50 Cent Smacked With Lawsuit, Security Roughs Up Photographer

50 Cent is the subject

of a lawsuit filed by the owner of a Mobile, Alabama limousine service, claiming

that the rapper's security assaulted him and took control of a rented GMC Yukon.

Johnny Bonner,

owner of Top of the Bay Limousine Taxi Service, said that he was driving three

members of 50 Cent's security from their hotel to the University of South Alabama

Mitchell Center for a show on March 13.

Bonner's attorney,

Eaton G. Barnard, said fans made it difficult for Bonner to take the same route

as the vehicle carrying 50 Cent.

When Bonner attempted

to take a different route the rapper was taking, 50's security allegedly assaulted

him, threw him to the rear of the SUV and drove back to the hotel.

Bonner claims he

suffered bruised ribs, emotional distress and fear. He is seeking damages from

50 Cent, three security guards and the parties responsible for hiring the security

Jim Alcorn claimed

that as he was snapping the picture, a member of 50's security detail, who was

wearing a cast, knocked him into one of two Chevy Suburbans that were parked

in front of the store.

Alcorn claims that

six or seven men, weighing about 350 pounds each, stood over him laughing. He

claims that they pulled him away from the car, dropped him back in the street

and pulled off.

he is taking muscle relaxers and pain killers to alleviate the headaches he

now has. He has yet to file a lawsuit.
