MOBILE, Ala. - The owner of a Mobile limousine service has sued rapper 50 Cent, claiming some of the star's security guards roughed him up and commandeered his vehicle after a March concert.
According to the lawsuit, filed in Mobile County Circuit Court, Johnny Bonner drove at least three members of 50 Cent's security staff from their hotel to the University of South Alabama Mitchell Center for a March 13 show.
Bonner's attorney, Eaton G. Barnard, said that after the show, a crowd of fans around the rapper's motorcade made it difficult for Bonner to follow the vehicle carrying 50 Cent. When Bonner tried to take a different route back to the hotel, Barnard said, the security men attacked him, threw him in the rear seat of the GMC Yukon and drove "recklessly" back to the hotel.
The lawsuit alleges Bonner suffered bruised ribs, fear and emotional distress. It seeks unspecified damages from Curtis Jackson, better known as 50 Cent; from three unidentified security men; and from unidentified parties responsible for hiring and supervising the men.
Barnard said he had sent notice of the lawsuit to Jackson in care of his record label, Shady-Aftermath/Interscope Records in Santa Monica, Calif. An Interscope publicist could not immediately be reached for comment.
