New York rapper 50 Cent is laughing all the way to the bank. The hip-hop star reportedly no longer has to worry about legal heat from “Love & Hip Hop” star Teairra Mari over a publicized revenge porn case.
According to reports, a judge ruled in 50’s favor for legal fees connected to the court battle.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, a Los Angeles judge has dismissed all claims against the rapper. 50 Cent had argued for Mari to pay his entire $161,660.15 legal bill but the judge didn’t grant him the full amount. Instead, she was ordered to pay a total of $30,618 to 50 Cent to cover his legal bills for having to fight off her lawsuit. (The Blast)
In August 2018, 50 initially announced a judge had dismissed the lawsuit.

Weeks prior, 50 Cent shared his take on rumors about Mari putting out her now-infamous sex tape.

Last June, a judge ruled against Mari to have a restraining order granted against 50 Cent and her ex-boyfriend Akbar Abdul-Ahad.
She went to court to get a restraining order against them to stop sharing the photo … but the judge has now denied that motion. And according to Lisa Bloom, the judge denied the request “because she was not convinced that the photo 50 Cent posted, with ejaculate on our client’s face, showed her ‘engaging’ in a sexual act.” Bloom also claims the judge wasn’t convinced 50 would post the photo again. Lisa took the judge to task saying, “Common sense dictates that photo of a woman with ejaculate on her face clearly depicts a sex act, and is the kind of humiliation the revenge porn law was designed to ban.” (TMZ)
