50 Cent Files Suit Against WorldStarHipHop

50 Cent is suing popular video Web site worldstarhiphop.com.

According to fox8live.com, Fif is taking action over the site’s unauthorized usage of his image plastered across their homepage. He claims that the photo is misleading, causing many visitors to think that he owns the site.

“I got a lawsuit against WorldStar for utilizing my likeness,” the G-Unit leader said in a recent interview in Atlanta. “A lot of people felt like that was my site because they saw my face on the cover of (the Web site) for a long time.”

“I have lawyers on retainers and I have to pay them so much money anyway, so we’ll go back and forth to court until (they) can’t afford a Subway sandwich,” he continued. “It’s already too late for (them).”

50’s latest disc, Before I Self Destruct, is currently available on iTunes. The physical copy hits shelves on Monday (November 16). —Max G

    This is a useless lawsuit lol. I think 50 just wants to shut worldstar down because they frequently post vids of ppl gettin at him(bang em smurf,ja rule,triple c’s…)
    And I dont care what anybody says. WSHH is the most entertaining website on the internet. Even tho their comment section is always full of 11 yr olds lol

  • wshh

    WORLDSTAR USED 50 IMAGE ON THERE SITE FOR YEARS, I THOUGHT IT WAS 50SITE AT FIRST. AND ALL THEY PUT UP IS VIDEO MAKING BLACK PEOPLE LOOK STUPID. AND ALL THEY DO IS GO POST THINGS ABOUT FIF SO FUCK THEM

    50 NEEDS TO GET OFF WORLDSTARHIPHOP DICK.. AM ON WORLDSTARHIPHOP EVERY DAY AND NEVER THOUGHT FOR ONE MINUTER THAT IT WAS HIS SITE..

    A FEW WEEKS BACK 50CENT DIS WORLDSTARHIOPHOP.COM

  • WhiteKidFromSuburbs

    50 is a genius and Im not a 50 stan. Think about it. He has Thisis50.com and worldstar is a competitor. the top competitor. 50 has always been about his money. and 50′s money is longer than pretty much anyones. He is going to have his lawyers handle this for a couple months and he wont even do a thing.

      • Capital G

        No more five dollar foot longs for World Star?

  • almackin44

    50 cents a square.. no one thought he owned that?? What a fag..

    • Jordan

      If 50 cent is a square and a fag, then why is his name in your mouth? see, his plan is already in effect. he will do anything to get his name circulating before an album drop. he’s more like a fuckin genius. take notes u broke bitchez.

  • gift

    I fucks wit WSHH. they always have interesting vids that give you the full spectrum of what’s going in hiphop, politics, tvland, and sports. (The whole MAYWEATHER FIGHT) 50 needs to cut the shit and worry about his album sales with that sucky ass first single.

  • RL

    Sue them? He should be enlisting their services to help him craft a decent rap album.

  • Mr.Nap-Town

    50 is a lame.He is always doing something lame he wants to shut them down cause his site iz trash. -REAL TALK-

  • Will

    Don’t nobody go to worldstarhiphop becuase they think 50 owns the website. Instead of trying to sue websites who dont kiss your ass how about putting out music that earns people’s respect.

  • RWORD

    LOL!

    suing WSHH?!?! LOL!

    man 50cent is a clown. I have yet to see his face on WSHH. The ONLY reason he is doing it is because the post all video and dont kiss butt to 50cent. WSHH IS NOT A 50CENT DICK RIDER

    First, he is going to lose that law sue. Second, if 50cent can sue WSHH, Fat Joe, Jarule, and anyone he beef with can sue thisis50.com becahse that site use their likeness ALL THE F*** TIME

    Dan this dude is wack. Why do you clown like xxlmag ride his dick so hard…he is a donkey

    BOSS!!

  • RWORD

    PLUS XXLMAG .com didNOT post the full 50cent quote (because they dick ride him so hard) which proves 50 is just hating and seeking attention like a little cry baby. Here is the whole quote:

    “I gotta lawsuit against WorldStar for utilizing my likeness,” 50 explained. “A lot of people felt like that was my site because they seen my face on the cover of [the website] for a long time.

    “But Q (WSHH founder), you see, you should really be nice to me. Because you’re not nice to me, I’m not nice. I have lawyers on retainers and I have to pay them so much money anyway, so we’ll go back and forth to court until [they] can’t afford a subway sandwich. I gotta pay them anyway. … It’s already too late for [them],” he continued.

    50 said he’s filed an infringement lawsuit against the site. However, it’s unclear when this was filed with the courts.

  • DetroitDraper

    50 is a genius he’s taking out his competitors thats all…He’s Ja’ing worldstar

    MAYN HOL’UP

  • Jhon da Analyst

    Fisty doesn’t have to record another album ever….Period. And I don’t really give a shit about his music anymore……..

  • http://-- gaddic

    Fif is simply gettin rid of the competition

    Why so many comments?

    It’s the music i care about
    Not no damn courtroom drama

    You hating fags should jack-off to Judge Judy

  • Nasty Noodles

    His new album is hot steaming ass garbage. He should wuit rapping and stick to suing for now on. He’s lost his mojo.

  • PHARO

    He won’t win….

    That’s like Tiger Woods suing a golf website for using his picture as a theme…. ain’t gonna happen. But,,, with his lawyers… ok maybe he will.

    ,
    .
    it’s not personal it’s business
    .
    .
    50 doesn’t need their promotion ThisIs50 is their competition

  • Nefarious

    I just want to say the law on this topic is very, very vague. I was going to start up a site like this one, and worldstar, and I was going to have pictures of artist I liked or respected… Most pictures are apart of the public domain, as long as there not trying to sell anything; I think worldstar should be good..

  • TUNED2IT

    WELL IF YOU CAN MAKE MONEY SELLIN’ ALBUMS…MAKE MONEY BY WINNIN’ LAWSUITS. HEY YOU CAN’T KNOCK THE HUSTLE. WACK!!!!
