Ross’ legal rep, Xavier Donaldson, released the following statement:
The recent lawsuit filed by Curtis Jackson against Mr. William Roberts is clearly another attempt to draw attention to his descending entertainment career and one of several desperate, last minute attempts he’s made to avoid and deflect legal and financial responsibility for his own actions related to the pending New York City civil trial in which he’s a defendant. The New York City lawsuit was filed against Curtis Jackson five years ago. Mr. Roberts was neither named as a defendant nor legally joined by Mr. Jackson in that suit. If and/or when Mr. Jackson properly serves Mr. Roberts, we will aggressively address and defend against these frivolous and futile claims.
According to reports, 50 Cent had the sex tape lawsuit dismissed by filing for bankruptcy earlier this week — via his SMS promotions boxing company. 50 has yet to respond to Ross’ legal statement.
