Rapper 50 Cent aka Curtis Jackson has been accused of domestic violence and vandalism after an alleged altercation with the mother of his child. The 37 year old Jackson, has been charged with one count of misdemeanor domestic violence and four counts of vandalism, according to Los Angeles City Attorney spokesman Frank Mateljan.

He stands accused of kicking the woman in question and destroying a very exact figure of $7,100 worth of property at her condominium in the Toluca Lake community of Los Angeles.

The rapper who shot to fame as a protégé of Eminem and off the back of his debut album “Get Rich or Die Tryin," which has sold about 15 million copies across the world and still stands as one of the best selling rap albums of all time.

"The altercation apparently started from an allegation of infidelity on her part," Mateljan said. The woman had apparently locked herself in the bedroom before ‘Fiddy’ allegedly kicked the door in and proceeded to allegedly kick her before going on a ‘vandalism rampage’. He apparently destroyed a chandelier, a television and a piece of furniture amongst other things. Police said that they observed many broken items in the condo and clothes strewn wildly around it and that their estimate of the damage was $7,100. The rapper had already left the scene before police arrived.
