some, you lose some.

    • I think 50 is a great business man but, most of his effort was stolen from others….He stole Ja Rule’s style and ran with it, now he ran that dry…Then he stole Dre’s idea while Dre was in need of his support, now this headset thing is crashing in his face….It’s seems more like karma. 50 has turned out to be a fraud in my opinion, because he told a lot of lies and now it is all coming to light, even that “50 aka Curtis Interscope Jackson”. 50 fooled us into thinking that he was running it Interscope when he was just another artist, now they dropped him and he can’t make a hit record. #justsaying

        Are you dumb you dumb niger? 50 didn’t lose to officer ricky. Oficer ricky lost to himself for being a PO who became a rapper. 50 released a sex tape with rickies baby momma, and had him shot at in a drive by., As well as numerous diss tracks. And you call that an L for 50? Stop being a Gunit general hater, and get off of officer rickies dick you faggot.

      • Ain’t No Future In Yo Frontin’

        I’m with you but 50 had nothing to do with that drive-by, why would he gave him any publicity? If it was 50, that fat f4cking fraud would have been dead

      • Keylon Jackson Di Natale

        I call it learning how to read and write properly. And I hear you can do this is your “environment”.. It’s called school niga.

      • SmashBandicoot

        Rick Ross continued putting out quality music and 50 fell into recluse so that shows who was the real victor in that battle.

      • Keylon Jackson Di Natale

        since when fuckin somebody babymama was a L…. she is not ur main bishh… a qay ass niqqa would cry over that type of shit if 50 fuq that bishh it means he couldnt battle ricky lyrically…

      • Ross won that beef, because usually when 50 beefs with artists he tends to sell records, this time around 50 failed at it because Ross is the one selling tons of records and 50 can’t get a hit.

  • Thanx Nerve

    Damn 4M for attorney’s fees ? Good luck 50 Cent.

    By the way rappers need to talk about money as a social issue, not for bragging.

  • Yup, he originally stole the idea from Dre anyways….50 is super successful but he also has a lot of bad karma following him…..I have yet to see anyone wearing those headsets anywhere.

    • Arrie Mental Woodard

      i doubt if dre was the first to ever have headphone ideas, he is just the first to take it to this level of success.

      • You don’t remember when Dre stop talking to 50 when he first dropped his sync headphones, because Dre felt like because he had beats, 50 followed him and did the same thing while keeping it a secret until Dre found out and said that 50 was a phony friend, for what he did…Point is 50 stole the idea from Dre and in this case originality speaks for itself, because Dre’s headsets were a success and 50’s headsets seems like a failure this far.

      • 5% Hov

        did not know if Dre actually confirmed that story. But from outside it certainly lloked like that. In a recent interview fif was still salty about not be “ASKED” before Diddy to promote Beats headphones. Then declining and setting up his own.

      • Arrie Mental Woodard

        i feel you and i remember but i mean we can apply that to Sizz Beats now (who actually is with Monster who produced the first batch of Beats, Luda with his joints i think by Sleek and a few other cats)…. what did Nas no idea’s original! Dre did the dam thing tho

  • Whatever happened to Mic Tyson’s old mansion that has about 25 rooms? he still can’t get it sold yet? that property cost at least 1 million in maintenance a year, another bad investment.

  • 50 might have to take the L on this one.

  • Gonja

    This nigga’s net worth is 260 million.. We’ll never hear about this minor “bumb in the road” again.

    • FollowtheDough

      No, it isn’t. This number is so damn inflated, it isn’t funny.

      • 5% Hov

        he closer to 110, million and most is in Shares of Viatim water that he can only sell a small tranche each year.

    • Thanx Nerve

      Sorry but that shit is inflated.

    • Net Worth and money in the bank is 2 different things……Check out “MTV Cribs” to see how many rappers lived back then and do some research to see if they still own any of those things now…You would be surprised at the answer.

  • 5% Hov

    This gon be hard to pay for Fif I cant imagine he got that much cash around.

    he gonna have to sell some stocks in the Viatimin water to finance this. I suspect he will appeal. His only option is to keep appealing until the other side run out of money… them Sleek niggas must be almost broke.

  • k-swi$$

    50 CENT IS FILTHY RICH, BUT NO MILLIONAIRE WANTS TO LOSE 16 MIL. AS FAR AS HIS NET WORTH GOES I THINK HES WORTH MORE THAN THEY SAY. IM ALMOST CERTAIN THERES ALOT OF MONEY BEING EXCHANGED UNDER THE TABLE, FOR EXAMPLE IF HE GETS PAID TO DO SHOWS CASH,
    THE IRS DOESNT KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THAT.
