50 Cent Reportedly Ordered To Pay $16 Million To Sleek Audio
Sleek sued 50 after a 2011 deal with the Queens native for “Sleek by 50″ collapsed. The company also claimed that 50 stole their product design and confidential private client information from a Sleek developed website.
Court documents stated that Sleek reached out to 50′s associates about the client information, and his personal business manager Nicolee Martin reportedly wrote, “[Sleek] is onto us, LOL. They emailed and called … about the data”
An arbitrator previously sided with Sleek which led to an interim agreement for Sleek to receive $11,693,247 in damages. 50 fought to not have to pay those fees, but another ruling came down this week that the rapper must pay the $11.7 million plus an additional $4,488,331 in attorney’s fees – a grand total of $16,181,578.
