50 Cent is suing his lawyers and expecting a big pay day. The rapper is not happy with how his legal team handled a sex tape case involving Rick Ross' baby mama and is suing for $25 million for malpractice. 

According to Bossip, 50 has sued his (now-ex) attorneys at Reed Smith LLP for malpractice and breach of fiduciary duty. He claims that they dropped the ball intentionally when Lastonia Leviston (Rick Ross' baby mama) accused him of leaking her sex tape with her then-boyfriend Maurice Murray. He adds that when he fired his lawyers, they intentionally withheld information from his new team.

50 claims that Leviston's ex-boyfriend gave him the sex tape and authority to publish it. According to TMZ, her lawyers argued that 50 leaked the tape as a way to diss Ross, whom he had issues with. She was awarded $5 million in damages in 2015 and he shortly thereafter declared bankruptcy.
