Woman sues 50 Cent over sex video

A US woman has sued rapper 50 Cent in New York City, claiming he unlawfully distributed her homemade sex video over the internet after editing himself into it as a wig-wearing narrator.

Lastonia Leviston filed a lawsuit in Manhattan claiming unauthorised use of her name or image and emotional distress caused by the public release of a video she made with a lover in 2008.

The lawsuit claims 50 Cent - real name Curtis Jackson - posted the video on his website last year after blurring out the lover's face.

It also claims the rapper introduces the video while wearing a curly wig and fluffy blue robe and can be heard narrating throughout.
