Rick Ross Responds To 50 Cent’s Legal Request
50 Cent and Rick Ross feud have lasted for years now and it’s gotten pretty ugly. The two well-known rappers have taken their beef from wax to courtroom and both of them now being involved in the same lawsuit. Lately, 50 Cent admitted that he is not fond of the Miami staple in the least bit, speaking with an interviewer recently that there isn’t a single thing that he respects about Ross. In regards to their legal spat, Fif has been trying to get the rapper to testify for months.
In case you’ve been following this issue between these two rappers, you’re probably aware that a malpractice lawsuit was filed by 50 Cent against his former law firm related to the $7 million judgment awarded to Rick Ross in the lawsuit against his baby mother (Lastonia Leviston). Fiddy’s claims against Reed Smith, the law firm in question, have been laid off and one of the remaining main parts is that whether the firm committed malpractice by failing to interview several key witnesses, including Rick Ross. Since the results of the lawsuit forced Fiddy to file for bankruptcy a couple of years ago, it makes sense why he would end up being so adamant to get this sorted out, however, according to Rick Ross and his legal counsel, the way he has been going about it is all wrong.
“Our client Mr. Roberts has no problem appearing for a deposition, he just requires that Mr. Jackson follow the law,” says John T. Rose, Esq. in a statement to HotNewHipHop.
William Leonard Roberts II also well known as Rick Ross, previously denied 50 Cent’s numerous attempts to have him testify in relation to the case, telling the rapper that he does not have any details that would be pertinent to the legal outcome. Jackson is now attempting to get a Georgia court involved in the matter, filing papers to force Roberts to testify in the unrelated malpractice lawsuit. That motion happens to be on pending but it doesn’t seem like Ross is too eager on getting involved.
