50 Cent has decided to take action, against his ex partner, Daphne Joy due to allegations of claims of rape and physical abuse made against him.

His legal team filed a lawsuit against Joy this week in response to a post she shared on Instagram back in March. In the post she accused the rapper of wrongdoings. 50 Cent’s argument is that her actions were prompted by his pursuit of custody for their 11 year son Sire following reports linking Joy to Diddy as one of his “sex workers”.

In her March post Joy conveyed her displeasure with 50 Cent’s mockery regarding the allegations about her profession. She also expressed frustration at having to defend his character for the sake of their son. Accusations of rape and mistreatment during an event after their relationship came to an end were raised by Joy against 50 Cent.

“I am tired of upholding and protecting an image to our son that you have never even earned,” Joy wrote. “Let’s put the real focus on your true evil actions of raping me and physically abusing me. You are no longer my oppressor and my God will handle you from this point on. 

She also added, “You have permanently damaged the last hope I had for you as a father to preserve our family with these last and final false claims made against me. You have broken our hearts for the last and final time.”.

In an aspect of his battle 50 Cent alleged that a social media post, by Daphne Joy garnered over 22,000 likes leading to online harassment against him tarnishing his business reputation and affecting his custody dispute. Legal documents show that 50 Cent sent a letter asking Joy to take down the post. She reportedly refused. Furthermore her legal team demanded a sum from 50 Cent and the dismissal of the custody case in exchange for removing the post.

50 Cent is suing Joy for defamation and is seeking than $1 million, in damages. He also wants a court order for Joy to delete the post and refrain from making any remarks.

His attorneys Reena Jain and Blank Rome told TMZ on Tuesday that despite opportunities to retract an damaging accusation Ms. Narvaez has chosen to disrupt her 11 year old sons bond with his caring father by falsely accusing him of being a ‘rapist’. Ms. Narvaez appears to be influenced by her connection and misguided loyalty, to Mr. Combs, who is suspected of backing this assault despite warnings from Mr. Jackson to her and others, over time.
