50 Cent Doesn’t Have to Testify at Iverson Trial
A federal judge ruled today that 50 Cent will not be required to testify in Denver Nuggets guard Allen Iverson’s upcoming assault trial. According to the Associated Press, two people who claim they were assaulted by Iverson and his security detail during a 2005 brawl in a downtown Washington bar, believed 50’s testimony could help their case. The plaintiff’s say that while the Queens born rapper was not involved in the fight, he personally knew members of Iverson’s security team and could testify about their behavior. 50 countered that since he was not involved in the altercation, and is not named in the lawsuit, he shouldn’t have to travel from his Hartford, Connecticut home to appear in court. The judge presiding over the case agreed, and exempted Fifth from testifying. The two bar customers are seeking a payment of $5 million from the basketball star.
