Rapper, 50 Cent has been accused of hitting his baby mama during an argument last month, according to Blackmediascoop. First off, when did he get another baby mama? Well he was charged with domestic violence last week for kicking his baby's mother, which consisted of five charges stemming from the incident. But 50 claims he did not kick her and even his attorney released a statement saying 50 denies those allegations. And by the way, if you thought 50 was arrested, his attorney also said 50 did not get arrested. However, if 50 is found guilty, he faces up to five years in jail and $46,000 in fines. He’s due in court to be arraigned on July 22.
