50 Cent - 50 Cent due in court for domestic violence

50 Cent is due in court today (05.08.13) over charges of domestic violence.

The 'Candy Shop' hitmaker stands accused of kicking an ex-girlfriend - whom he has a child with - and destroying her condo in Toluca, California, in June, and could face being put behind bars for up to five years and slapped with a hefty fine of $46,000 if he is found guilty of the attack.

The Los Angeles City Attorney said previously that the rapper - whose real name is Curtis Jackson - allegedly caused $7,100 in damages to the unnamed victim's furniture, chandeliers, a TV, a lamp and by ransacking her bedroom during the incident.

Police officers were called to the property and the woman claimed she had locked herself in her bedroom after getting into an altercation with 50, after which he broke down the door and kicked her, resulting in an injury.

The rapper, who is facing five charges - including one count of misdemeanour domestic violence and four counts of misdemeanour vandalism - reportedly left the house before police arrived.

The mystery woman told police she had been in a three-year relationship with the star, who regularly sings about violence and drugs.
