Teairra Mari sues her ex and 50 Cent in revenge porn case

Teairra Mari was filing a lawsuit against her ex-boyfriend Akbar Abdul Ahad and rapper 50 Cent for posting a sex tape and compromising photo of herself in the middle of a sex act. Today, Teairra Mari and her lawyers Lisa Bloom and Walter Mosley had a press conference explaining what happened, her feelings about the incident and the charges she and her attorneys are pursuing. See what she said below. 

“I just want you to all to know that I’m very nerve-wracked.

Last week, I found out that my boyfriend was cheating on me so I broke up with me. Right after that, he posted a sex tape and an obscene photo of me. Clearly to humiliate me. He had my Instagram password so he posted them on my Instagram to make me look terrible. Of course, I was horrified. I took them down right away and changed my password.

Then, his good friend 50 Cent, posted the obscene photo of me on his Instagram and said, ‘Get the strap.’ 50 Cent has 18 million followers. So, I was devastated. And to make it even worse, even after Instagram took the picture down, he had no remorse, no regard. He posted another photo and complained that IG was censoring him.

At the end of the day, this is what I really feel. I was compromised by someone who I thought loved me as much as I loved him. I’m conflicted, hurt, confused and heartbroken. But at this point, I have to take care of myself. Especially since he has (Akbar that is) has such powerful friends who are backing him and who posted this private moment.

I stand here today, with a broken heart as a result of countless broken promises. Broken promises to protect me, to stand by me and to care for me and to help me on my journey to becoming the best version of myself. Instead, he isolated me, took advantage of me and made me look like a fool.

I stand here in the pursuit of justice, not just for myself but for any other woman who has been exploited by a man, who has felt the pain of having her most intimate moments, unjustly and illegally exposed to the public. I ask that the court take my plea seriously and that my rights as a woman, under the revenge porn law, be protected.”

Lisa Bloom explained that she and her partner Walter Mosley were filing a lawsuit against both rapper 50 Cent and her Teairra’s ex Akbar Abdul Ahad. Bloom also issued a message to the other people online who had reposted the image or video saying that Teairra did not consent to have her image used in that way and if they were not removed, they would be coming after them next.

Bloom also noted that this is not the first time 50 Cent has been involved with a revenge porn case. She noted that in 2015, 50 Cent posted another inappropriate video of another woman. A New York jury ruled a $7 million judgment against him. After losing, he filed for bankruptcy.
