It’s looks like video has once again come back to bite someone in the rear.

The latest? Rapper 50 Cent is going to court in June after he put footage of a rival rapper’s ex having sex on YouTube, according to the New York Daily News.

50, real name: Curtis Jackson, 39 is slated to testify in court for putting a video of Lastonia Leviston, who has a child with rapper Rick Ross, on his YouTube channel. The video got more than 3.2 million viewers. In 2010, Leviston sued Jackson for emotional distress, after he posted a video of her having sex with a former boyfriend, Maurice Murray. Apparently Murray gave Jackson the tape.

The News reports: According to court papers, Murray gave Jackson the tape in 2009 after Jackson, 39, recognized Leviston as former girlfriend of the rapper’s rival, Rick Ross. She is also the mother of Ross’ child.

Before posting the tape on the Internet, Jackson altered the tape, inserting himself into it. He blurred Murray’s face but not Leviston’s and she says the mental and emotional distress almost caused her to commit suicide.

Jury selection is slated to begin on May 26.

Jackson, who is the executive producer of the Starz channel’s hit TV show, Power, tried to have the trial postponed until October. The judge in the case refused.
