Multi-platinum rapper 50 Cent is being accused of attacking his ex-girlfriend and trashing her Lake Toluca condo during an altercation that occurred on June 23.

The artist’s ex claims that she locked herself in a bedroom after he started destroying about $7,100 worth of property in her condo. She says he proceeded to break down the door and kicked her.

According to The Associated Press[1], the rapper’s hearing is scheduled for Monday, and he could face up to five years in prison and $46,000 in fines if found guilty. The former couple had dated for three years before calling it quits.

50 Cent — born under the name Curtis Jackson — is perhaps best-known for his 2003 album Get Rich or Die Tryin’. The rapper has had several run-ins with the law in the past, including a 2005 assault and battery conviction.
