50 Cent Will Face Legal Action in Teairra Mari Revenge-Porn Case, Lawyer Says

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap

Rapper 50 Cent will face legal action in the revenge-porn case involving “Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood” star Teairra Mari, her attorney Lisa Bloom said Wednesday.

According to Bloom, Mari became a victim of revenge porn last week, when her ex-boyfriend, Akbar Abdul-Ahad, allegedly used Mari’s password to post sexually explicit images on her Instagram account.

“Mari alleges that this post was designed to publicly humiliate her after she had broken up with him,” Bloom said in a statement issued Wednesday.

While the singer and reality TV personality “immediately took down the offensive images,” Bloom’s statement said, “50 Cent, who appears to be a close friend of Mr. Abdul-Ahad, immediately reposted one of the explicit images to his 18 million followers, with the caption, ‘get the strap.'”

Bloom will discuss the legal action to be brought against 50 Cent and Abdul-Ahad at a press conference at her law firm in Los Angeles on Thursday.

Mari took to Instagram and Twitter last week to say that she has become a victim of revenge porn, adding that she “will be in pursuit of justice.”

The musician and “Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood” personality wrote that her “social media was compromised by someone who I felt was deserving of my love and trust.”

“That person proved to be untrustworthy and posted footage of what in the moment was private and sacred,” Mari continued. “Moving forward, I recognize the need to be more cautious and discerning.”

TheWrap has reached out to a representative for 50 Cent, as well as to a Facebook account purporting to belong to Abdul-Ahad, for comment on Bloom’s allegations.
