LOS ANGELES (AP) — Rapper 50 Cent denies allegations he attacked his ex-girlfriend and trashed her condo.
The "In da Club" singer's lawyer says there's no warrant outstanding on the domestic violence and vandalism charges against 50 Cent, whose real name is Curtis Jackson.
If convicted, he faces up to five years in jail and $46,000 in fines.
The woman told police that during a June 23 argument, Jackson began destroying property at her Toluca Lake condo before she locked herself into a bedroom. She says Jackson kicked open the bedroom door and kicked her, causing injury.
Police estimated about $7,100 in damage to the home.
The woman told police she had been in a three-year relationship and has a baby with Jackson.
His arraignment is July 22.
