50 Cent was offered $13.5 million to settle a malpractice case and he refused the money.
The rapper took to Instagram to post his response to the offer and even revealed some of the details of the case. “They offered me 13.5 million to settle my malpractice case with them yesterday, I didn’t take it, I have faith in the court system. I’ll see them at trial, what they did was ridiculous,” he said. 50 Cent is suing the law firm Garvey Schubert Barer and the attorneys who represented him in a licensing deal with headphones maker Sleek audio. 50 claims the company did not protect him in his negotiations with the company. He was sued by Sleek Audio and lost over $2 million. However, 50 claims the company missed a series of deadlines for releasing headphones that would have been branded with his name, according to Law 360.
“[Garvey Schubert Barer] and its attorneys did not fulfill their reasonable duties as attorneys and their fiduciary duties of care and loyalty to Jackson through a variety of failures, lapses in judgment, lack of diligence and deficient advice,” said 50 in the lawsuit. “[Garvey Schubert Barer]’s failures rose to the level of malpractice.” Sleek’s lawsuit against 50 Cent was one of the catalysts for his bankruptcy filing last year. He was originally ordered by the judge to pay out $16 million to Sleek.
