Model files $11m lawsuit against 50 Cent for calling her ‘thirsty video b**ch’

50 cent

50 Cent has been hit with an $11 million defamation lawsuit by a model who she has accused of ruining her career by branding her a “thirsty video b**ch” on Instagram last month.

Sally Ferreira claims the 38-year-old rapper lost her work and caused her emotional distress by branding her a “thirsty video b**ch” on Instagram.

The ‘Candy Shop’ hitmaker took to his account after photographs from a music video shoot for ‘Big Rich Town’, which was shot on board a train in The Bronx, New York, on March 23, were leaked online.

The photos showed 50 up close and personal with Ms Ferreira, which led to speculation that the pair were dating.

The rapper, real name Curtis Jackson, accused the brunette beauty of leaking the photographs herself and claimed she was bragging that she was dating him.

He wrote on March 27: “WARNING: Do not attempt to work with this thirsty Video b**** [Her name is Sally Ferreira and she’s a model…] she sent photos Of the video shoot to Mediatakeout Saying I’m in a relationship Withher Cananyone say RESHOOT (sic)”

The lawsuit, obtained by the New York Daily News newspaper, states Ferreira lost a number of work projects after the Instagram post, which was deleted a few hours afterwards.

Her lawsuit claims: “Before the defamatory posting, Ms. Ferreira was working on three separate entertainment industry projects and enjoyed a good reputation in the industry.

“As a direct and proximate result of the defamatory posting and the subsequent media fallout and negative publicity surrounding Ms. Ferreira, as of the date of this filing, all three projects have been put indefinitely on hold.

“Moreover, as a direct and proximate result of Mr. Jackson’s actions, Ms. Ferreira has been subjected to harsh and hurtful comments about her profession, character, and appearance, causing her severe emotional distress.”
