50 Cent - 50 Cent avoids jail in domestic violence case

50 Cent has been given three years probation in a domestic violence case.

The rapper - real name Curtis Jackson - was accused of kicking his ex-girlfriend Daphne Joy, the mother of his second child, during an argument at her home in Toluca Lake, California, in June, however, in a sentencing hearing today (28.10.13) he avoided jail after striking a plea deal with the court.

According to TMZ, prosecutors agreed to drop a criminal charge for misdemeanour domestic violence against the 38-year-old star in exchange for him pleading no contest to one count of misdemeanour vandalism.

50 was given three years probation in court today and ordered to 30 days of community service, as well as counselling.

The star was also ordered to pay Daphne $7,100 for the damage caused to her home during the incident.

The Grammy Award-winning rapper originally faced five charges, including one count of misdemeanour domestic violence and four counts of misdemeanour vandalism, following the incident on June 23.

Police officers were called to the property, where Daphne claimed she locked herself in her bedroom after she got into an altercation with 50 but said he kicked down the door and kicked her, resulting in an injury.
