Ja Rule is being sued by a Miami, Florida, woman who claims the rapper trashed her mansion while shooting an episode of MTV CRIBS there.

JEANETTE VARELA was outraged when she returned home to the Star Island mansion she leased to Ja Rule, real name JEFFREY ATKINS, to find severe structural damage and discarded condom wrappers and syringes everywhere.

Varela later discovered the WONDERFUL rapper breached the lease agreement by staging a party for more than 600 guests during his four-day stay in 2001 - when she saw footage on MTV.

She insists the lease declared the home was solely used for a private home for eight adults - and ruled out parties.

Varela is demanding more than $1 million (GBP526,300) in damages.
