50 Cent charged with attacking ex, trashing condo

50 CENT was charged with domestic violence on Wednesday (03.07.13).

The 'Candy Shop' hitmaker, 37, has been accused of kicking his ex-girlfriend, who police say has a child with him, and destroying some of her things during a dispute at her condo in Toluca Lake, California, on June 23.

The Los Angeles City Attorney told gossip website TMZ.com that the rapper allegedly caused $7,100 in damages to her furniture, chandeliers, a TV, a lamp and by ransacking her bedroom closet during the incident.

Police officers were called to the property, where the woman claimed she locked herself in her bedroom after she got into an altercation with him but said he kicked down the door and kicked her, resulting in an injury.

The rapper, who is facing five charges, including one count of misdemeanour domestic violence and four counts of misdemeanour vandalism, reportedly left the house before police arrived.

If convicted, the award-winning star, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, could face up to five years in jail and $46,000 in fines.

He is set to appear in court on July 22.

A spokesperson for the rapper, who has a 16-year-old son with his ex-girlfriend Shaniqua Tompkins but never confirmed rumours he had another child last year, has yet to comment but the rapper wrote on Twitter on Wednesday (03.07.13): "I'm in the car I haven't been arrested."
