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, 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.
